And just like that June is here! We are extremely busy on the farm this time of the year, more so than normal as mother nature has kept us in a dry pattern. Even though we picked up some light showers last weekend, the below average levels have put us in a spot that we must start irrigation earlier than normal. Naturally, as we turn on our irrigation well the Starter takes a dump and we are on hold until it comes in. It should be in this weekend, fingers crossed.
We made a bunch of straw and hay this week. I brought back to life some of my grandfathers equipment that have not been used since 1986. Yes, it may be rusty but with a little TLC I got them back up to working condition.
Strawberries are coming in! They are small and yields are low because of the lack of rain and cool nights. Hopefully in a week or 2 they shape up into the big juicy Long Island Strawberries we all love.
Exciting news; new batch of cattle arrive at our farm this week. We are excited to welcome them back!
Enjoy this cooler temp weekend!
