Farm Happenings for July 8, 2020

Posted on July 3rd, 2020 by Mike Finger

The farm has really moved into warp drive in the past week.  We are sowing, planting, weeding, building trellises, hoeing and hand weeding, and harvesting an ever larger selection of crops. The frequent wet spells have been mostly beneficial for the crops, but a bit thwarting to the farmers.  Wet soil does not work very well, so bed prep has been slowed and even when completed, the results are not optimal.  Weed control is especially compromised by wet conditions.  About the best we can manage is to push the emerging weeds around a bit, which puts them off their game for a day or two before they find their roots again and renew growth.
