The Farm: August Report


Before I begin, a point of business: I started a Facebook page today for this blog, and I would really, really appreciate it if y’all can go to the page and “Like” it. It helps me get an idea of who’s reading and I also hope it will be a forum for feedback, suggestions, and comments. Thanks a bunch! OK, now on to our regularly scheduled program…

As it happens in summer, things are growing like crazy at The Farm. The pumpkins are getting huge, the second plum tree is overflowing with fruit, and the tomatoes and peppers are finally ripening. Without further ado, here’s the latest from the farm.

(I apologize for the quality of the photos, but I forgot my camera and had to shoot with the iPhone. And it was so sunny that most of them came out overexposed. I promise to do better next time!)

The cutest pumpkin you will ever see. Look how tiny it is!

See, I told you the pumpkins were getting big! These look to be 3-5 lbs to me.

More pumpkins, with a green one on the left.

Can't wait to make some plum crisp when these start to ripen.

Unlike everything else, these apples haven't grown much in the past month.

Too bad these pears aren't good, because they sure look tasty.

This fly has a thing for figs.

Giant (overgrown) chard, about 2 feet tall.

The sunflowers are still going strong.

These are bell peppers that TC is growing at his house in a pot. Aren't they adorable (if a bit blurry)?

Tiny tomatoes!
