Happy Summer Solstice!!! Summer is officially here!
It has been a very hot week up at the ranch. I finally sucked it up and wore shorts in the garden.
There have been a few projects occurring in and around the garden simultaneously. Unfortunately when that happens the garden starts to need some extra love, so that is my mission today.
Blackberries are starting to turn pink and some zucchini are ready for harvest. I thought this weeks heat would have pushed the tomatoes faster, but they are still playing games with me. Unless they want people to just make fried green tomatoes.
In addition to offering the 'Hike & Harvest' experience at the ranch, I have also created a new experience called 'Farmers Hike & Harvest.' However, as of now it can only be accessed through AirBnB Experiences. It is an hour longer than a Hike & Harvest because participants will get to participate in a garden project and also get to have a simple snack at the garden.
Current Harvest at Saddlerock: Artichokes, Garlic Scapes, Strawberries, Red & Purple Potatoes, Kale, Collards, Tomatoes, Peppers, Zucchini, Flowers, Herbs
