What's Happening on the Farm
-penned by Brittni
Summer has peaked and so has the farm! The garden is gorgeous and growing up all it's trellises! The tomatoes are almost touching the top of the high tunnel and are loaded with beautiful green fruits and even more flowers. Any day now we will start seeing the beautiful blushing of the tomatoes!
Henrieka Farm Center welcomed back little farmers this week for the first of our 3 summer camps. This week they are practicing being veterinarians and learning the art of caring for farm animals. Next week we will be exploring the pond and wetlands... One of our most favorite weeks!
The last few weeks I have given you a variety of the herbs we have to offer, some of which are in great abundance. If you are interested in having more herbs to dry or medicinal herbs to dry please ask.... We may have it!
Enjoy these last sweet weeks of summer! We certainly are.
