The whirlwind days of summer

The flower field is going strong with almost every variety in bloom now.  We have been selling at the Pasco Farmer's Market and bulk orders straight off the farm.  If you need some flowers for a big event feel free to drop me an email at rabbitsandradishes@gmail.com.  Also, don't be surprised if posting here on the blog gets more sparse---you can follow me on instagram for more snippets like these.

2014 Tomato List

Wednesday, July 2, 2014

This year I ended up with 78 tomatoes in the ground.  While I am impatiently waiting for them to turn ripe I thought I would do a quick update on what all I had planted.  See last years tomato map in this post

Row 1: 2 tomatillos, 1 indigo rose, 3 honeybee, 6 sungreen, and 24 sungold tomatoes.
Row 2: One each of cherokee chocolate, solar flare, brandywine, persimmon orange, green zebra, cherokee purple, old german, german pink, and speckled roman tomato.  4 early girl, 4 grandenero, 9 suncherry, 10 sungreen and 8 sunpeach tomatoes.

A few sungolds and suncherries have ripened, and I am hoping for enough to bring to Pasco's Farmer's Market this Saturday.  Bring on tomato season!  Even my husband is asking how soon we can have BTLs.
