During the winter, Farmer Dean plans the layout of the fields and rotation of the crops, seed and other farm inputs are purchased. Field prep begins, cover crops are tilled into the soil and planting beds are shaped. In April, onions and carrots and the first planting of corn are planted. Through the month of May, more corn is planted, the garden vegetables and potatoes are put into the ground. Pinto beans and more corn through the month of June. The last planting of corn just went into the ground two days ago. Delayed somewhat due to a good rain storm. Right now, most of our time is invested in cultivation, weeding, fertilizing, scouting for pests/disease and watching the crops grow.
The first planting of corn is almost ready! Summer squash, lettuce, beets and bell peppers are ready for harvest.
The Farm Market will open Wednesday, July 25th, 2012. Keep an eye on the site to see when the corn harvest will begin and where you can find our produce. We look forward to seeing you!
