The North Country saw a late start to gardening season this year, with a ridiculously wet spring and cool start to summer. Now that things have settled down and we're on the brink of August, the food crops are finally catching up to the season. Here's a quick tour of how plants at Better Farm are faring:

We have a TON of salad greens that are all doing very well, including this Asian variety:
Our peppers have flowers and should be taking shape in the next week or two:
...ditto for our pole and bush beans:
We've got gorgeous organic cabbage coming in:
...and bunches of multi-colored Swiss chard:
Even the zucchini, which seemed to take forever, is finally waking up after a long battle with squash bugs:
...and in the next week or two, we promise to have a bazillion tomatoes:
A personal favorite, ARTICHOKES!
...and oodles of onions:
Carrots are almost ready:
...and asparagus beans:
Sugar baby watermelons are on their way as well:
...and our first batch of potatoes are just about ready to tumble out of their tires:
