STOGROW Summer 2009

STOGROW's 5th growing season has begun! The majority of plants are in the ground and growing healthily, with the exception of some sick-looking squash plants. Unfortunately the cucumber beetles attacked our baby squash seedlings with full force, but we are currently starting new seedlings in the green house. We have 3 egg-laying chickens on the farm this year and so far, they have been a delightful addition to the farm.

This year we have planted a variety of vegetables including: basil, tomatoes, beans, eggplants, green and red bell peppers, kale, brussel sprouts, winter and summer squash, zucchini, cucumbers, carrots, beets, radishes, salad mixes, spinach, onions, pumpkins, melons, and peas.
