|The cob wall is getting higher and higher!|
|Exactly what it says|
Luckily we were able to harvest and market a lot of lettuce at Petit Jean Farmer's Market this Saturday, and in our Community Supported Agriculture (CSA). The Farmer's Market is the first Saturday of every month at 1039 Win Rock Drive, Morrilton 72110. On most other days the owner of the venue, Ed Martzof, sells honey and cheese there.
|Just look at it.|
|It's only $2 ;)|
Not everything is positive here at the farm, however. This hot weather we've been having is worrisome for us. Lots of late spring veggies that typically mature around this time will start to "bolt" if hot weather comes too soon. Bolting is when a vegetable like radish, cabbage, turnip, spinach, lettuce, or arugula stops making tender, leafy greens. The leaves get tough and bitter, and the plant puts up a thick stalk that flowers and seeds. We are unable to sell it at this point. Here is a picture of a row of Chinese Cabbage starting to bolt up with yellow flowers:
May your table be blessed with bounty till we meet again!
