2019 Week 35, Summer CSA 13 of 26
A pictorial for you all, as the internet ate the first note, and now there’s farmwork to be done!
As a heads-up, I may be out digging potatoes again during this week’s pick-up. They need to be out and the beds prepped for fall spinach by the 1st of September. We are looking for cool weather and moist soil, and are eyeing the forecast intently, as spinach is most definitely not a summer crop. But we keep their seed in the fridge all year, and can seed a little deeper depending upon the weather. After trialing 20 varieties over the last few years, we are down to ‘Space’ and ‘Gazelle’ as the best fall picks. It’s pretty nice to reduce the complexity at seeding and harvest time down to 1 or 2 proven varieties, though I am still in search of a good open-pollinated option.
