It has been a really great season here at Art, Fresh Produce & more as anticipated. Nice warm sunshine and plenty of rain has given us lots of beautiful vegetables. Praise God for a great year!
There have been some challenges such as soil fungus and weeds, weeds, weeds! But the Garden looks, I've been able to keep up with it this year despite also the challenge of being in "the family way" as they say.
Best selling vegetables this year were zucchini, red romaine, and bush beans. We have had a bumper crop of red cayenne, and jalapeno, Todd's favorite. Just starting to get our tomatoes. They will be available this week along with butternut squash. Yes, Fall is in the air. Cooler temps at night have brought on the broccoli heads and been good for second plantings of lettuce and cabbage. Beets are doing well and the arugula still has great color and flavor.
Many new accomplishments this year. The newly established herb garden has filled in nicely. Sage and mint and parsley plants have doubled in size. Cilantro went nuts. Basil went nuts, and the chives, oregano and rosemary, although not very big, look healthy and established. Also new this year is our Facebook page. Thank you everyone for all your likes and comments. It has been fun keeping you all updated, sharing pics and recipes and receiving orders through messaging.
Pretty soon we will be rolling out the pumpkins and bringing out the fall crafts. Most likely the last week of September. Hoping to finish a few paintings by then!
