Lying Around Being Cranky at Town Farm

Posted 7/22/2013 6:33pm by OONA COY & BEN JAMES.

Hey Everyone –hana transplanting

The heat slowed us down last week, or maybe I should just speak for myself. I was moving slow, and most of the crops weren't doing anything besides looking wilty, and even the ground that we were prepping for fall broccoli & kale & cabbage was just lying there being cranky. But – amazingly – Hana & Adam, our principal crew members, were still running from field to field, still picking tomatoes in a 110-degree greenhouse, still operating tractors & weedwackers & irrigation pumps with sweat pouring over their eyes. We truly would not have any food for you all without these two, so please give them a big thanks when you see them at market.

We're ready for some rain to fall, especially with all the new starts in the ground. And, of course, we know that a little precipitation couldn't keep you from market this Tuesday, where you'll find a summer treasure-chest full of green beans, tomatoes, onions, squash & cucumbers, cilantro, carrots, beets, and a lot more, including the last of the season's raspberries (come early for those).

Hope to see you there!
