Turn up the heat and turn on the irrigation! This beautiful summer weather is helping to get our crops growing in the fields. We just finished transplanting baby watermelons and more summer greens. The corn is getting taller by the day! Yes, there's sweet corn coming to your CSA shares this year! It's a tough crop to grow organically, but Farmer Matt has made it one of his top priorities to grow it for you this season. Can't wait!
Irrigating our newly transplanted baby watermelons using a boom irrigation system that moves through the fields on a timer.
Our soil is so sandy that it doesn't hold water for long. Regular irrigation is necessary during dry periods like we've been experiencing.
As the saying goes, sweet corn should be "knee high by the fourth of July!" Ours is actually going to be waist high by then! Coming soon...
