What’s going on at the farm: Harvest season is in full swing yet and we are looking forward to finishing up the season as strong as possible as we enter the last third of the year. Our annual potluck was being planned for this next weekend but it has been so busy around here we are thinking of backing it up to early September the weekend after labor day weekend on September 8th. This will give us more time to get through all the planting and plowing and mowing that has been going on here this week and put us about a month out from the end of the 2012 season. Harvesting has kept us the most busy by far this week picking cherry tomatoes, green beans, and peppers. We topped our fall storage onions this week and they are all cured and ready for storage. Lot’s of plowing and seed bed preperation planned for this week as we plant lettuce, arugula, radish, turnips, and more for late season.
