It feels like the tipping point has been reached this season, when, instead of coaxing the plants along, we are running to keep up! We harvested garlic (just enough for the homestead):
The flowers are starting to open... bouquets are in our future!
The first planting of sweet corn is well on its way, despite onslaughts from crows, blue jays, and one wayward cow.
Did I mention we have cows now? They actually belong to another local farmer, and are helping manage our long-neglected pastures. Thankfully, they seem to like our many varieties of thistle.
The weather has cooled quite a bit in the last few days. Morning fog season has begun. This is really great for our salad and cooking greens, not so great for the warm-weather crops, and a huge relief for one eight-month pregnant farmer!
