July crop report

Summer greens abound! The Red Russian Kale shows its glory in the early evening sunlight, while colorful Swiss Chard stalks glow nearby. This field radiates health.

Pick-your-own edible flowers are starting! My favorite is Borage, a small blue star-shaped flower that tastes like cucumber. There are also spicy nasturtiums & bright calendula.
And the peppers are not far off... I found a green pepper 5" long already!
These fields of broccoli were tilled in, along with the sugar snap peas, radishes, turnips, and spring greens. We are now approaching summer crops! (Are you ready for green beans?)
And the onions are sizing up really fast, because of all this rain we've been getting. They are delicious, too.
