Happy 4th of July weekend! On the farm it has been extremely hot and extremely dry. Lettuce is bolting, as well as some of the broccoli we planned to give you over the next few weeks. Upcoming in the next few weeks: beets, radicchio, cherry tomatoes! The garlic will be ready to harvest in a week or two as well, and we’re planting our final winter squashes and cut flowers which will be harvested at the end of the season – can you believe it?
