Yikes! We’re 3 days into summer and rain is predicted. Possibly more than an inch over the next couple of days. That is a very unusual forecast for this spot on the globe at this time of the year. The impact for the farm and the crops is minimal though the moisture will certainly encourage weeds to germinate all over the place. Formerly clean beds will need attention before the crop is over run with something unwanted.
Paul mows down a summer cover crop on June 13th.
Same field today after 10 days “digesting”.
Watermelons are sizing up!
Love the Little Gems
This crop of beans is in our new field and has almost no weeds!
7 beds of carrots are germinating beautifully
The carrots we are picking now are delicious
Cleaning up the radishes with a wheel hoe.
Looks like the seed ran out on this row of radishes. Should be ready in a few weeks.
Even on a grey day, the bees are busy.
