Sprouting Produce!

This week has been a great week for produce in our gardens. Our visitors have been tasting beans, which has become a very unique experience for those individuals who have never been to the Southwest before. It has particularly been popular with our visitors from other countries. The corn is beginning to silk, and we should be seeing the formation of ears very soon. It is interesting that most of our corn is under three feet tall (which was somewhat expected) but the smallest individuals that are only a foot to two feet tall are the first stalks to begin producing silk. The squash bugs have proven to be detramental to our squash plants, and about half have died in the last few weeks. We have already begun researching natural and prehistoric methods of dealing with these pesky creatures for next year’s crops.
