Field Report

Heron Pond Farm CSA August 24 - 30

Posted by Andre Cantelmo :: Saturday, August 23 :: 9:08am

  The scope of our daily harvest continues to increase as we enter late August. Salad greens are again in the mix and sweet peppers have started to become abundant. Tomatoes continue to be strong and we are tending a late tunnel planting that will hopefully bring us tomatoes from late September into October. We are coming out of our early corn problems, but still do not have enough corn to bring into the share. We are getting very close to some beets and carrots. Water, mechanical cultivation and hand weeding have really moved them along.

  Our friends at Apple Hill Farm in Concord, NH are now harvesting their delicious peaches and you will find those in your share this week. They do a fantastic job of harvesting their peaches as close to ripe as possible so that they have all the flavor but don't turn to mush.
