Waiting for the Shoe to Drop


Farm Journal – week of

July 2 2017 – July 8 2017

This week besides harvesting for our markets we accomplished our weekly chores of weeding, cutting grass, tying tomatoes and hoeing. Despite our battles with blight and insects our crops look relatively good. So, naturally we are waiting for the disaster shoe to drop. Every time we hear thunder we think hail and the adult stink bugs (BMSB) usually start spreading their destruction around the 15th of July. They will be a major pest until the first part of September which is when they start coming inside to hibernate.  All we can do is put up a good fight and hope for the best.
