July is my least favorite month to farm. It’s not just the heat, it’s the fact that everything tries to eat my crops. I think July has hit us early this year.
The past couple weeks have been trying for all of us. Two weeks ago we lost all of our lettuce transplants to a irrigation system snafu, and this week our squash succumbed to the horrible wilt and deer jumped the fence to our field and ate all our beans.
We ask our box customers to be forgiving if our boxes are a little light on squash, beans, and lettuce for the next few weeks.
