Week 10 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (8/6/2014)

Well its that time of year again when the kids go back to school! This year we have had an excellent, motivated, crew that has put in several hours of weeding, picking, washing, shredding, and prepping your vegetables. Next week, only Ryan and Laura will remain on the farm full time as most of theContinue reading “Week 10 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (8/6/2014)”

Week 9 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (7/30/14)

Hello again, Well after the wet spring we had it seems as though the rain has been shut off. So the name of the game at Pekarek’s Produce has become IRRIGATION! Amongst all of the other daily and weekly work on the farm, Ryan is now running irrigation non-stop. We irrigate as much of ourContinue reading “Week 9 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (7/30/14)”

Week 8 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (7/23/14)

Wow! This has been crazy July weather. We’ve all been enjoying the seasonally cool weather this summer and have even had some July mornings picking vegetables in sweatshirts. 55 degrees overnight (note the sweatshirts and long sleeves in JULY!) doesn’t usually hit at the same time as cucumber and zucchini season. The only downside is thatContinue reading “Week 8 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (7/23/14)”

Week 7 of Pekareks Produce CSA (7/16/2014)

Most Saturdays throughout the year, you will see one or two people coming through the market withContinue reading “Week 7 of Pekareks Produce CSA (7/16/2014)”

Week 6 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (7/9/14)

Well, we survived the 4th of July weekend and even had some time to enjoy the fireworks! The greenhouse is about half full of transplants that we are growing for the fall. The weather is great for growing transplants, but as the temperatures heat up, we find ourselves watering the greenhouse several times of dayContinue reading “Week 6 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (7/9/14)”

Week 5 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (7/2/14)

Happy 4th of July Weekend! (almost) This past week has been all about continuing the momentum here on the farm. There have been no major ups or downs, but consistency is the name of the game in the marathon vegetable season we run at Pekarek’s Produce. We survived yet another round of storms that cameContinue reading “Week 5 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (7/2/14)”

Week 4 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (6/24/14)

Dobry Den! It seems like we’ve been in full swing on the farm for a long time now. Alex, Ryan and myself went to Omaha to tear down three greenhouses that Ryan found for us to purchase. It was an all-day event involving a bobcat, power tools, hammers, pliers, and a lot of grunting. InContinue reading “Week 4 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (6/24/14)”

Week 2 of Pekarek’s Produce CSA (6/10/14)
