We hadn't planned on having broccoli ready this week, but with all of the rain we've had we should have expected it to shoot up out of nowhere. Also surprising was that our snap peas are handling the warming weather nicely and decided to let us have one final harvest! Members this week received a bunch of beautiful red beets, garlic scapes, cherriette radishes, a pint of sugar snap peas, a bag of salad mix and a bunch of broccoli. Looking forward to next week!

Our sweet potato slips are in! Slips are like little stem cuttings that have root nubs. After preparing our beds you can see Todd here planting each slip under every emitter hole on our drip tape. The slips should never be allowed to completely dry out in this hot weather. They look a little sad, but as we learned last year they tend to look a bit worse before they start to look better. We are growing 3-4 rows this year and trying a new variety called O'Henry that has light colored skin and golden flesh.
