No Such Thing as Slim Pickins at Browder's Fresh Pickins

You can see the cherry tomatoes growing along with the onions, and squash.

You can never have too many Red Hot Pokers.

The lettuce is going strong.  It loves this cool, rainy weather. 

We cut the scapes on the elephant garlic.  The scape is the flower head of the garlic.  Once you cut them off the garlic begins to "head up" and should be ready for harvest in 6 or 8 more weeks. 
From the Hearth Pizza will be using the scapes to make a delicious garlic pesto topping for their pizzas.  I'm getting hungry just thinking about it. 
Notice the visual difference between the elephant garlic and onions.  Elephant garlic is actually in the leek family and not in the garlic family (even though it looks like garlic.)  It has a mild garlic flavor and would be great sliced and sauteed as slivers on anything. 
The 13,000 onions we planted are rocking and rolling.  They should be ready within 2 months.

Our grafted Big Beef tomato plants in the high tunnel are doing great!  We should have ripe tomatoes in the next 2 weeks.  We'll keep you posted.

We've begun to harvest zucchini!

Thanks to everyone who supported us by purchasing plants this growing season!  We have sold an entire greenhouse full of hanging baskets, bedding plants, and vegetable transplants and couldn't have done it without you.  Now that there is more room in the high tunnel we have planted more rows of tomatoes and cantaloupes to increase our productivity and availability for you.

Lucy's own personal strawberry patch. 

We jive with chives.
