The past week has brought back memories of 2009—rain, rain, and more rain!
While we did need a good soaking, we got a lot more, so we’re hoping the weather pattern changes in the coming week
Sweet Potato Slips planted
Our storage cabbage, cauliflower, fall carrots and beets were all planted as the drops of rain began on Saturday morning.
We hope to finish mulching our peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes this week, and then we’ll just wait for the sun to come out again!
Our tomato crop (knock on wood) looks great, and we will begin the tedious job of staking and trellising this week as well.
While the veggies do need the water, they also need the heat, and so do we. We are hoping that the fields dry up enough so we can cultivate the crops with our tractors, and then get in there with hoes, knives, and hands, and kill those weeds!
Plenty of work to do….Enjoy the veggies, Chris
