We (Dave & Joann Rennhack) took a farm tour on Sunday, June 19 to check out our crops. I took a camera along, so you can see, too. On the photos on our home page, our earliest sweet corn is pictured with Dave kneeling, showing that it is knee-high by Father’s Day in 2011. The next photo shows some of our light sweet cherries, with bright yellow mustard (Dave uses special seed; it’s a natural biofumigant) in the background. Can you guess what Dave is doing amongst the apple trees? He is counting apples on a young tree, to make sure the fruit load is appropriate for the size. These lush-looking apple trees will be producing SweeTango(R) apples around September 10 or so. In the next photo are some early black sweet cherries, which will be much riper and darker in a couple of weeks. The photo with the tall posts & wires shows some small, young sweet cherry trees that Dave is growing on a tall spindle system; right now they are supported by bamboo poles. The sixth photo shows some little tomatoes coming along nicely.
