Lets take a look at progress on crops. Lettuce mix, salad/cooking greens, spinach, arugula, radishes and asparagus ready for next week’s CSA. Coming soon: baby summer squash, squash blossoms, snow peas, sugar snap peas, Swiss chard, broccoli raab, baby beets, green onions, kohlrabi and strawberries. Coming along: tomatoes (flower buds ready to open), diakon radishes, Chinese cabbage, cucumbers and carrots. Planted in the field or high tunnels but down the road aways: green beans (at our neighbor’s), peppers, broccoli, cauliflower, potatoes (they are up) and sweet corn (not up yet). Up in transplant trays: watermelons, cantaloupes, okra, cilantro, and basil. Not planted yet: eggplant, pumpkins and winter squash.
On the communication front: we are now using posterous.com, where we send an email with photo attachments and the title is the heading for the blog and the text is the body of the blog with the attached photos. Also the title of the email becomes the twitter text. Last week the tweet did not come through, we will try it again this week.
