This week's CSA Share

Since the new CSA season started at the beginning of this month, I figured it was time for another share photo. This week's large share, minus the dozen eggs:

The share includes bull's blood beets, green onions, hakurei turnips, d'avignon radishes, vates kale, mixed greens (bloomsdale spinach, green salad bowl lettuce and buttercrunch lettuce), the last of the red salad bowl head lettuce, thyme, citrus thyme, rosemary, dill and cilantro.

The incredible heat we've had for the past week has shot the head lettuces in the high tunnel, and I'm doing what I can to keep the younger lettuces going in the market garden. This past weekend I cut up a bunch of shade cloth for cover to give them a fighting chance. The spinach is already bolting, the radishes are turning pithy, the endive is long gone, and the hot summer stuff is still growin'. Next week should be interesting. I need to nurse these greens along until I have tomatoes, peppers, and squash!

That is a good size share!
I look forward to getting more greens from the garden.
