Today the weather station at Scipio reports a soil temperature of 61F at 2 inches. At 10 inches it is still 53F, but we are getting there! Time to risk planting some of those early tomatoes??!!

05/19/2020

Happy Spring! Finally we are having some warmer weather this week. The last rain has finally warmed the soil above 50F, at the Scipio weather station it is now 53F at a 2 inch depth. That is still cold for this late in May, but warm enough to begin to plant some of the hardier vegetables. Cabbage, broccoli, beets, peas and lettuce will do all right, but tomatoes beans and peppers should wait for warmer soil temperatures.
Morgan's Half Acre Produce near Auburn NY is open with plants from Aurora Ridge Gardens as well as flowers, asparagus, rhubarb and baked goods. Time to get gardening!

Whether it is at Morgans Half Acre, a self serve roadside stand or other locations maybe online ordering....we will supply quality vegetable plants and advice to help gardeners new and experienced have a successful 2020 season.

When the soil is dry enough, start digging.. and watch for posts with advice and ask questions on this Facebook site. Good luck to all, keep your distance, wash your hands and stay healthy.

End of the season, and WOW! the bounty! I have never had peppers and eggplant grow like they did this summer. Four feet tall and loaded, they flopped down and filled the rows so I could hardly walk down to pick. Slicing tomatoes were good too, but ripened early and all at once, but cherry tomatoes go in forever! Thank you to everyone who came to the stand, bought veggies and helped me eat them! Until next year.....

I always love trying new things! This is jackfruit, a relative of breadfruit. It has a slight banana flavor and crunchy texture. When the gang tried it, some loved it, some hated it. I bought a small piece of what was a giant warty green ball with skin that looked like alien lizard people. Inside is a compound flower, the edible part the petals of the flower! Inside each petal is a large 'bean' seed, which I am saving to plant in my greenhouse (of course!).

This might just be my best yet.
