Greetings to all from the LOCK FARM!
It is time for weeding and watering.
Above is a container of spring onions.
Below is a row of spinach plants.
Trays of candy onions get a watering from the hose..
Tomatoes in a container get watered automatically through a drip.
Spinach has an underground drip line.
While things seem to be bad all around the good news at the Lock Farm is that our crops are growing on schedule. It is our hope that all these will grow well and that we will have lots of fresh vegetables to serve the needs of our customers and the community.
Variety is the spice of life and Farmer John has put a lot of thought into choosing a super variety of vegetables for the Lock Farm this year.
Among the 25 varieties that arrived in this box are: woodpecker spinach, lunchbox peppers, slick pic squash, and watermelon radishes.
A new variety of beets is also included. It is a variety that are idea for cooking and canning–easy to cut into uniform slices.
