Monthly Archive: July 2009
We received some much needed rain this past weekend and fortunately the hailstorms that were about missed us this time.
The ground is still quite dry, which is good for digging potatoes but not for much else.
We have been busy putting up trellis for tomatoes and for many people’s favorite, the Rattlesnake pole bean. (more…)
The continued dry spell enabled us to get somewhat caught up on the work we fell behind with during the monsoon. Unfortunately we are now falling behind on the planting and some of the other tasks normal to mid-July, such as tying up the tomatoes and harvesting the onions.
We have finished harvesting the garlic and it is hung up to cure. The harvest looks good with good size bulbs and not much problem with rot. It will be in the share again in two or three weeks. (more…)
Another recipe from the “Simply Organic” cookbook. (more…)
