Summer’s Almost Here!

Hey everyone, visit web

It’s been a while since the ┬álast update–things have been busy here at the farm. Since last time, the trees have all been pruned, the field has been ploughed and almost all the crops planted. All that’s left to plant are the the eggplants. So far we’ve got in the carrots, green onions, peppers, cucumbers, butternut squash, beets, romaine lettuce, golden and green zucchini, Early Girl and Juliet tomatoes, summer cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Italian Dandelion, Dill, Russian and Lacinato kale, Warba potatoes, shelling and snap peas, green beans, Romano beans, and fennel. As a trial I also stuck in a small amount of pac choi and boc choi to see if I can successfully grow it!

To Hal Taylor, they pickling onions will be in the ground sooner than later!! I promise.

Otherwise, the cherries are looking like they’re going to be on time–the first week of July. The blueberries are looking excellent, as are the apples and the plums. Really great pollination that we had with that two week stretch of summer-like weather we had a week or so ago. The rains were also welcomed with open arms as everything grew an extra inch, rain beats irrigation when it comes to benefits for almost all crops. Next time I manage to get out and take a few shots I’ll post them, but yesterday I uploaded some shots from early May before I got everything in–take a look-see in the gallery, they should be on the last 2 pages.
