If you are so fortunate as to have a share of this seasons crop, onions and garlic are making an appearance this weekend
Today with beautiful bell pepper in hand, I had the 2 conversations that needed to be had to solidify the expansion of my growing operation. The fields for next season are going to expand roughly 66.67%, from just a bit over 1 acre, to all but 2. It is the next move in this adventure.
the rains came over the last week and the fields are exploding, the giant leaves of all of the great summer crops are taking in large amounts of glorious sunshine to produce delightful fruit, rewarding us for the love that we gave back.
Today we had buckets of rain and handfuls of zinnias.
Boy oh boy the fields have come alive. In no particular order, this week we’ve harvested carrots, beets, cucumbers, zucchini, summer squash, basil, lettuce, kale, swiss chard, turnips, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, basil, cilantro, zinnias, beans, peppers, onions and even a few tomatoes.

I’ve said it before and I’ll proclaim it again. I love growing food!
