Hi Folks, things got crazy busy on the farm and between the work, heat and a few days off being sick, i have been off my writing game..
But i have photos for you and a video or two to share..
Peas do not bolt lol but they do react to the heat, thankfully they are still holding well..
We are taking off our first cherry tomato’s for the house now.. the first bean rows are climbing well and in bloom now. The broad beans are in full bloom as well. The second pea planting is two weeks behind these ones.
Potatoes doing well. spring greens are done and radishes are in bloom now. The Bean Teepee beans are starting to put out climber vines now and the strings are on the bottom row but no flowers yet, however the peppers are producing
photo from last week.. will get a new one this week 🙂 got the center mowed and cleaned up, the edging got done and so it will hold any rain there giving it more time to sink into the ground.
The fruits are mixed, red currents excellent, black currents poor, strawberries are getting close to done, we have put up 66 cups of sliced sugared prepped ready to go strawberries into the freezer.. apples look good the black chokeberry is loaded as is the high bush cranberry and elderflowers clusters show great promise for their size this year but the winner this year is the raspberries
Never seen them loaded like this before but we need rain to make the crop come though!
We have new clutches of chicks, new ducklings hstched, we have new rabbit kits born and we have new cross fencing up. Bojangle’s figures this line is a hot line and he staying far back in case he is right. We now have fencing up on those posts but we still have more to do yet on this project.
Well, i had better get back to it.. Everyone have a great day!
