|Wow – it’s been a fun week at the Pekarek’s. We had almost 2 inches of rain, lots of wind, school shopping and a baseball tournament!|
On The Farm
|Ryan picked the first few ears of sweet corn this week and ate them for lunch. A couple of them were a little young, so he’s thinking we’ll pick the first few dozen on Wednesday or Thursday! We are also enjoying the first two cantaloupe of the season in our house… it won’t be long before we are swimming in them! We’ve also started picking pickling cucumbers, so get ready for canning season 😊|
|I can’t say enough for the rain around here. We’ve been blessed to get a few really nice shots of rain that take the pressure off irrigating. It also means we are able to do a few more maintenance type things. We hope to “skin” this greenhouse today – meaning we are going to put plastic on it so we can use it again. The downside of this week’s rain was that it came with wind – so the raspberries got pretty beat up, some of the corn went down, and whole eggplant plants got tossed around!|
Fridays in the Field
|Ryan was on “Fridays in the Field” with Alex Voichoskie on KRVN talking about everything it takes to get ready for a farmer’s market – including picking seven days each week. They were here on a Wednesday, so there was even some footage of packing your weekly vegetable subscription bags!
