Ken has been working diligently. First, with the late spring, he has been planting so much in so short a time. Now he is weeding the perennials like garlic, raspberries, etc.
This has been a challenge to accomplish between rainfall. I love to walk out to the field and see him in action. Years of experience means he can go down a row more quickly than I can walk!
The field is looking great. The garlic was cultivated today, the raspberries,
and several annual crops were weeded and thinned - like the parsnips...
..and the beets crop On a sunny day the weeds dry up and die rather than rolling over and regrowing.
With the spring rains several crops look good at this point - like the grapes.
The pea plants are blooming. Peas like cool, damp weather , and so far the plants are doing really well.
Each season has its challenges and its rewards. It is exciting to watch it all unfold.
