Hard to believe but we’re more than half way through 2015. Pumpkins and other winter squash are ripening. The corn is finished, much to the disappointment of our local customers. Tomatoes are ripe and the melons are so aromatic the bees are tumbling around in their flowers. The pictures should speak louder than my words.

We have had our hands full between the markets and restaurants and the new farm stand.
In the background is the consistent planning and planting new beds of vegetables for sale in the months to come. The early planting of winter squash is almost ready to be picked. The acorn squash are the biggest we have ever seen.
The artichokes have surprised us. They are popping out all over even though we expected them to start in November or December. This is certainly a crop we are learning about.
To add to the normal summer chaos, we are leasing almost 5 acres of land adjacent to the property Paul has been working for all these many years. It’s got some drawbacks (it’s the low spot on the property and much of the soil is quite sticky clay) but we are thrilled and Paul has been mowing, putting water out and tilling.
