Memorial Day Market & A New Farm Helper

A weeks progress

The Newsletter of Hollyberry Herb Farm

There was some excitement on the farm this week, we added a new member.  Meet Chester The Farm Dog.  He’s a cute mix of something, but he is smart and I am convinced he will be just the thing to keep the wild critters from helping themselves to the chickens and ducks.  It will take some training to teach him the do’s and don’ts- such as leaving the chickens alone himself, but it will be worth it.  A good farm dog is worth their weight in gold.

This week found us picking our first cucumber, squash, and cherry tomatoes.  Not enough yet to share, but enough to savor the first tastes of summer.

Carrots were harvested which made room for tomatillios to go in and more tomatoes were planted.  We have blooms on the pepper plants- hooray! And I am proud to say that the paste tomatoes are loaded up.
