I went to my farm this past weekend. Mowed grass for 6 hours with my cub. It’s not fast but does a great job. We finally got some rain down there, about an inch and a half in about two hours. That’s the only rain of any significance in over three weeks. My potatoes and peas are looking fine, my corn is looking pitiful. I’m certainly not going to have a great crop like last year. I worked in my tomato garden today. They are looking great. I suckered and tied up about 400 plants. Everything there got side dressed with the first round of calcium nitrate fertilizer today. With any luck I’ll get a little rain the end of the week to get that fertilizer in the ground. I’ve got tomatoes about the size of golf balls on a bunch of plants

The gardens are going pretty good in spite of the lack of rain here in NC. I harvested my potatoes this past Saturday. I planted about 30 pounds of seed potatoes and harvested about 175 pounds. I had red pontiacs, kennebecs, and Yukon golds. The red pontiacs produced as much as the other two combined. I’ve been watering my tomatoes at least every other day. I picked a few last week and picked about a five gallon bucket full today. I ate my first blt of the summer today. My peas are looking decent but corn is going to be poor this season. We need rain very bad here

Local farmers market prices: $2- a pound for tomatoes, green beans, and new potatoes.

It's been two years since we have had any vendors for garden produce. Prices are double from previous farmers markets.
I have an excuse. CRS.
