These are 3 different tomato plants!

We are going to have gobs of tomatoes, I can't wait!!

Tomatoes in salads, tomatoes in eggs, tomatoes in salsa. Yum, yum, yum.

Do you know what this is? It's Mustard Greens! 

I'll admit not the tastiest (let's be real, it's bitter) but it's super healthy. 

It detoxify's the liver (that means more summer cocktails for me) and it's high in antioxidants and so much more.

Did you know that you can eat the whole pea plant? Here the plant is in it's infancy but the shoots, which are the tender tips of the vines, including the leaves, stems, flower blossoms, and tendrils, make the most fantastic and unexpected salad greens. They taste like peas, but with a wonderful grassy, green flavor that is all their own.

But when they are fully grown they are crisp, delicious Sugar Snap Peas. :)

The time has come the farmer said to trellis many things from tomato plants to sugar snap peas and discuss whether plants have dreams. (Thank you Alice in Wonderland for inspiration for that ditty).


What? Sugar snap peas require trellising?

Stay tuned for more.

This pepper is a big, blocky, thick-walled red bell pepper with a fruity and sweet flavor.


Did you know a green pepper is simply an unripe version of a red pepper?

Cue: Hey! Oh! Let's Go! .... to farmers for lettuce. :)

It's been a minute since we've had lettuce but we are back on track. With the absence of rain and bright, beautiful sunny days the ground has adsorbed all the water and given us an opportunity to transplant. Thank you Mother Earth.

There are celebrities at LOVOF. I doubt it's anyone you know, unless of course, you know tomatoes. :)
Here we are seeing the emergence of the first flower.

Monday, April 17, 2017

Anyone know what these are? Any guesses?

First a hint, the leaves that you see are the cotyledons (an embryonic leaf in seed-bearing plants, one or more of which are the first leaves to appear from a germinating seed).

It's a radish. :) If you look closely you can see one leaf that is different (I think it looks like a mint leaf) and that is the radish leaf.

The absolute, best, perfect way to store your strawberries:

1. Get a clean and dry plastic tupperware container
2. Line the bottom with a paper towel
3. Place a single row of berries, unwashed, on the paper towel
4. Layer paper towel over berries and add more berries. I never do more than 2 rows. Make sure you put a paper towel over the top row. Close lid and store in refrigerator. Your berries will last one week.


I'm quite the seasoned strawberry expert so here are a few strawberry eating tips for you:

1. Never eat a cold strawberry. It's just not the same.
2. When you wash make sure you let it dry completely. 
3. When you are storing your berries look at them. Look at the levels of ripeness and if you see one that is perfectly ripe and will only decline from there - eat it!!

Tomatoes and Peppers are companions on and off the field. They are what's known as companion plants. Growing tomatoes near peppers helps to shade the soil, and can offer the peppers some protection from the sun in the hottest parts of the day. Plus, salsa!

 Let the transplanting begin! We have red and green lettuces and Napa cabbage. With so much more to come. :)

See the white on the beds? That is Gypsum. It will help amend calcium deficient soil.

Beautiful but hot hot day today. Spring begins next Monday. Hmm, I think we got our seasons mixed up this year.

These two pictures are seemingly the same but vastly different. One has been mowed and the other has been mowed and tilled. We mow to keep the voles away and to chop up all the cover crop so that it's easier for the land to digest. And of course, we till to incorporate the cover crop into the ground. Phew, my point being this land is being prepared for planting.

Yesterday this land was formed into beds and today was all hands on deck for TRANSPLANTING!

Strawberry plants for sale!! We are selling these at $2 a pop. This particular variety is June Bearing which means they yield all of their fruit over a few months.

Come and pick one of these up at Saturday's market. :)


Did you know what we planted 7000 strawberry plants!!!
Out in the field we have berries of varying ripeness. The five stages of fruit are flower, green fruit, white fruit, pink fruit and red fruit.

First up we have, Mei Qing Choi, a flat, pale, misty green stem which forms thick, broad base leaves with a rich green color. Intrigued? Oh yeah!! Unfortunately there's nothing new here, you've probably already eaten it once or twice in your life. It's common name is Baby Bok Choy!!

Endive is a member of the chicory family, which includes radicchio, escarole, frisee and curly endive. It has a crisp texture and a sweet, nutty flavor with a pleasantly mild bitterness. Bring on the bitter. :)

Organic farmers know that planting legumes, like the bell beans seen above, will increase the amount of nitrogen for the next crop.

Nitrogen is so vital because it is a major component of chlorophyll, the compound by which plants use sunlight energy to produce sugars from water and carbon dioxide (i.e., photosynthesis). It is also a major component of amino acids, the building blocks of proteins. Without proteins, plants wither and die.

So how does this work? The simple answer is that symbiotic bacteria, Rhizobia, which are found within the nodules on the roots of legumes. These bacteria convert nitrogen from the air into usable nitrogen for the plants to live. When the plant is tilled into the soil, the nitrogen is release into the soil and increases soil fertility.

But in simple terms, we simply call it a cover crop.
