Farming, Part II

Having gone to The Farm last Saturday and mostly weeded, I went again last Sunday and mostly harvested. Since I went again yesterday and might again today, I figured I better get the second post from last weekend up before the next visit happens. Could get confusing otherwise.

With the hot, dry weather, the peppers have been busting:


The cucumbers are enjoying the heat considerably less:


The onions are ready to come out. Farmer Tom started on that:


The potatoes look good, but except where they have come out of the ground during weeding, we aren't harvesting yet:


And they do need weeding:


No really:


Farmer Tom did some weeding in one potato bed, which is why you see some potatoes in this bin, which is mostly full of our very good onion crop:


Harvested a bunch of peppers, too:


Tomatoes look great, as you will see in posts from this weekend, as do the carrots. Lots happening on The Farm, Time to put in fall crops.
