Indigo Farms update Aug. 10

    Beans and peas have been short and not to be found. Part of the problem with butterbeans appears to be with beans actually forming or maturing. This is a strange phenomenon and no one seems to know if it is weather related or a seed issue. We have planted a fall crop of beans and peas and hope if it is weather related we can produce speckled, green butterbeans, peas and green beans.   Meanwhile we do have Dixie Lee peas now. We have been able to get white acre, brown crowder,  and pinkeye peas. We have October beans ( sometimes referred to as Cranberry beans).   O Henry peaches are still in season. If you have never had O Henry peaches you really should try them. Thankfully, we currently have a good supply. SnowJack white peaches are also available.    We have planted fall mustard greens, carrots, turnips and sowed cabbage, collards, kohlrabi and more. Our fall crop of tomatoes is looking good. Organic wise we have sowed these as well. So we hope to have organic produce in the fall as well.    Currently we have organic eggplant ( many varieties), peppers, okra, a small amount of yellow squash, potatoes and zinnias.   Take advantage of the tomatoes, eggplant, pepper. All these veggies are in the same family. This is their time to shine. The eggplant is very good right now.   We are just starting to bring in from the mountains some plums and apples.    

             Believe me we try hard to get to the bottom of things!
