2021 Weekly Vegetable Subscription – Week 2

As a farmer, it feels like you are always talking about the weather – because we are.  Every evening, we make plan for the next day and every morning, we have to revise that plan! This month’s theme seems to be rain.

On The Farm

The rain is a blessing in that we aren’t spending so much time irrigating right now, but as a result of the rain, we are spending a lot of time weeding. We are mostly use mechanical control on the farm – that means a lot of hoeing!  Ryan even has a favorite type of hoe. Personally, I prefer mechanical control in the form of a tractor…. it’s a lot easier on our bodies.  

Check out this video of Ryan using a “belly mounted basket weeder” in the field.  It doesn’t get the large weeds (we’ll come back through and pull those by hand), but it does get the little ones.  So as long as we get out there when weeds are small, we can keep it pretty clean.

Basket Weeding at Pekarek’s Produce – May 2021

We are in prime salad season!  Spinach, Lettuce and the fixins are producing well in the slightly cool and wet spring. Strawberries a blooming like crazy, so I’m hoping we have the first of the strawberries around June 7ish.  Raspberries are getting ready too, so we should see those a week or two after the strawberries.  We’ve started pulling beets this week and carrots should be ready in about another week.  The cole crops like kohlrabi, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage are coming along nicely and we should start seeing those ready to go in a couple weeks as well.
