Cucumbers are here, and boy are they producing! Squash starting to come in as well, and we should start to see some peppers and eggplant in a few weeks.

The first planting of squash is starting to bloom, although not all of it looks this great, we had some plants that didn't like those high winds last week!

I am hoping we will still have them... read more »

Blueberry bushes have started to bloom and the bees are in them thick, doing what they do best. There is a bumble bee in the picture if you look close, it was hard to capture with the 20-30mph gust but I did my best! Hoping everything doesn't get too beat up in this wind. Planting more this week, seeding... read more »
