I've been sitting on this Farm post for several weeks

It was nearly three weeks ago that I got back to The Farm. It actually was my usual weekly visit, but some major life events intervened, and so I am only posting about it now. This visit was not 3 days ago, nor 10 days ago, it was 17 days ago. Things looked pretty good. The tomatoes were coming in nicely:

The various herbs were doing well:

The old potato bed was coming up well:

The squash and zucchini were getting started:

Even the new potato bed was coming in nicely:

As were the beans:

We put in peppers, and they were looking good:

OK, the lettuce as getting a little unruly:

As were the radishes:

So I harvested a bunch of radishes:

They had been planted close, but not thinned. I blame Farmer Tom for this. In any event, I harvested and thinned:

I'm not sure how much it helped. The garlic clearly was enjoying the full-sun location, though:

We also put out some bug traps to protect the beans. They catch a LOT of bugs:

Just don't put them too close to the plants you want to protect -- they attract bugs, after all.

So 2-1/2 weeks ago was a fairly uneventful Farm visit. I missed the next week for reasons that will become clear shortly, and the visit a few days ago revealed a serious lack of attention to our crops. Stay tuned.
