The last week of summer is upon us. Hope fully you will get in a couple more swims and some afternoons with your feet up. I know that is our goal.
The end of the heat and humidity is so welcome. It has come a bit late for a few crops that are suffering from diseases that we usually don't see for another month. Heat stresses out the plants and the humidity opens the door for some very happy fungal invaders. Our leafy greens have been hit the hardest, losing their older leaves and trying to keep up with younger ones. Luckily the forecast is for temperate cool and dry air.
We have had lots of good feedback on our sunflower cover crop. The field has been challenging the Saturday Farmer's market for most congested traffic spot in town. We have another week with them so enjoy the view while you can. Building soil was never so beautiful.
