We had a very productive week on the farm. Our tomatoe crops are loaded with fruit. We are finally picking tomatoes twice a week from our main tomato greenhouse. We also have them in our larger high tunnel, and planted in the garden beds, so we expect to have a lot of tomatoes this year. We also started harvesting our spring carrot crop this week, which are tasty and tender. We’re starting to tip into the time of year where we spend more time harvesting than transplanting and weeding, which is encouraging. This time of year we’re harvesting tomatoes, cucumbers, summer squash, and beans multiple times a week, and every year we get better at balancing our crops. We hope you all enjoy your produce, and have a great week!
