On The Farm- June 28th
The sun is back, feeding our early crops, giving their slow growth a much needed boost. It slowly pulls moisture from the soil, until it is dry enough for the tractor or tiller to pass through. This week unplanted ground will be turned, sod flipped. While carrots size up and bees pollinate summer squash, rye and clover will die back, making way for fall crops to be seeded and transplanted. Collards mature and are harvested. First plantings of salad mix and spinach have gone to seed and are turned in, always moving into the next phase, the next planting.
