Recently, one of our crew members said, "I bet no one really knows how much weeding we do on the farm". And I totally agreed with him!
So, I thought this was a good place to mention... How much weeding we do here!!!! Almost no veggies can handle much in the way of weed pressure. Some can handle more than others. Our summer lettuce crop is one that has to be weed free pretty much the entire time it is growing. Otherwise, it will succumb to rot and disease. And much of our weeding is done by the fabulous hands of our crew members!
The next time you interact with a farmer, make sure to thank her/him for keeping your summer lettuces weed free!!!
