The farm has turned a dramatic and crispy golden color. The soil has deep cracks and fissures, and anything not on regular irrigation is drying out immediately. We still have not received a good soaking on the South Shore. The mango trees are flowering, but will need water to set fruit. So keep doing the rain dance for some April showers still to come at the ARTfarm!The lettuce is really suffering from the dry soil. The heads are small and the fire ants are moving in. But lucky you, Luca saved up the harvest until Friday, so there will be Saturday salad mix! Saturday farmstand: sweet salad mix, arugula salad mix, some cucumbers, some slicer and heirloom tomatoes, lots and lots of cherry tomatoes, Italian basil, garlic chives, parsley, dill, cilantro, nice seasoning peppers and Serrano peppers, radishes, a few bunches of carrots, a few watermelons, hopefully a few figs, lots of ginger and turmeric, and zinnia flowers.
We’ll be open a few more Saturdays until we run out of either food or customers!
