Sunday - after the rain... and rain... and rain...

Wandered around the farm a bit this afternoon, just to see what things look like.

Here's what I saw ...

Lots of puddles,

lots of weeds - surrounding the new peach trees...

... and overtaking the sweet corn,

the cherries turning colour - yes, we're already eating them, and no, they don't taste very good yet.


and peaches.

Everything is growing incredibly fast right now. The hot, sunny weather we have had recently, together with a lot of rain has made for excellent growing conditions.

On this week's agenda:
- finish pruning peaches
- finish mulching tomatoes
- stake tomatoes and sucker & tie them
- weed, weed, and then weed
- seed, seed, and then seed - the ground is so wet now that we are behind in our    vegetable seeding
- begin the 4th of our weekly farmers' markets - Saturday is opening day at Georgetown.

But today is Sunday - a day to rest. And that's where I'm going!

  1. I would like to know if and when the Bing Cherry is ready to harvest? Do you travel to a Local market with your fruit and produce? can you tell us when crops peaches plums apricots etc are ready? We live in Keswick Ont and would like to make a day trip to your area of Grimsby and surrounding area. Thanks R. White
