Summer is just a few days away

June 15, 2009

The signs are starting to show. We have almost finished picking out first crop of lettuce, with the next coming along nicely. The rain of the past week has been just what we needed, now the temps just need to catch up! We have brought in baby bok choi and some nice large beets over the past few days. The strawberries are pretty steady, and as long as they are dry and we can keep the varmints away we’ll have plenty for sale. The break in local peas is going to end shortly, and we should have homegrown ones steadily for several more weeks once they start up again.

This young deer visited our strawberry patch 3 times in one day, that we could see. It seems pretty content to stop and eat a few even as we attempt to chase it back into the woods.

Although it has been raining a lot lately, every once in a while the sky clears up and gives us an afternoon like this. Peas and beans stretch out and soak in some sunlight between the blueberries and greenhouse.

In other big news, as promised, homegrown zucchini and summer squash is here. Well, beginning to form at least. We have plenty of hot dog sized zucchinis on the plants in the field, that with one good warm sunny day will be swelling quick. I was able to find a precious few eight-ball and cousa squash there today, which were naturally sold out within moments, but we will certainly start having them more abundantly and daily soon.

It might only be a handful, but real summer vegetables are here!
