What a beautiful week and to start with an eclipse makes it even better. The crops are growing great and as soon as the soil dries we will begin digging Potatoes. We just started pulling onions so they can cure in the sun. The field Cucumbers and Pickles are finished as are the seedless greenhouse ones. The American style Cucumbers in the greenhouse are still going strong. Next season we plan on not growing pickles. If this makes you sad then please let us know.

This is a test please ignore. We are having troubles with our post.
The Seedless English and Lunchbox Cucumbers are nearing the end of their lives. It is time to plant winter greens in the greenhouse. Next year we will have a longer Cucumber season now that we know the nutrition needs for the plants. It is easy in a greenhouse for soils to become out of balance. What may be great for one crop is not ideal for another. Most greenhouse vegetable production is soil-less. We believe soil grown vegetables are superior in taste and nutrition.
