These and other Fall transplants (broccoli, kale, lettuce) made it in the ground the past few days. We hope their stunted greenhouse growth in the warm summer heat will explode in these earlier than normal ‘fall-like’ temperatures. Also waiting for the rain coming up are many of the Fall seeds, including daikon radishes, carrots, beets, and turnips. We hope we can trust the thunderstorms coming on Thursday/Friday (like they have consistently done on schedule the past month or so) to water-in these Fall seedlings and seeds.
And just in case you thought the volleyball net out at the farm was just for show—in the spirit of the Olympics, we decided to prove that playing volleyball in boots is truly hilariously entertaining. Our lunchtime games are keeping the farm crew upbeat during the otherwise (and sometimes) drab routine of weeding, sweating, harvesting, and hoeing.
