What's Happening On The Farm?

All is well here on the farm. We have been anxiously waiting for the tomatoes to ripen. Later than usual, but at last they have began. Our garlic and onion crops turned out nice and are in the finishing stages of drying. Our fall broccoli crop ripened earlier than we had expected but it has been tasty! And again this year we planted about 200 eggplants and are only getting a few. Many plants blossom, but due to weather sensitivity never fruit. This is definitely one of our most challenging crops. However, the melons are looking great and we will be excited to share them with you over the next few weeks.
