June Update

Posted on by Gilberte Doelle

With temperatures hovering around 7° today it's hard to believe we're already into June -- a few weeks to go before Summer Solstice. We've been transplanting and planting lettuce indoors and out for several weeks now. Beans, Peas and some seed crops have been sown outside too. Cucumbers and tomatoes in the greenhouse have had their first round of suckering as they've grown enough to demand trellising. Once the weather warms a little we'll be able to really make a dent in the outside planting. Last year we had a very late frost which cut back some of our cucurbits (squash, cucumbers, melons) in the field. Fingers crossed we should be okay for this season!
