Our first tomatoes are ripening, eggplants are getting big, and the couple of okra that were small a few days ago suddenly were gigantic. Plus we’re going to have so many hot peppers. It looks like it’s going to be a very productive year at the farm, and our harvest piles on the table are becoming more varied — not just green veggies now!
We’re trying to get better at succession planting so we pulled up some bolted arugula and lettuces too tall to stand upright, as well as what was left of the snap peas and put in some brussels sprouts for a fall harvest. We also got soil for the new beds this week and are planning what to put in there — probably some root veggies to make use of the deep, rich soil!
