This is just a sampling of our harvest so far and some of the general goals we set for ourselves for production.
|Not a bumper crop of tomatoes this year, but enough.|
But, what does this mean?
It continues to confirm that longer season crops continue to be difficult with extreme weather conditions. On the other hand, multiple succession plantings of shorter season crops (and even some longer season crops) results in enough success to be able to meet obligations. If the weather does something to take out one succession (like the first succession of cucumbers, zucchini and summer squash), another succession may well hit a 'good' window of opportunity.
|Our Fall radishes are making up for Spring shortfalls.|
|A recently transplanted eggplant (June)|
All in all, we won't be crowing about record setting production this year, but we won't be doing much crying either. It has been, and continues to be, a perfectly acceptable year for crop yields. We'll build on this and aim for an even better year next season!
