Future Harvests:
We are still waiting on the edamame;  it just isn’t quite ready yet–many of the pods still haven’t filled in yet.


In the near future (perhaps as soon as next week) we will have the first of our fall arugula.  And not too far behind is the mesclun, a colorful mix of Asian and mustard greens, and our first fall planting of French breakfast radishes.  We’ve been busy planting our fall crops and they are coming along nicely. We have broccoli, cauliflower, brussels sprouts, red, green and savoy cabbages, turnips, watermelon radishes planted and growing nicely.
