Happy Friday, and happy harvest! After starting to pick our Gala this week, it efeels to me we have really kicked off apple harvest. Gala is a very important variety, and an absolutely excellent eating apple. So that brings our total up to 5 varieties so far: Gala, Jersey Mac, Paula Red, Zestar, and Ginger Gold. About 20 more to go!
This week I wanted to show off our “garden.” That’s what we call it at least. It may be a little larger than what most people consider a garden: about 7 acres. In our garden we have all of our melons, peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, and some beets. We do have other plantings of beets, pickles, sweet corn, and the summer broccoli a couple fields over. And our cauliflower, broccoli and cabbage is down the road on another property. We have a few gardens. Here are some pictures:
This is such a crazy time of year for me. Personally, I have just been working on selling our produce. I really haven’t been “growing” anything anymore, which I really miss. But I love working with my customers, and making people happy because of the beautiful produce I supply them.
Unfortunately that is all i have for this week. Come back next week for more apples and other farm news including our own farm to table dinner! As always, thanks for reading!
