We just experienced the wildest weather that I can remember. I'm not sure if it was technically a hurricane but the winds were crazy high all day yesterday sending branches flying, landscape fabric taking off and destroying many poor squash plants in the process, a greenhouse that threatened to tear apart and my poor nerves to almost shatter. I was scared to look outside this morning to see what might be left of my precious greenhouse. I peeked through the curtains and there it was, standing strong in all its glory. I still haven't been out to really assess the full damage to all the plants but seeing the greenhouse still standing brought much relief.
Week #2 had lots of greens again. I'm beginning to wonder if we'll ever have anything more than greens this season. It's been a much different start to the season than the last two years. I keep planting but the weeds keep trying to take over. I'll have to have a crop rescue party soon. This weeks shares included lettuce mix, spinach, beetgreens/swiss chard mix, summer turnips, radishes, Chinese cabbage, tatsoi and a spicy mizuna/arugula mix. The grab boxes had gorgeous bok choy, swiss chard bunches, lettuce heads and more of the above mentioned veggies.
