Tales from the Back 40

Late Spring

Rain is good!!  But rain can also keep you from tasks.  This blessing of rain a few weeks ago, kept us from getting out ahead of the weeds and I missed a seed sowing date. But things are going pretty good. We got through last week's heatwave and are preparing for the next one. Dear hubby has the sprinklers in working order. Right now our squash, cukes, cantelope and watermelon plants are lost in the weeds.  But dear hubby is taking the week off and should be following up on some of those things. Tomatoes should have been staked, so that should be taken care of too.  School is out so we are transitioning from the school day to the farm day.

The CSA is full for the year. We began back in early May with strawberries and greens. Last week, was the last week for our berries and the greens are beginning to look a little raggedy.  Squash and cukes are coming in, followed by cherry tomatoes soon.
