August is a time when the juiciest crops are at their peak ripeness! The tomatoes are rolling in, the peppers are turning red fast, and the cucumbers are heavy on the vine.
Picking, picking, picking is mostly what we do!
In the next few weeks almost ten acres will be planted with winter cover crops-- rye, oats, and clover. These crops are not harvested, but are planted for the health of the soil, to be plowed into the ground as a kind of mulch or compost grown right in place. It's important work, as essential as planting the vegetable seeds themselves.
