Everything happens fast. All of a sudden, we are in it, full tilt.
Potatoes are flowering. In the distance, rows of lettuce were transplanted yesterday, looking slightly like a rainbow, between the new raspberry rows.
This healthy Red Russian kale is so nice to see after several plantings have succumbed to devastating insect damage.
This field, with the enormous Valley Oaks in the background, is where the artichokes were last year. It’s becoming the herb zone because it is a little oddly shaped, perfect for small plantings of more perennial crops.
Lots of Sugar Baby watermelons. We’ll have them next week at the markets. Yummy.
Basil growing under covers to protect from the cucumber beetles.
The winter squash crop here is taking off.
Winter squash is flowering like mad and setting fruit to feed us later.
The Roadside Farm Stand has been so much fun. And the sensational garden in front is only just beginning!
