We said good-bye to interns David Rittenhouse and Verena Eichenberger. They were with us for a long time and we appreciate their help. In fact, the farm would not look half as good without the help we get from all our interns. May their paths be blessed!
We welcome Courtney Kocher from Illinois who started her internship this week.
As for vegetables, we have lots of tomatoes, zucchini, cucumbers peppers, and beets. We have a small amount of broccoli and pole beans. We'll cut basil and Swiss Chard again this week. There's a new planting of mesclun lettuce to cut. We'll continue to give everyone garlic and the harvesters will get okra.
Our eggplants did not do well this year, but we'll have at least 1 for each of you this week. The corn is ready. It is so sweet and tender, it hardly needs cooking! And the potatoes are in; an early red potato that is creamy when cooked.
Dill weed heads are available for pickling. Cut your own while you're here.
