INTRODUCING ANOTHER FRIEND FROM WINDROSE………
In this picture Bill is holding a beautiful King Snake that we found by the bottom of the door to the greens cooler. She must have been there a while as she was very cold and very slow. Bill was moving her to the Little Orchard, where she could warm up and be safe..King Snakes and Gopher Snakes are good friends to the farm. They are known to keep rattlesnakes away. So when we see them we figure the rattlers are somewhere else !!
The leeks and onions will continue for one to two more weeks. Basils and shishito peppers still strong. The big hit at market this week were the French prune plums. We should have one more week of those. Then we start to have some tomatoes at last. Cherry tomatoes for sure. Picking more varieties of apples, with seconds always available .
