This heat ripens the tomatoes fast.

This heat ripens the tomatoes fast.  Get your canning tomatoes now while they are abundant.

 

This phenomena of lots of heat is pushing the maturity of many crops at a fantastic rate. We picked over 180 lbs of cauliflower this morning and I started into the first 50 foot of the broccoli patch and had a  big green  tub filled. The spinach, lettuce and all the other leafy greens are growing quickly with the combination of heat and irrigation water.  Napa cabbage,  Pac choi and green beans are abundant and beautiful.

I was looking over the weather data for this summer.  We only had a few days this summer with high temperatures  in the mid 80s. The whole summer was cool and wet. Now it is so hot and dry.  We did almost no irrigation all summer and now when we would be normally putting all this equipment away it is being used a lot. We are so effected by the weather on produce truck gardens. If you could see into our back coolers where we store things you would see huge swings in harvested produce. Right now things are ripening as fast as we can harvest and spaces are filling up.

We have a sale on cauliflower this week as supplies allow.. If one takes 20 lbs or more we are selling this gorgeous cauliflower  for $1.25 per lb  Daniel
