Farm Update – May 16th

You likely noticed, but it’s cold out. Very cold. Frost warnings at night and chilly rainy days during the day. Cold weather crops like asparagus, broccoli, lettuce, and kale will be just fine. However, the rain does slow the ripening down. Strawberries from local fields are close to being ready, but the cold is slowing them down. Asparagus is slowing down, as is the rhubarb.

The good news, we held off on planting some of our crops this year a little longer just in case it got a little chilly. So we shouldn’t be impacted too badly. Now let’s just hope the warmth does arrive eventually.
