Another 4+ inches of rain yesterday (might have been more, my rain gauge only goes up to 4 inches). Provided we don't need a canoe to get out to your vegetables or build lifeboats for the chickens, we're back in business this week. It always takes some extra work, but with a little extra care, most of our crops made it through the brutal cold, ice, and flooding over the last two weeks. Some warmer weather and abundant sunshine is just what's direly needed this week, for both your food and farmers!
Some broccoli coming out of the greenhouse this week; I'm sure you all could eat more, but it's all I had the space for. The rest of the romanesco happily made it through the last few weeks' nasty weather, though it took a double layer of row covers plus a length of extra plastic sheeting we happened to have hanging around to nurse it through - yay! Still loads of celery, arugula, and spinach available. Eggs are still limited to one dozen per order, though the ladies are slowly ramping up their production as the days get longer. I am out of mixed baby lettuce this week, but should have some bibb, romaine, and red leaf lettuce heads available in a week or two to help mix up your winter salad plates a bit.
