Summer is in full swing here on the farm. Crops are getting tall; roosters are getting fat, and the garden has sped into that uber productive phase of mid-summer. We recently arrived at the "if we don't grow it, we don't eat it" point of no return. Goodbye, supermarket produce!
And mostly it has been a good summer. Sure, some crops fail, but far more are succeeding. We tried to grow some new varieties this year. I couldn't resist the name of this lettuce in the seed catalogue: Drunken Woman! Isn't she lovely? Tasty, too. Not quite sure how she got the name, though.
Here are a few more garden photos to whet your appetite.
