This week on the market farm. And new items
Hay y'all. There's stuff happening fast this week. After last weeks frost damage its going to be plant plant and plant some more here s a list of what's going in we practice succession planting to have new stuff to pick all the time. Lots of green beans. Faba beans. More sweet corn. Some blue Hopi corn califlower. Beets and squash more summer more winter. Now with the summer squash. We pull the plants when they start getting huge cause the smaller plants can't produce a 20 lb zucchini in 2 days. If left unchecked. And no one wants to many of the huge ones. Another round of beets which will go in every week until mid July around here and. Some pickleing cucumbers. The dill is already growing. This is important to have fresh dill in your farmers market stand. When your pickleing cucumbers are ready... Sliceing cucumbers both green and white. And something that's all around cool sunflowers. We sell cut ones all summer. And pumpkin planting is going to be in full effect. We don't use machines hand planting with a garden hoe. This way I don't have to bend over for every hole. This is not as time comsuming as you wood think like lets say a half acre of the 3 sisters companion planting. Takes about 3 and a half hours for 1 person so 35 hours in the field you can get a lot done ......and we are pleased to announce that this weeks new seed items on the website are prize head lettuce. A nice green and red loose head type next. Red clover you can use it for sprouts or for green manure or salad greens. And the awesome snack right from the field and a wonder ful soil builder faba beans. And another heirloom heritage Indian corn the blue Hopi. Happy growing from the squash king.
