Crop walks are a lot of fun for both us and customers. We had about 20 guests on Wednesday. There was food (local bread, cheese, cookies, and melons from our trials. We had a T-shirt and hat raffle. And, of course, we had some exhibitions: We demonstrated a cool, new, labor-saving tool -- the paper-pot transplanter. We held a grafted greenhouse tomato tasting. We also looked at kale, pepper, melon, and flower trials.
If you weren't able to attend, here are a few highlights:

The next crop walk is slated for October 20 from 3 to 5:30 p.m. The focus will be on storage crops and season extension methods. If you can't make it to the public crop walks, the farm is also open for self-guided tours.
