The Chef’s Tour on Tuesday ended with a visit to Bending Bridge Farm. They are in their first full season on this new site and it was a breezy but very warm afternoon. Cameron and Audrey Pederson were our hosts. Cameron commented how we had barely any Spring this season and until recently how dry it had been. The impacts of the elements were no weeds and no fungus diseases typical in a normally wet Spring. It has also speeded up growth as with their strawberries, which we were permitted to sample. That was the good news. The bad news was that the weather has favored bugs and in the open fields, the bugs hold advantage working on the bok choi and beet and radish tops.
WHAT HOLIDAY? TOG will be in the office on Monday taking orders, packing your orders and delivering on Tuesday!
