Catching up in the field.

June 1, 2009

You might remember just two weeks ago I was showing you the status of our early corn here. Well as promised, things have changed. We peeled back the heat covers on the crop this morning, except for the portion last nights wind had already managed for us. Things look good, a little deer damage, a few broken and wind battered cornstalks, but for the most part we are looking at blue skies and knee (or at least shin) high dark green corn!corn being uncovered @ greenwaysEarly Temptation

Also, remember those tomato tunnels? Well, they are doing well too. Green stocky plants seem to have pulled through the tough spell they were in last week and have caught hold and will soon be pushing against their plastic ceilings.early girls under wraps

Check in again at the end of the week, I’ll try and give a clearer picture regarding Saturday’s produce offerings. Pretty sure spinach, radishes, beet greens, and some lettuces are guaranteed. Going to have to play strawberries and peas by ear, but we certainly aren’t far off.

    This is one of THE best ideas EVER…
    I’m sure that parents of young children are grateful for this up-front look at just where and how the veggies are planted, how they grow [or tread water, as the weather dictates] – and how they get from seed packet to field to farm-stand. SOMEDAY [when the rain stops, IF & when], perhaps there could be some form of video – incorporating the blog – playing in a quieter corner for Volante customers who do not have a PC – it really is a great presentation!
