A watched pot never boils.....
Well that is what it feels like.
Everything is loaded, but just not ready to pick yet. That snow in May really set us and everyone back this year. Hopefully next year we will have a high tunnel (plastic hoop house to extend the growing season) to grow our tomatoes and melons in.
We have some fun stuff this year that hopefully will be well received. Blue Tomatoes and other neat Heirlooms, Yellow Watermelons, White eggplant, Purple Tomatillos. All plants are really healthy and we are keeping control of the bugs for now. Whew....
|Our very first picking of Cherry Tomatoes! See the Blue "Indigo Rose"|
Really did not get where we wanted to be with our eggs. We started out with 32 chickens last year but since the hatchery sent the wrong ones we ended up with half roosters. We do intend to sell eggs at the market one day but we have so much going on right now its not feasible to get more chickens at this very moment. Maybe once the year winds down a bit we will look into it closer.
For now, here are some pictures of our garden. We feel much more organized this year but still MUCH room for improvement and practice. Still may be a year or so before we start a CSA or talk with restaurants but we are getting a groove to some extent.
