My my how the time does fly. It seems like yesterday, and long ago all at once that I posted the bird cam. Baby birds hatched and flew long ago, and the camera has yet to be setup on something new.
The extended spring weather has been lovely on the farm. The rain and sun cycle has been great for growing things (especially weeds).
Today I am finishing up last weeks work of catching up in the Tomato house. It looks so far like this might be our best tomato year yet. The plants are tall and strong, and the bugs and worms are mostly leaving us alone so far (knock on wood). We prune the plants to a single leader in hopes of increasing the yield, size, and quality of the fruit. All of our plants are heirloom varietals, and the reward for the extra work required to grow these varieties is fantastically flavorful fruits.
Life on the farm is good as usual, and as always we appreciate the support we recieve from our customers. This is the time of year when variety improves, and the yield becomes abundant, so be sure to check in with us to see what's coming into season!
