Updates the Farm

Early spring pruning has come to an end. Neatly stacked piles of fruit tree branches in the orchards have been cleared away - a true sign that the bounties from winter's work will be here soon.

Planting and irrigating are well underway. The greenhouses are filling up with tomato plants that were started in March. Earlier tomato plants have flowered, a satisfying signal that the fruit will be ready in less than 6 weeks. Strawberry fields and blueberry patches are now in full bloom; early strawberry varieties will be ready in 3-4 weeks and early blueberry varieties will follow in early July. Raspberry and blackberry bushes are looking strong as well. The hens have started laying and the honey bees from our hives are out and about doing the hard work we need them to do. Onions, beets, kohlrabi, potatoes, watermelon, cantaloupe, squash, cucumbers, peppers, eggplant, carrots are tucked nicely into the earth. Our 10,000 fruit trees will all be getting hand thinned in the coming weeks. Peach trees first followed by apple trees. Removing excess fruit improves fruit size and quality while keeping the tree healthy and strong. 

Our own spinach, honey, jam, hard cider and eggs are available in the farm store now. Scallions, mesclun and radishes will begin late next week. Rhubarb, strawberries and herbs will follow in mid June. By late June/early July, the variety will be diverse and plentiful. Everything is subject to sunshine and temperature.
