What's Growing & How
U-Pick| Irrigation & Equipment|
Peas are the first crop we plant every year. If possible we plant them before the end of March. They can even be planted while the ground is still frozen. The first planting includes several different verities that mature at different times. This planting will allow us to pick peas for about 3 weeks. We will continue to plant peas till late May using one long day verity to give us a continues supply of peas till late July.
We start planting beans in mid may. We have to wait till then because beans can be killed by frost. We continue planting about every two weeks until the end of July to ensure a continuous supply of beans till thanksgiving. We will normally start picking beans about 60 days after planting and will get 1 to 2 pickings off of a planting.
