The Farm On The Beach: Week One

Some peppers have croaked.

And a celery or two as well.

Broccoli looking strong.

Wind is definitely a demon here at the beach farm. And take note -those thunderstorm rains barely pierce the soil surface. Maybe a 1/4-inch down and it is dry and dusty. Flood irrigation is not so great until the plants get bigger root systems -as expected. But overall, things growing, getting darker green since their anemic existence in those cel-packs.

  1. I'm sorry that some of your plants have died. A few of our tomato plants have bit the dust too because of the scorching sun. Many of the leaves have sun burn!


If I do not respond to your comment right away, it is only because I am busy pulling out buckthorn, creeping charlie, and garlic mustard...
