What a week of weather we had! Here in South Hampton more than 6 inches of rain fell in a week. Many fields are very wet and will remain so for several days. The clouds and cooler temperatures slowed down the growth of many crops. Although there are some clouds out now the forecast looks promising through the week ahead. We'll need all the good weather we can get in order to catch up on our planting and so that our crops will ripen. Strawberries are on schedule, but peas and onions are a week or two behind last year. We have pulled a few beets but they are only just starting to size up. We have a small gap in our lettuce harvest but will have more for next share. We are still battling aphids in our greenhouse tomatoes, but things are looking better and once we get to a sizable harvest tomatoes should remain in the share.
If you haven't heard yet we are having a grand opening celebration for our new store at Eastman's Corner in Kensington. The festivities will begin at 3:00 next Saturday at the Kensington store. Come on down and see us!
