Growing Quality Local Produce Responsibly
We have been harvesting tomatoes for a couple of weeks but our production is finally in full swing – just in time for apple season. We have spent several years improving our vegetable production with moveable hoophouses so that the harvest of our summer crops comes before we start picking apples. Despite our careful planning, a cool Spring followed by a cool summer postponed tomato picking into August. This means Mary is a busy woman harvesting the last of our summer crops of beets, cucumbers, and zucchini and now spends her free time harvesting hundreds of pounds of tomatoes. Of course we can’t complain that we are able to have beautiful tomatoes with lunch followed by a crisp apple for dessert.
