The garden at Liberty Hill Farms in July

Some of our 9 foot tomato plants in July. We have months of growing to do. What are we going to do with these monsters?

The peppers are growing like weeds. :) I won't get rid of this kind of weed!

These tomatoes are the first full harvest we had. They were yummy..... No, I did not sell these guys. They were the first fruits of the harvest which equals high standing in vegetable world. Nobody would want to pay the price I would put on these babies! I love eating them and knowing there are no pesticides sprayed on them.

In the forefront is the heirloom organic corn we are growing. In the background is the totally awesome hoophouse getting built. It is going to make it so we can grow earlier and later in the season which equals more varieties of foods longer in the year. It is also a great insect repellent! (Bugs can't freely get inside.)

This is a fuzzy shot of some more of the garden. We have 100 rows like the ones you see here. They are 18" wide and 30 feet long. It has been a lot of work putting this garden together but the education alone has been worth it. 

So, there you go. Another month goes by and a ton of things happen at the farm. We are starting to have more produce on our table and money in our pockets from people supporting our efforts through ordering and enjoying our vegetables. July has been a good garden month.
