Hi all: Sorry I've been a little lax in the blog department lately. I've been so busy growing the plants we want and trying to stop the ones we don't that I haven't had much time to take photos or type up a blog post. Today, Lizzie went for a day trip with Grammy and her cousins and I spent the day with Martin. We had a great time on the farm and made a delivery to Barrels Community Market in Waterville.
And now for some shots of some of the wonderful items available from our gardens at this time of year.
Red Saladbowl Lettuce
Provider Bush Beans
Costata Romanesco Zucchini
Sunburst Patty Pan Squash
This is one of the trial zucchini we're growing for Fedco Seeds. Green Tiger. It's really cool!
Blue Wind Broccoli
Red Russian Kale
White Russian Kale
Other than that I've been weeding in the evenings and trying to keep ahead of cultivating with the stir-up hoe in the afternoons when it's hot and the weeds don't stand a chance. Things are looking good in the garden. Keep your eye out for our email about this year's Parker Family Farm Annual Member Picnic. Details coming soon!
