The Old High Tunnel is Looking Good
We've been told that we need to come up with names for our high tunnel buildings. Maybe this Winter. In any event, the old building has some very nice looking crops in it right now. We harvested half of the golden beets and a portion of the carrots for our Thursday CSA and will harvest more for this coming Tuesday. The quality is pretty good, we think. The onions are starting to mature and there are some tomatoes beginning to ripen (mostly scouts, the bulk still has a while before it goes). We've harvested bell peppers once and the green beans multiple times.

No More Teen Paranormal Romance Novels on THIS Farm
We mentioned last year that we felt like most of the young adult novels nowadays have vampires in them. We're not entirely sure why that is, but we do know that if garlic repels vampires, we won't have much of a problem with them here.

Always Looks Best After a Weeding
Cooler weather has resulted in some slower development for some of our crops, such as the peppers. But, they look good enough and they'll produce at some level, if not a record pace.
