It’s 9 o’clock, and I just got home from the farm. Today was the first rain in two and a half weeks, making it a prime day to plant the fall transplants that are quite stressed from the heat. They were prime to plant 8-10 days ago, but I had heard that the heat wave of last week was coming, and there was no rain in sight, so I held off. Much of the work on the farm is subject to conditions out of our control. Luckily, today was quite a blessing for the plants. I didn’t quite finish the transplanting, but the work will carry over into tomorrow, as it does! Since I plan on being back to work in about 8 hours, I am not going to write the post featuring the recipe contest contestants. Instead, I will simply post the produce list for the week today and then I will devote an entire post tomorrow to our recipe contest! Two posts in one week!
Head Lettuce (unless it bolts tonight!)
1 bunch Chard
Now off to eat the dinner Sam prepared for me.
