7/22/13- Farm Visits & Crop Conditions
We’ve had a great couple weeks around the farm. The groups of Brazilians and Camp Connections kids had successful visits to the farm, and the crops have received some timely rainfall during polination. The last of the soybeans have been sprayed with herbicide, and Blake has kept the weeds down in his edamame plot… using an old row-crop cultivator borrowed from a neighbor. We had the opportunity to take another aerial scouting tour, and the crops are progressing nicely. Although some fields have ponds, crop conditions look good overall.
