Tomato & Cucumber Trellising
Check out how we manage our cucumber and indeterminate tomato plants.
Sunday we went to Glenwood Sunday Market in Chicago. We had a great time and sold lots of greens. We had tons of beautiful lettuces, baby lettuce, baby kale, five kale varieties, strawberries, and herbs. Unfortunately on the way to the market, our back door opened to our trailer and we lost some product :(, including our broccoli and radishes. It was the first time trialing our set up so we learned a few things to improve. The cooler trailer is key to having super fresh product all day!
Our stand is open Fridays noon to dark- if you’re local, come on by. We are only one mile off M-139, on the corner of Hinchman and Amber Jam.
New this past week are tomatoes and strawberries! About half of our tomatoes are now trellised and we are busy planting more crops, harvesting product, and tending to plants. If you'd like some quality time in nature, we'd be happy to take your help :)
