The balance of July

This second week of July is what we like to call balance week. Imagine a playground seesaw or teeter totter with the months of April, May and June on one side and August, September and October on the other. The early months are all planting and care; filling up acres and acres of ground with seeds and transplants. The later months are all harvest of those crops with little time for anything else. This week we are sitting in the middle of July, balanced on the fulcrum and about to push off into the heavy lifting part of the year. I really enjoy these couple weeks. They are my last chance to repair some broken things, finish a project or two and just take stock of the season so far. This year we have a great crew.  Everyone is trained and gung-ho for the months ahead. My only desire at this point is for a good soaking rain. Not too much to ask for right?


Like an old friend carrots are back this week. This first week’s harvest are small and sweet as we begin work our way through a quarter acre that was sown back on April 12. We hope to have a steady supply of our favorite crop through the fall.
