Yes, you are probably over talking about the 80 degree weather in December. But in agriculture we gotta talk about it.
Even some of our heat tolerant winter crops are succumbing to bolting.
We have more successions of crops on the way and are keeping a close eye on crops to harvest them before this early flowering process occurs when possible.

Ahoy, big day ahead on Thursday, January 7th!
We are hyped about the big 5% Day at Whole Foods Market next week. 5% Day is when the Whole Foods Market stores of the Tampa Bay area ( Tampa, Carrollwood, and Clearwater ) will donate 5% of their net sales on January 7th to Sweetwater. That’s right to your community farm!
This is a way that you can get your weekly grocery shopping done and support Sweetwater Farm at the same time. Funds generated at the 5% Day help to support our educational field trips, classes, and outreach events. See you there!
