The farm is producing at at record levels this July. Winter squash is developing nicely and a bumper crop is expected.
A noticeable lack squash bugs so far and almost no Japanese beetles. Cucumber beetles are spreading disease and taking down the cucumbers, especially the picklers, so we are planting a new crop.
Blueberries are so bountiful that there is room for pick your own at half price by appointment only.
