The Almost July field report!

Well, it's still raining and staying soggy out there.  As much as we'd like to have all our fall crops planted - they are not.  Dries up enough to just get out there and then it dumps down again!  Then with the cool night temperatures our patty pan zucchini just stopped growing! So, now we have to wait for this patch to start kicking out again! And just when everyone starts to enjoy them too! Before much longer we'll have tons and everyone will be sick of them!
But PEAS!  They are in full swing and our patch will be last for 2-3 weeks. We've got sweet, sweet 'worth the work' shelling garden type and the edible pod sugar snaps. Both are worth picking up and savoring this time of year!
Just starting this first week in July are our heirloom tomatoes and fresh dug potatoes
A new variety..so so so good!
The smell of the soil is so awesome digging up the first tasty spuds of the year! 
Me and my boy. He's the sweetest, happiest little farm bugger!  On the move now, keeping us all busy!  Eating solids now, enjoying the best of the seasons along with us. Just shy of 8 months old already.  And he gets along with his sister not too bad! I couldn't ask for anything more. 
See everyone at market soon!
