Tuesday At The Farm

Despite the unseasonable cool weather we have been having, not to mention all the rain, things are progressing, however slowly, here on the farm. Today saw several hours of cleaning up weeds, turning soil, planting onion and beet seedlings, planting Swiss chard, kale, collard, spinach, and Brussels sprout seeds. Have a look.

Twenty eight Roma tomato plants at various stages of development.

Some have even started to flower

Forty feet of three kinds of potatoes seem to be doing very well.

Garden two.

Carrots are coming along.

Three types of squash ready to take over.

Chamomile flowers.

Garlic neck.

Cucumbers ready to start climbing.

Sugar snap peas on the vine...

...and in the bowl.

Green beans climbing and flowers about to fruit.

Broccoli coming up.
