Farming catch-up

Went farming a couple weeks ago and am just now getting the pictures up. Yeah, call me a slacker.

Anyway, Farmer Tom finally relented, and we put some corn in the bed where we harvested potatoes a few weeks ago. That corn is up:


The tomatoes are doing great. We just have to keep the deer away. Bambi must die:


We have four staggered bean crops in, planted a week or two apart. The first bean crop is doing well:


More been crops follow:


Against all odds, the kale and Swiss chard are enduring the summer heat and still producing:


And the okra looks good:


Lots of pods forming:


Busting it, as you can see:


The peppers are starting to produce:


We put in pole beans a bit ago, and they are getting ready to climb:


Squash seems to be getting ready:


Farmer Tom put in a number of sunflower plants, which have survived deer attacks and are approaching seed-readiness:


Did I mention the tomatoes are doing OK? Good, because they are:


Harvested some squash and zukes. Bread coming:


Also harvested some onions. Got red, white and yellow in there:


All in all, The Farm is doing well so far this summer. We'll see how things go from here.
