Whats new at the farm

Most of the plants remain healthy and productive even after being harvested repeatedly. We are still harvesting from the kale, swiss chard, collard greens etc. and they remain healthy. However, we had to uproot the cucumbers, yellow squash, snap peas and string beans. Fortunately, they were all somewhat productive and produced some plants that we picked, gave to our clients and also ate ourselves. I guess some plants live and some plants die during the growing season. The garden is colorful and is nice to look at. Our baby watermelons are continuing to increase in size but since they are starting to spread into the herb garden we are planning to build a trellis to hold and contain it.
