Well, it took five plantings of carrots, but they have finally arrived! They look and taste great!
It’s been a very busy time for us as the ground has finally dried out and is workable. Many of the beds have been tilled and replanted with different crops. We have new plantings of green beans, carrots, red beets, green onions, french breakfast radishes, sugar snap peas, yellow squash, zucchini, and lettuce mix all in the ground and growing. There are transplants of broccoli, kale, turnips, purple kohlrabi, gold beets, and cucumbers waiting to go into the garden.
We have come to accept that almost all of our tomato plants and corn are dead from the flooding we experienced in June and the first half of July. We have a few cherry tomato plants still alive, and 3 or 4 of the slicing varieties, but we will not be able to bring any significant amount of tomatoes to market this season.
We will be at the Alta West Farmers’ Market tomorrow, July 27th. We will have everything we had last week as well as Nelson Carrots. (The onions will be ready next week.) A few of our Revolution green bell peppers will make their first appearance of the season tomorrow as well, stop by early if you want any of those!
