It’s been a SUPER hot week! We’ve been picking tomatoes, summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, peppers, okra & eggplant for hours every day. Not much time for doing other tasks like seeding fall crops, planting the many crops we have in the greenhouse that are ready to go out, or tackling the weeds that are growing in the fields. Hopefully once the heat breaks we’ll be able to play catch up!
We did catch a glimpse of this beautiful Garter Snake in the tomato patch last week. I’m so, glad to have such wonderful helpful critters on the farm!
