Crop Report

14 Jun

Since we have a lull in the kidding, I have finally gotten to work on my garden! I still have my two young bucks in the yard, so it still hasn’t been mowed, but I did get mowed around the garden.

It’s late, but it’s almost all planted.  Of course, the part with the tomato cages in the back, is actually garden.  I need to reclaim the little bit I had already planted.  The tomatoes and peppers and zucchini all look good.  I just need to get rid of weeds.


I also have cherries!


I picked the first of them today.


The other day I went for a walk in the pumpkin patch.  You can see the corn to the right is growing nicely, and the hay really needs made from the buffer strip.  Guess what!

We have pumpkins!

We are so dry!  I think a good rain would really finish popping the pumpkins through.  Look what it’s doing!  Can you see the raindrops?

It’s not a lot of rain, but every drop helps.

I hope you’ll consider coming back to join me for Friday’s Hunt.  The items for this week are at the top of my sidebar.

    Those red cherries look delicious. It is such a good photograph and I also love the last photograph and the sun has just set. I do hope you will get some more rain so the pumpkin patch can bring for more growth.

      We got just a bit of rain last night. Hopefully, we’ll have more come our way. It’s crazy because large parts of the state had flash flooding with so much rain yesterday.

    I love your cherries. They look so healthy. I truly hope you get sufficient rainfall to help with your pumpkin patch.

      Thanks! The cherries make great jams and pies. I’m happy to have so many on the tree this year.

    Those cherries look soooo yummy! The cherry trees in this area have barely finished flowering. Same with apple trees – you can still see the blossoms. I wish I could send you some of our rain – it’s been non-stop for over a week now!

      They are a tart cherry for jams and pies. Can’t wait to use them!

    Hello, the cherries look delicious. I love the last sky shot. I hope all your crops do well. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

      Thanks. I am still hoping for more rain so we can have good crops. It’s been crazy hot and dry for this time of year.

    Your cherries do look good! My father-in-law had an orchard of those many years ago. He used to hire a crew to come in a shake the trees to get the ripe cherries. They were caught by the machine and then hauled away in tubs of water since they’re so fragile. I wonder if they still do that. It was a lot faster than picking by hand! Those make such lovely pies and desserts!

      They are a lot of work to pick. It’s not bad with my one tree, but I would hate to do an entire orchard!

    the cherries look awesome!

    Hooray for cherries…and pumpkins…and rain drops…hope there are more soon! Is that field on the other side of the buffer strip (looks like straw) the rye field where you planted your pumpkins?

      I really need more rain drops. We’re horrible dry here. That is the pumpkin patch! It really needs rain badly too.
