Hello!
We've been very busy on the farm and thankful June is here, because that means May is over!  May is our most frantic month.  All the early crops planted in March come racing in ready to be harvested in short order.  The early tomato and pepper plantings now need staking, trellising and pruning. And then another planting of tomato, pepper and other summer crop transplants have to get in the ground quickly if we're going to have these veggies mid-summer.  The weeds that hardly looked threatening in April now loom large. Finally, our large plantings of onions and garlic are ready to be harvested and cured in the barn.  Once all of these May, early June activities are behind us we enter the summer mode of less frequent plantings, routine harvesting, cultivating weeds and making preparations for our fall crops.   Never a dull moment on the farm.  But welcome June, it's nice to see you!
