Crops report for June 9th, 2015

Posted 6/8/2015 11:00pm by Peter & Bernadette Seely.

Lots of tomatoes are forming on the tomato plants in the greenhouse. Though virtually all of them are small and still growing, and bright green, at least a few of the cherry tomatoes are beginning to turn red, so we can look forward to their first harvests only weeks away, and not months! After of a few years of poor strawberry harvests, we planted some strawberry plants on our new land, with the hopes of regaining the quality and yield of strawberries that we have had in the past, but alas, the plants are a bit harder to care for when further away from our home, and grazing deer have done a lot of damage to them as well, so there will be few strawberries to harvest this season. We planted a bunch of new plants, though, this spring, which gives us the chance of getting lots of berries next year. (Time enough to get a fence up as well!) Most of our winter squash, potatoes, and sweet potatoes are still to be planted, though our fields are fuller at this time of year than anytime in recent memory! Lots of sweet corn, summer squash, and green beans are planted — we are very unlikely to have a shortage of any of them this year! And hopefully all threats of frosts are a distant memory from this point on!
