Summer Update

The good news is we did not have to water this year and have some speciality crops such as swiss chard, okra, pumpkins and peppers.  The wet weather has had a negative impact on the tomatoes, late blight, squash-powdery mildew, and rotten vegetables sitting in moist conditions.  

Apples are early this year.   We have some pie varieties, now. 

Late planted lettuce was planted the end of July.  I planted beans yesterday,  I am continuing to replant vegetables for fall.  

I attended a workshop on high tunnels.  A high tunnel is a unheated greenhouse.   You plant your garden earlier and late summer for late fall crops.  If managed right, you get 10 months of vegetables.  I would need to expand my customer base and charge more to cover cost of the high tunnel.
