Harvest Update: Mid July

Spent a wonderful morning at the farm harvesting food.  Pulled a few weeds, examined the raccoon damage and walked the 53 hills of winter squash.

Here is the garden in May:

And the garden now:

We found out that it was raccoons eating our sweet corn not the groundhogs:

But don't think for one second that these groundhogs are nice to the garden....

** So far we are eating tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, cabbage, potatoes, peaches, green beans, and peas.

This weekend the bean plants were removed because the Mexican Bean Beetle has been munching away and we are trying to decrease the spread and population.  We are looking into a beneficial wasp that will eat these beetles then do not overwinter.  Maybe that will save our second crop of beans....

I have many dreams of tomato recipes this year, hopefully some will come into fruition and I can share them here.

Hope you are enjoying the food of summer!  

I wish you enough!
