Tales from the Bramble

Things have been going great on the farm.  My squash and zucchinis have been producing so much I've made some friends very happy.  We've already put away a couple pounds of green beans and I have two huge bags of peas that need to be shucked.  The greens bed is still putting out more than we can eat and who knows maybe we'll get a few cucumbers here this month.  

The raspberry bramble is also finally starting to mature.  This is a picture of the first ripe raspberry.  I ate it, I did not share and it was delicious.  The bramble looks like it's going to put out gallons this year.  I had some great looking 1st year canes last year and they didn't disappoint this year.  I also loaded up the bramble with all the compost I'd been cooking.

That's it from the farm, I'll have a full update this weekend.

Into July -----> Farm Update

Well we are well into July and everything is going gangbusters around the farm.  All the zuchs and other Squash are doing fine.

 The peas and carrots and the greens bed.
 Still a week or two away from harvesting raspberries, but there will be gallons judging from how many flowers we've had.  The bees have been hard at work on the bramble.

 The yellow zucchini is producing very well.
 Inside the greenhouse it's a jungle with green beans taking over most of the space and cucumbers coming on strong.

Christa planted some flowers on the lower part of the front beds when none of the cabbage survived, but the upper level has some nice healthy cabbage.

Should be harvesting peas soon, and I've started taking a few long beans.  Raspberries and squash should be ready soon and I think I'm going to have to replant my lettuce as most of it has bolted already with the long warm sunny days.
