Spent some time on The Farm this weekend

I went to The Farm Saturday, and found there was some maintenance to do, plus a little remunerative activity, as well. A check on the status of crops found things looking pretty good. The new spuds bed is flourishing:


The squash and zukes likewise are looking good (still):


The peas were flourishing and in need of harvest:


The peppers could be doing better. I blame Farmer Tom:


The beans look great and are flowering. I take full credit:


The carrots likewise look good. Had to thin them some, but the future's so bright, I have to wear shades:


I'm, sorry, did I say that? Timbuk3 said it first:


On the other hand, those guys did nothing to help with The Farm, so we'll leave them behind. Looks like the garlic needs a bunch of weeding, too:


The maters look good:


Flowering, y'all:


The onions bed was clearly in need of major weeding:


So, I weeded that shit:


Fucking near killed me. It was about a million degrees with a bazillion percent humidity. Probably lost 5 pounds weeding those onions. Alas, it all came back with the beer I drank to recover from my weeding experience. Anyway, it broke me so bad, the garlic remains unweeded. Fortunately, Farmer Tom harvested some peas:


Lots more still on the vine, getting ripe:


Wound up with about a quart. I'll probably use mine fresh. Canning in the future:


Next week, I have to weed the garlic. I planted a couple cuke plants to turn into pickles, so we will track their progress, as well.
