Corn is coming!

Corn time is here.
 It looks like this week will be our first week of corn! The peppers, eggplant, and okra are starting to come in too.

Things are getting very busy on the farm as we are reaching the height of the summer harvest season and getting ready for fall at the same time. This week we finished tilling (turning) the soil in our fall field and started planting fall crops like spinach, peas, salad greens, etc. 
Tilling the fall field to prepare for planting.
The artichokes are finished with their season and are blooming. Does it look like a thistle to you? If so, it's with good reason. They are in the same family. The artichokes we eat are actually immature flower buds.
