This is an exciting time of year to be a gardener. It is when all of the planning, early mornings, late nights, and physical labor from winter and spring surface with full garden beds of ripening cantaloupe, watermelon, okra, green beans, hot peppers, tomatoes and more zucchinis than you can count. It is a glorious time of year (minus the swarms of mosquitos that this region is host to).
Our first growing season on the farm has gone surprisingly well. We have been able to grow a wider variety of foods this season and supply 7 families with organic vegetables. Not to mention our eating habits have become much more healthy. The gratification of seeing a tiny seed turn into something delicious on your plate is amazing.
