Beautiful Indigo Cherry Drop tomatoes, packed with anthocyanin, a powerful antioxidant. And they taste great!Next PostWhen your healthy yellow squash plants start having the baby squashes swivel and rot, you got a fungus. Time to break out the neem oil. Neem is a natural, organic product from the neem tree. You Might Also Like Welcome to August….. Wait…. JUNE?!?! June 4, 2019 What’s happening down on the farm with this virus threatening, gatherings canceled and physical set-up farmer’s markets in limbo? We are all unclear on what the future holds. So the question arises, do I continue with “the Plan” for planting, scale back or ramp up? For today I am continuing “the Plan”. That means squash and cucumber seeds went in the ground this week. The 2nd round of potatoes (both fingerling and new potatoes) will be planted today. There are transplants in the greenhouse. Tomatoes and fish peppers are ready to get planted. Eggplants and more peppers in a couple of weeks along with several new to me Asian greens that are quick growing and sound delicious. Some Asian greens are already growing in the aquaponics beds, should be ready in a few weeks. Squash should start making in 45 days (give or take). Cukes take a couple weeks longer. Greens should come in sooner (I think). Other things currently growing in the ground but not ready for harvest are leeks, garlic, onions, radishes and sugar snap peas. Also part of “the Plan”, 100 fluffy baby chicks were delivered this week. 50 are meat birds. 50 are layers. The cycle continues. I’m doing what I can to hurry spring production and get some kinds of quick growing green things available as soon as possible. We still have plenty of fresh eggs and frozen whole chickens available, along with watermelon radishes (Cube and roast in the oven – yum!) You can order online at marketatdothan.com for delivery to Dothan, Daleville/Ft. Rucker and Enterprise. Other options may be available, call or text me. In the mean time, remember Who is ultimately in control. Take care of each other and be safe. March 21, 2020 I’m a scrounger from way back. Before it was cool to repurpose thrown away things. Got this beauty from a “material recovery project” aka tearing down an old building for the wood. Whoever had lived there left a garden bed full of mixed bulbs. It’s been fun seeing what they are.
