News from the Farm…

Hi friends!

We are so relieved to have finally gotten some rain after many many weeks of drought. The dry conditions have taken a toll on some of our crops – poor germination and stressful growing conditions have impacted our yields, and that will continue to ripple out over the coming months. Now that soil conditions have improved, we will reseed our late summer/fall carrots, beets, and parsnips, and add some fast-growing radishes, turnips, greens, and herbs to try to fill the likely gap. And we’ll get back to our regular cultivation, field prep, and planting schedule as well. I’m sure you’ve noticed that some of the crops in the PYO field suffered under the dry conditions… sugar snap peas will have a particularly short season this year, but most other plants should recover. Hope you are enjoying the PYO flowers, which are thriving despite the weather and always bring so much joy! Summer crops are doing great as well. We expect to add peppers, fresh onions, baby carrots, and even the first of the melons and tomatoes not too long from now. Thanks so much for being a part of our farm community and for your ongoing support. We are grateful to get to grow food for all of you.

On behalf of our entire amazing team,
Love, wellness, and full bellies,
Ray
