While it rained cats and dogs in Connecticut last week, there was less than 1 in rain at the farm, but it was enough to make the lettuce happy. What I’m worried about now is that the sun keeps shining and the temperature keeps climbing above 80. A few days is all that is needed for cool weather crops to bolt and send up a flower stalk. When that happens, while it is still edible, there really isn’t much time before the stalks get tough.
So we are distributing the first Greenwich share 1 week early, today! I thought I had all the time in the world to set up the distribution and make custom coolers, and, and… I was wrong. Who knew tractor supply would sell out of pails (I grabbed the last couple for now). I’ll be buying some ice to keep things cool.
