8-30-14 Farm Update
End of the month update. We just did a big rhubarb harvest. Starting to get a little colder at night and looks like our season is rapidly approaching
The raspberries have been productive again this year and the new canes look really healthy. Should mean another great year next year.
Even with the late start the taters are looking good.
We've had a great supply of lettuce all summer and the beats are almost ready.
Even with only one pea fence we've gotten a great crop and the carrot tops are the largest I've ever seen in the garden.
This yellow wax chili pepper plant has done alright in the green house and the scotch bonnet is also doing pretty good.
Really sunny the morning I took these but the green beans have been producing like mad. I've probably put away over 5 pounds in the freezer and we are still regularly eating them with dinner.
Our three cherry tomatoes are doing good to and those tiny little tomatoes are oh so sweet.
We're also finally getting a nice crop of cucumbers. The variety this year is the Boston Pickling Cuchs and are very tasty, just not very big. Should have enough to make a few batches of pickles.
The yellow and green zuchs are also doing well as is some of our front yard cabbage
