On the farm this week: We got all our tomatoes planted this past week and are ready for cucumbers and peppers to go in soon! We put 12 week old tomatoes in the ground in may and typically have our first harvest around 4th of July. They are all planted in our movable tunnels and will be trellised up to the rafters so they can grow tall and we can access all the fruit easily. For me this officially marks the end of frost season and we are in full summer planting mode.
