Memorial Day Weekend Field Update
So, our weekend was pretty busy, how about yours? Based on the volume of the parking lot over the last week, I would guess you were hard at work on those gardens too. Thanks a lot for visiting us!
From our end of things, it is always amazing how much we get accomplished over the Memorial Day holiday. Since the hot hot heat of last week broke we have been pushing forward in the field.
We finally got our celery and cut flowers in the ground. We planted the heirloom and plum tomato crops, with some really exciting new/old varieties.
We started plowing more land for more corn. We cultivated and fed peas, beans, broccoli, just about everything. We began planting the cucumbers, earlier than usual.
Lee got the third crop of Temptation corn in the ground this afternoon, and the rest of us worked on lettuce, radish and spinach. Tomorrow we are nearly sure to get the pepper and eggplant crops in the ground, as long as the mechanical transplanter can keep up with us.
In addition to all of this we spent the better part of last week getting our irrigation system up and running again, being so warm and dry it seemed like the dead of summer for awhile. Now that is all set and the rain storms on Sunday left us nicely damp and undamaged by the ferocious hail that hit a lot of the area. Hopefully your gardens were equally as lucky. If you are hoping to catch us up to something out there in the field now is the time to keep your eyes peeled, there is always some kind of motion going on right now!
