Unfortunately, due to this spring’s record breaking rains we are low on available crops. So we will be taking a short break so the garden can catch up. Our next harvests should be

The good news is we are looking at the setup for our best tomato harvest in years! The plants haven’t looked this good, this early in years. The cucumbers, melons, and squash are all looking amazing. Even with the ridiculous rains this spring we’re looking forward to an excellent season. It’ll just be a little bit later than usual.

Thank you so much for your patience and support!

The big green ones in the lower left and upper right are transplants we put in this week. The itty bitty things in the upper left and lower right are our transplants we put in over a month ago! They actually got smaller over time. The rain was slowly killing them.
