What’s growing at Tutti Frutti Farm?

One of the techniques Chris employs in growing zucchini involves covering the soil with black plastic.  This plastic deters pests, helps to control weeds, provides protection around a young plant, and encourages its growth by trapping in heat and slowing the evaporation of water in the soil.  Look at the difference between these two sections of zucchini that were planted at the same time, one with plastic and one without.

On a different part of the farm, the tomatoes are beginning to ripen.  Here’s a preview of what’s going to come.  Below we have the Striped German and Cherokee Purple varieties.
