We’re resuming our normal harvest schedule this week! We’re proud to have both the hot tub and front-end loader repaired. We feel fortunate that the guest who stayed at the Thistle while the hot tub was broken still gave us a positive review!!! For those doing rentals – do you always worry about someone being comfortable and happy like we do? Perhaps that is something one gets over once they have enough experience.
See notes below on summer squash because they are large this week and may contain seeds. We also had an opportunity to get some fall crops transplanted; however, the ground hogs have discovered them and we haven’t had time to evict them off the farm. Anyone need a groundhog at their home?
This article in Science Daily titlted, “Crop yields for apples, cherries and blueberries across the United States are being reduced by a lack of pollinators, according to Rutgers-led research, the most comprehensive study of its kind to date.” confirms what we’ve been noticing at MHO. We had hoped the situation was just in our little valley, but the issue appears to be everywhere. This fall we’ll be evaluating the farm and doing an assessment so we can improve upon our habitat.
