The Rain Came Down and the Crops Came Up

The rain came down and the crops came up. God is good. We are going to have a bumper crop of southern peas. These pinkeye purple hulls are wonderful. We think they are far better than BVR or Quick Pick and certainly yield better. Harvest date should be July 28 or 29.

This year’s crop is absolutely outstanding. Better yet, it was done organically. We are not yet certified organic, but we made major strides this year. Our plan is based around cover crops and organic fertilizers based on sea kelp and bone meal. As we move forward we will continue to monitor our soil fertility and base our crop rotation on the needs of the soil. Our goal is the best soil health possible, producing healthy plants that resist predation from disease and bugs.

The results of our effort are a beautiful healthy crop. Please visit our farm photo album linked below. Anyone who thinks organic is puny and weak needs to see this.

We are not a CSA, we are a truck farm that sells locally to individuals and businesses. We like to attend the Dallas Farmers Market with our produce as well. We hope to be there the last weekend of July with fresh shelled product. We look forward to seeing all our friends there. Please make note of our Facebook page as well, become friends with us, and pass it along to your friends.
