June is a relatively peaceful month for our farm. The rush to plant the crop is thankfully behind us, and early crop maintenance has been completed. Last year was a dry as a bone and the irrigation equipment was cleaned up and put to use early. This year we have already had more rain than the entire season of 2016. While there are some bare spots in areas where the seed potatoes were drowned out early in the spring, the potato plants are thriving in most fields (as you can see from the nicely filled in rows in the photos above.) The close up pictures are our Yukon Gem potato plants, which are very popular with our customers. To learn more about our different varieties of potatoes you can visit “What We Offer – Potatoes.”
