Last week we noticed that our oakleaf lettuce didn’t keep very long, while our lettuce normally keeps for a couple of weeks, we think the issue was a combination of rain and heat, creating a lot of humidity which contributes to the rot. We were able to get some lettuce for our sandwiches, but we had to throw away layers around the head. If you’d like us to replace any lettuce that you had, please email us. We’ve been receiving daily rain showers that has been preventing us from getting our ground prepared for fall transplants. That means we’re getting a bit nervous about having a production gap between Summer and Fall, but are hopeful to get some ground worked up later this week.
This week we were pleased to help our guests pick some flowers so they could make a bouquet for the Barn Loft! It made us so happy to hear their comments on how impressive it was seeing all the pollinators feeding on our flowers. So perhaps while we’ve noticed a huge decline in our pollinators, our guests seem to think we have quite a few, so we’re hopeful that our population will recover.
