Well! It has been quite the week and weekend. Procter Center held a Food and Faith conference, bringing together many people interested in making a difference in their communities and lives. We had a wonderful weekend of education, conversation, sharing, and learning. Thanks to all who participated!
The farm is certainly picking up in both the amount of planting that happens each week and the amount of weeding and irrigating that is needed. I have planted the first round of cucumbers and summer squash as well as some tomatoes. All are doing fine despite how early in the year it is. Even with the low temperatures at night the plants are continuing to grow. Peppers and Eggplant are going to be planted on Sunday (gotta get them in the ground before the rain!)
Starting next week there will be enough ready veggies for harvest and sale. Keep an eye out on the main page for the opportunity to place orders for and pre-pay for your Procter Farm veggies. The kitchen at Procter will also be serving these first fruits of the farm.
