August has arrived which means watermelon will hopefully ripen by the end of the month! This week we discovered vine borer damage in the squash, most damage done to the Hubbard varieties. The squash that have formed look great – we are hoping the squash will continue to ripen despite the invasive bug inside the vines of the plants.
Anticipated Harvest – New this week green beans! Also look for cukes, zucchini, fennel, kale, beets, carrots, potatoes, tomatoes, and onions.
In our kitchen: Beet and onion hash, zucchini bread, carrot cake, caramelized fennel and eggs or rice, fennel tea, BLT, dilly beans, refrigerator pickles, and potato salad.
Have a great week!
