August is a busy month on the farm. We are starting to phase out summer crops and starting our fall and winter crops. We start by rotating out some of our summer favorites like squash and zucchini. By and large they have produced great but the heat and squash bugs have gotten the best of them. We will be pulling out the plants out, adding compost and organic fertilizers to the soil and reshaping beds. The beds will then be tarped to kill any weed seeds that are in the soil. We do this to keep from having to use chemicals to kill the weeds. This is one of the ways that we use to keep farming organically.
