Somehow, it’s July already and we are already turning over beds and planting again for fall time. The corn is as tall as I am, and endured the wild summer storms we’ve been having recently. It seems I may have over planted lettuce, that being one of my favorite things to plant, but there’s still time for salads to be had before the plants are spent. And I’m feeling hopeful that the weeds won’t take over for good- Our friend Carlos has spent hours this week, turning the tide in our favor in the battle agains the weeds.
How can you get your hands on some of these tender lettuce leaves? Currently, you have two options. We are at the St. Charles Farmer’s Market each Friday morning, beginning at 7am and ending at 1pm. Beginning in late July, get a box of the best of this seasons produce. Go all in (or just half in) and buy a peak season share in our CSA. Shares may be picked up at the FoxPlot or at Moveable Feast.
This Friday at the market, we will have loads of cabbages, kale, broccoli, lettuce and salad mix, beets, and pattipan (those flying saucer shaped sumer squash). We can’t wait to see you there!
