Main Production, 2015

This year’s main production will be at my cousin’s property and his neighbor’s, located about 40 miles south in the city of Pleasant Grove.  Total land area in cultivation will be close to one acre.

Still have 1200+ seedlings to go in the ground and another 600 or so hills of melons, squash and cucumbers to plant from seed.  Many more days of toiling in the hot sun still too go – 100°+ weather coming this weekend.  Window of opportunity closing rapidly.  Too exhausted at the moment to post pictures and such.
