"The May 24 long weekend is always filled with many farm activities as it marks the typical last frost date and get's us to plant the more sensitive varieties to complete the Spring plantings for the year. This year is no different with incredible weather over the weekend, helping to get the zucchini, patty pan, cucumber, green pepper, among others, into the ground. This adds to the kale, lettuce, cabbage already in the ground since April and doing very well. Everyone is keeping a watchful eye on the emergence of cucumber beetle, already "bugging us". At the same time, we are already seeing wonderful benefits of David's covercrop planting in the Fall of 2015, helping nurture the soil and suppressing weeds. This year we will also bring back the consumer farm tours so that we can tell you all about it in person, look out for the dates. Here the Beyers & Porter farm team is together for a quick Sunday picnic in the Garlic patch (from left to right, Joel Porter and David with Kate, David Beyers Jr, Marlize and Meiring Beyers). Enjoy the weather, look forward to bring the the local produce to you very soon.
