Last Week for Peaches?
This will likely be the last week for peaches from Pekarek’s Produce. If you are interested in canning or freezing peaches, be sure to get them this week!
On The Farm
|In the weekend’s storm, we received 2.75″ of rain. As you know, rain makes life a little easier in some ways and a little harder in others. We were able to take a few days off from irrigating crops and focus on cleaning up some things on the farm. We also have been having fun tromping through the mud to pick this week! Even things like cantaloupe are getting washed before entering the packing shed and then run through the wash line before they get sent out the door.|
One crop of green beans is coming to an end, so we had a simple harvest where we pulled the entire plant and pulled green beans off. Typically we will get two or three pickings before we pull the plant out of the ground. We will continue to have green beans for a long time! As we pulled these plants out of the ground, Ryan planted more for down the road!
Canning, Freezing, and Pickling
Now is the time of year to get some canning, freezing and pickling done. We have a full supply of tomatoes, peppers, onions, pickling cucumbers, dill, beets, green beans, and corn. All of these are available in bulk quantities (and pricing) if you want to make some spaghetti sauce or homemade pickles!
