We returned to the Micro-Farm a week ago. Reflecting back over the week it is hard to believe such a short period of time could be so full. A quick survey around the Micro-Farm I realized I needed to harvest strawberries. Little did I realize that we would pick six quarts of berries. I quickly thought about what to do with all the berries.
While I was away there was still gardening work to be done. I was able to help my parents put their garden in.
While I was gone I think the weeds were the most successful crop I grew. Unfortunately, I was not able to get into the garden beds much last week . I was only able to start weeding today.
A quick picture tour of the Micro-Farm will show you how well things are going.
This week I will try to catch up with the weeds. Strawberries and peas will be harvested. The garlic scapes will need to be cut off before the flowers open. If you allow the garlic to flower it will not turn into garlic bulbs that I want.
I also need to start thinking about what to plant near July 4th for a fall crop.
Enjoy this season, learn from last season, and look forward to next season.
