CSA Harvest - Week #4

Hello Everyone, 

It's a beautiful Summer morning here. I was out early today and as the sun was rose our neighbor's sheep were all entering the field and excited to scratch their backs on the side roll, so funny. 

I'm happy to see clouds, a chance of rain and a little cool off in the forecast. It is much needed! I think I forget how demanding June is every year. The days are long, the temperatures climb high, the to do lists are endless and trying to determine what to prioritize first is tricky as everything is time sensitive. We found ourselves working a few too many hours this week and I may have had a couple melt downs. Whew! But it's Wednesday, the harvest is complete and I'll be heading to Telluride this afternoon with produce for our wonderful CSA Members. Yes! 

Everything is growing beautifully and so fast right now. It's amazing. I'm really excited about our onions and potatoes this season. Mike gave the potatoes a second hilling yesterday. Grow lovelies grow! 

We spent most of the week weeding and had a few rescue missions. The beets and carrots were completely swallowed by thistle and bindweed, but not any more! 

I discovered the first tomato horn worm last night... seems a bit early? I was out weeding the latest succession of greens when I looked over at the tomatoes and noticed a couple leaves were chomped... and right next to them was this little trouble maker!
