End of Spring Garden Update

Posted by Sumner, Garden Manager

As summer comes in full force let’s have a quick photo tour of some of our garden so far this year. We have Indian Runner ducks in the Lower Garden for their superior foraging abilities and we hope to get some decent eggs from them.

The ducks in the second week of June, they grow fast!

The first week of June we were harvesting delicious early slicer variety tomatoes from our high tunnel. It also has produced a huge amount of early broccoli and zucchini. Just this past week sweet peppers have been coming in.

Garlic is currently being harvested and cured and we just finished getting all the watermelons and musk melon rows prepared. This has already been a record harvest year for many crops and we think that is likely to continue. Thanks to everyone who has helped out!
