Farm News: Well, a mixed blessing with the lack of rain is that the mosquito population has temporarily decreased. We are also really appreciating being able to breath easier without the “thick air” the humidity delivered a few weeks ago. Adán, our 4 year old, has also been playing and helping in the field since the cooler temperature made its presence. This week the fall lettuce and kale will be transplanted. Turnips and spinach were direct seeded as well as the cover crop in some parts of the field. Last but not least we saved peas for seed!
