Around Windermere Farms June - July
Crop rolling the Cereal Rye to turn the winter cover crop into a weed barrier for the subsequent cantaloupe crop.
Our helper and violinist Fiona Black setting out cantaloupe plants in the crop rolled field during a rain. Freida and Fiona have a new CD of their violin and piano duets available. Call or eMail for a copy. It is some of the sweetest music you will ever hear!

The strawberry plants have produced thousands of pounds of berries, however many had to be incorporated into the compost piles due to the excess rainfall this May. I use Aggrand Liquid Fish emulsion for fertilization during the fall and winter while the plants are getting established. You can buy the organic approved fertilizer from www.aggrand.com and use my number (1347717 ) as your sponsor if you like.
The Italian Flat Snap beans are making a climb in the last few minutes of afternoon light.
