True summer is only a few days away now, and we’ve been having plenty of storms to help keep the farm well-watered. We’re seeing more signs of the harvests to come (aside from the plentiful greens we’ve been enjoying) — our first snap peas and lots of bush bean blossoms were most seductive today. Almost all our tomatoes are flowering now, so it won’t be long until we have ripe veggies to share.
The green beans we replanted late popped up quickly, and there are some lovely white onion flowers up on the hill, a beautiful organic variety one of our composters saved from the bin. Overall the farm is starting to fill up with greenery.
On July 1st, in addition to our usual Saturday tasks, we’re getting a bunch of soil and lumber to fill and build new raised beds. Anyone interested in lending a hand should come between 10 and 11am.
