Jarfly, a restaurant in Columbus, has ordered slicing tomatoes the past two weeks so if you get a chance stop by and ask for a tomato from our farm.

Melissa, a good friend and past employee, stopped by the farm for a few hours of berry picking in the berry jungle.

We are entering peak tomato harvest so be sure to come shop now while they are available. Plenty of tasty slicers, salad tomatoes, and reduced price blemished tomatoes.

The beautiful Okra, Basil, and flower field. We’re in it regularly, harvesting Okra 3 days a week

Maybe the prettiest field on the whole farm: mature lettuce, hot peppers, flowers, and eggplant.

So many Locally produced options when shopping at the farm…

This is our second succession of squash and cucumbers. The insect netting will hopefully protect the squash from an early squash bug attack. We’ll remove the covers at the very last second when they begin flowering.

Ladybugs at two different developmental stages on aphid patrol in the Eggplant crop. We have so many aphids on about half our eggplant crop, but with lots of ladybugs and a spraying of mineral oil we are hopeful the outbreak is somewhat contained.

Tulsi loves picking “Buubaas” even more than strawberries. Look at how fast that little hand moves!

When temps reach 90s for consecutive days, with lows in the 70s and high humidity too, this is what happens- tomato blooms start to die. Luckily our plants have already set abundant fruit before this point, so we don’t expect to have too much of a hit to our harvest, but it is sad to see the plants suffer like this, and a bummer to know we’ll have less fruit overall. But not to fear! Lots of tomatoes should be hitting our market table and CSA shares very soon because we planted a lot.

Peppers are on the horizon! Pictured left to right are shishito (a Japanese appetizer pepper), a purple bell called “Tequilla”, purple cayenne, and a green bell, which we will generally leave on the plants to ripen to the sweeter red color.

What’s Available at Wednesday Market?

Sorry for the late list…..Jenny got dehydrated yesterday and we spend the evening in the ER getting fluids back  into her. She was drinking lots of water but no electrolytes so we’ll be adding lemon to our water on these hot days from now on. And being sure to keep up our intake of leafy greens, which are apparently another good natural source of electrolytes. We eat greens with every lunch at least, and she happened to hurry through lunch yesterday and skipped our big salad. In Summary……take care of yourselves out in this heat!!

Anyway, here’s what’s on the table this week:

Carrots, Beets,  Microgreens, MicroCilantro, Green Garlic, Green Onions, Watermelon Radishes, Rainbow Chard, Kale, Collards, Sweet Asian Turnips, Pak Choi, Tat Soi, Dill, Parsley, Fennel, last of the Strawberries! Sweet Potatoes, Carrots, Lettuce, Napa Cabbage, Kohlrabi, Cucumbers, Arugula and first of the sungold tomatoes!!

Still some transplants left from the plant sales: mostly flowers and basil and oregano.

We’ve already installed our summer lettuce shade tunnel. 30% shade cloth, PVC bows over rebar, landscape fabric to prevent weeds, and sprinklers for a midday cool down. Beautiful Elderberry is the tall bush blooming in the background. These blooms will produce berries this summer, which we’ll pick to make the anti-viral tincture. Elderberry Tincture available again this fall!

We thought the sweet onions were lost in the weeds but we ended up with a good crop!
