Farm Update July 8, 2017

We are still looking for farm workers and for volunteers on harvest and other days. Please contact me at joe@southwindsfarm.org or 520-909-4903 if you are interested or if you know anyone who would like to intern or volunteer.

We had a great start to the monsoon on July 3rd with about 3/4in of rain and a trace on the 4th. We are hoping to receive more rain soon!

The tomatoes, cucumbers and bush bean plants are loaded with fruit that aren’t quite ready to pick yet. The summer squash is another matter as we have been harvesting about 40 pounds of patty pan and zucchini every day lately. Also, I checked the potato plants a couple days ago and they should be ready to harvest in two weeks or so.

We will see you at the market!
