Mid-Summer
Here at Flying Onion we welcome the dog days of summer, because when the heat kicks in, the plants get a-growing.
Everywhere I look in the fields I see thriving green leaves reaching to the sun and reaching, reaching..... Some plants seem to grow so fast this time of year that if I turn my back for a moment, they seem to double in size. The squash patch is a great example; the neat rows of plants are gone and now there's a sheer mass of vegetation taking over the space and spreading outward. Spring crops of lush green leaves have yielded to the rapid growing heat loving plants like squash, beans, tomato and yacon which thrive in the hot sun and grow like crazy this time of year. Overall, the farm is thriving. All the careful spring tending and weeding is paying off because asides from planting for the fall, regular irrigation and harvesting, we get a little breather this time of year when the heat really picks up.
Wheew.

SEED GARLIC for planting in the fall. We have many amazing varieties available starting mid-august. See Here for more details.
