Box Notes: The melons are still at their peak of flavor and sweetness. A simple way to

enjoy the cucumbers and melons is: cut both into bite size pieces, toss together with chili,

lemon and salt. This is a quenching salad that satisfies your sweet and savory palettes all at

once. A quick thank you to the team at

in Woodland for featuring our farm at their inaugural Dinner with a Farmer last Friday, a sold-out event. They created a delicious menu using produce and pastured meat from the farm. We’re looking forward to participating in more farm dinners with Savory Café in the future!

Field Notes: The greenhouses are full to the brim with fall and winter transplants: cabbage,

broccoli, fennel, lettuce, chicories, and kale. We have started moving the transplants into the

field as they size up. The overlapping summer harvest and prep for the fall/winter crops is

always a juggling act on the farm. While we harvest the peppers, tomatoes, eggplant and

melons, we are keeping the leeks and other alliums weed-free and preparing beds in the

fields to make space for the rows and rows of cooler weather crops. Luckily, our temperate

northern California climate has a very long growing season. This allows the farm to provide

year round employment and to have produce for the CSA and year-round farmer’s markets that we attend.
