June Garden Update

Updated: Jul 13, 2022

Pumpkin Patch update!

There's a lot growing on! We transplanted all of our pumpkins at the beginning of June due to the winter storm in May. We are growing all of our heirlooms as usual but we are growing some exciting hybrids so we can update our photos and videos. The hybrids include Blaze F1, Hooligan F1, Gooligan F1, Black Kat F1, Casperita F1, Orangerita F1, Mint Prince F1, Jade Knight F1, Colorado Sunset F1, and Dark Knight F1, Sleepy Jack F1, Specter F1, and many more. We are also growing more Thai Rai Kaw Tok and Yokohama so we will have fresh stock after October.

We will showcase more of our pumpkins in the July update. :)

Sunflowers Galore!

We are wanting to update photos and videos for all of our sunflowers this year so we are growing all of the following: Earthwalker, Lemon Eclair, Strawberry Lemonade, Strawberry Blonde, Butter Cream, Pinot Noir, Plumb, Teddy Bear, Mammoth Sunflower and Chocolate Cherry.

Harvest time!

We are in zone 5a,b so we are always behind some other folks in the warmer zones, but so far we have been able to enjoy cabbage, kale, several kinds of lettuces, radishes, and kohlrabi.

Yedikule Lettuce, Boston Bibb, Big Boston, Bronzed Beauty, Oak Leaf, Blond Paris Island, and Romaine.

Early Purple and Early White Kohlrabi

Organic Red Russian Kale, Merlot Lettuce, French Breakfast Radishes, Caramel Spinach, Mayan Jaguar Lettuce, Bloomsdale Lettuce, Red Cherry Radish, and Bok Choy.

Other Growings on...

Some volunteer wildflowers, a volunteer tomatillo plant, money plant seedlings, a birds & bees wildflower mix, and our tomato garden.

Local Wildlife...

We have garter snakes all over the place. We love these little guys as they help with the bad bugs, and they deter rodents. They love the water and we always try to keep a dish of fresh water for them in the garden.

We will have more updates soon! We like to remind everyone we are home-based so while we don't have a physical location for folks to visit, we enjoy sharing our blog so you can see our operation and what we have grown. One of our goals is to procure a piece of land where we will be able to grow more varieties and have everyone come visit us.
