As the growing season progresses, I thought that I might let everyone know exactly whats been going on “down on the farm”. Our latest excitement is over our bees. Honey has been harvested and will be available by the end of the week. We have tasted it and it is AMAZING! It was so delicious that it made us almost involuntarily bake a batch of biscuits on Sunday.
The cool season vegetables are being harvested. Broccoli, Cabbage, Greens, Peas, Lettuce and Garlic have produced nicely. As the summer heat sets in, these plants will slow and eventually stop producing. They will then in August be replaced by their Fall counterparts.
Summer means SQUASH here at Sinking Creek Farm. We are growing several varieties and all are doing great. Tomatoes are kicking as well as beans, peas and onions, just to name a few. Our corn is almost waist high and looks great! We are so excited, as we start to see the results from all our hard work. Planting is tough, but when you harvest those wonderful veggies, it’s all worth it!
As the Summer continues we will start to harvest our potatoes, parsnips and continue to harvest carrots and other root vegetables. Oh, and don’t forget Sunflowers. In just a few short weeks the Farm will explode with color, as the hundreds of Sunflowers come into bloom.
