On the farm:
Mid August already and we are still planting a few items for fall and winter. Everybody is working hard to harvest, prep (drying and cleaning onions and garlic), we are also starting to make pickles and other value added products. We are at peak harvest now and things like watermelons and melons will be done. The heat compressed the melon season, for example, from our normal 6 weeks to about 3-4 weeks.; Other effected crops include eggplants, peppers, and greens. Enjoy the variety now while it is here.
