It is a busy, summer Saturday on the farm. There is so much to see and do:
The field crew of all ages and heights make sure that no beans are left behind.
Bean leaves hide faces.
Ben gets up close and gives his love to the beautiful Teggia bush beans and the morning’s harvest is carried in.
In the pumpkin patch, an eager Cinderella pumpkin is already large enough to wear a straw hat. Only time will tell if it grows up to serve as a carriage.
Blackberry season is upon us and big, ripe berries are appearing all over the farm. They are climbing up the groves of evergreen trees.
Down in the south-west corner of the farm they are thriving in their little bog, they are even nestled among rolls of irrigation tubing.
Visitors are welcome to join in on the blackberry harvest, we are offering U-pick by donation. The donation box is in the harvest hut.
The highlight of the day: the Farm Wonders Garden Lunch!
A spectacular meal of bbq tacos, salsas and cakes prepared by the Farm Wonders Camp team to the delight of their volunteers and the farm crew.
