No one can argue that summer is truly upon us. The heat of the past two weeks have really kicked things into high gear. We have been irrigating around the clock to keep the plants happy in this summer heat. Most of the plants have responded greatly to the heat and the water. There are a few of our crops who prefer the cooler weather however. Most of those crops will not be with us again until the fall.

Here are a couple of photos from some of our cover cropped fields:
