What's Growing On

Despite the unseasonably dry weather we've experienced this spring (32.30" ytd), our plants are truly on their horse. We had a wonderful spring flush all around after successfully fertigating our trees with California Organic Fertilizer's Fish Gold 5-1-2 using our 885x Mazzei injector. We've also applied Phytaset QC (Liquid Calcium & Boron) to our kiwis, grapes and pomegranates to enhance fruit quality, size and storability. We will continue applying both in splits until our fruit has fully sized.

We completed our harvest of Gold Nugget Mandarins this week with a season total of ~600#. They went to Little Bee Pops, The Picnic Basket, and Frog Hollow Farm's Happy Child CSA. We're also nearing the end of our Genoa Lemon harvest for the year. We've picked and shipped over 500#s to date. Many thanks to our local and Local Harvest customers!

In other news, we were featured in the Community Alliance for Family Farmers' (CAFF'S) E-Newsletter this month. We are grateful to Ashley and Sadie for including us in their Buy Fresh, Buy Local campaigning and for assembling a Production Proposal for us.
Grow on!
