Trying to Stay Positive

Trying to put a field of spoiled hay to good use, we mulched our late tomatoes with some of it yesterday.

Lydia, our summer intern, did a lot of the work.

We’ve enjoyed having her on the farm this week and she’s fit right in.

This has been a near disastrous year for growing vegetables around here.  Last year we couldn’t find markets for all of our produce.  This year we’re having to say no to people nearly every day.  We didn’t even go to the farmer’s market this week, as we are barely producing enough to fill our CSA shares.   It’s by far the worst year for gardening that I can recall.

But I’m trying to stay positive.  The okra is starting to come in.

And the sweet corn will be ready next week.

That is, if the the raccoons haven’t eaten it all by then.  Sigh.

Farm living…
