Farm Blog - Mid July Gardens are blooming

Rain please....... we are really hoping to get some rain to make the gardens really happy. Groundwater may keep the plants alive but rain makes them thrive.

Delicious Chicken We happily have our first batch of chickens ready. There are whole chickens, half or quarters available. These are a heritage breed that tastes extraordinary. Available fresh till Sunday and then frozen until they are gone. $5/lb. Only one more batch this season and they will be ready end of November.

The garlic is looking great and we are harvesting small bits for market but hope to do the bulk of the harvest next week. After digging, we tie it in bunches that we hang from the rafters in the barn. In about two weeks it should be cured and will last through the winter.

We have some lovely dill stalks if you are pickling.
