Wow, straight into summer which shouldn't be too surprising I guess. In the 90's all week, most of the greens have bolted, we had to pull the early Radishes as they also went straight to seed. We have a second sowing up and hopefully we get something out of them instead of just feeding them to the sheep. There are some tomato plants we have stuck in odd protected places around the Greenhouse and growing spaces that already have fruit on them. Bill is preparing the main garden this weekend to make room for the rest of the warm weather crops. I know you all are waiting for cucumbers, tomatoes and I'm ready for some more pickles and salsa. 

A couple of weeks ago, we posted pictures of the Meech's Prolific Quince blossoms. I hand pollinated and we saw some bees and hummingbirds working on them. Today, I took these shots. 

We have about 20 I think if they all make it. Very exciting and Prolific. They've only been in the ground a season. 

Thanks to everyone for their well wishes last weekend. Bill and I took it easy and we both are feeling much better. We appreciate how you all treated the girls and stopped by our booth even though we weren't there. They did a pretty good job too. 
We'll see you Saturday at the park for another warm one. Dress cool but come to have some fun and get some great and local food. 

God's blessings on you and yours


Sam, Bill and Cortney
