Goings-on On the Farm

With the strawberries beginning to turn red, it’s time to start paying attention to what will be the next fruit of the season. Today, I netted off the blueberry bushes, already covered with tiny berries, to prevent birds from grabbing this tasty fruit right off the plant as they ripen! The summer crops are happy with today’s warmer weather, with the tomatoes already shooting up plenty of new growth since being transplanted at the beginning of the month. The tomatoes are being grown on a bed covered by black plastic to help keep the plants warm and to suppress the weeds.
