Still, we do manage to take some pictures that show the progression of how things change at the farm. And, even more rare, we sometimes put out a blog post that shows some of the progressions and we often remember to give them the label before and after.
The Raised Bed does its job!
A few years back we had another wet Spring and one of our responses was to put in a few raised beds so we could manage to plant SOMETHING. Well, we've had a few wet Spring/Summer/Falls since that time, but these raised beds are still there. Well, two of three are. Two have been upgraded to corrugated steel sides. The third has yet to have that treatment.

We used one of the raised beds to get some more lettuce into the ground when things were still way to wet in June to plant elsewhere (except the high tunnels). About 100 heirloom lettuce plants were transplanted in.

Casa Verde and its occupants
If you have kept up with our blog, you have seen the construction progress of Casa Verde - Home of Plantlings.

The Age-Old Question: Will the Genuine Faux Farm get decent taters this year?
It certainly will not be without trying and putting our best efforts forward.

When you live in a construction zone, it is tempting to say:
1. You've always lived in that construction zone and,
2. It will never get done / no progress is being made.

The good news? July has lots of days left in it. Let's see how far we can get on some of these before we get to August!
