Catching up....


Trying to catch up with blogging! Lots of stuff happening around here!  Planting, planting like mad! Harvesting huge heads of Lettuce and Asian Greens like Bok Choy and Tatsoi; Weeding, hoeing, cultivating! What we've been up to the past few weeks: planting Winter Squash, second planting of Cucumbers, Sweet Potatoes (yes, another crop!**), transplanting Celeriac, Brussel Sprouts, Tomatoes (roma, round & cherry & heirloom), Peppers ( LOTS of different peppers thsi year!!); Being weeded and thriving is a huge Broccoli and transplanted Beet patch, sweet white Onions, Kale, Kolhrabi, etc,etc...**Picking strawberries, ordering new plants (our exsisting patch is two years old, time to get new); Peas in blossom, Green Beans thriving, Sweet Corn germinated and growing awesome, potato beetles 'mating' on potato plants and hanging out on every single Eggplant I have!! (soon to die via natural remedy called 'entrust') and the list goes on and on and on!!!! Fields look beautiful!  Always feel behind, but on a rainy day like today is when I have time to get organized! Ben and I still have a good feeling about this year! Time to catch up! Enjoy the harvest that is going to hit hard very, very soon!
