As you would expect, we mostly grow what is in season. But, sometimes, as fate may have it,
we end up growing stuff that you might not normally find at a particular time of year. This page is to
give you an idea of what we have at any given time. The pictures below are representative of the products
we will be selling at the market.

I have not been keeping up with this I admit but the garden has lagged under my hand as well. So, there has not been that much to write about, or for that matter to sell either. Lately, it has been okra, and Italian peppers daily. On a longer time frame there are a few tomatoes and zucchini. I had my only watermelon slpit on me this week due too much rain, can you imagine that?! All the canteloupe didn't make it past the varmits and lack of water in July/August. On a bright side, the kale and collards that survived from the Spring are coming back. I lost the Ancho peppers to neglect and heat except for 1 or 2.

I am beset with an excess of tomatoes. Mostly Cherokee purple, but some of the red ones are starting to ripen as well. And this does not seem to be letting up. Beans anad squash seem to be slowing down, but I am fertilizing today and have been trying to get more water out there as well.

We are in the height of tomato season! Yay! My job now is to keep all those potential lucious darlings alive and well until they are ready to pick. So, in need of trellises on 200 ft or so of tomato row, I have decided to try a new method, well new to me anyway. Today I will be constructing the trellises and in subsequent days tying up the tomato plants. We are still producing zucchini, okra and green beans, althought there appears to be a slow down in squash and beans. Approaching time for fall planting so I have another bed and a half ready to go. We'll see. This is the largest tomato I believe I have ever grown weighing in at 1.54 lbs.
