New Crops

Growing up outside of Detroit in the 1970s I never heard about avocados or persimmons. I would have been over 20 before I encountered either. That makes growing them on our farm all the more exciting. We’ve got our first crop of each, however how small.

We also grew ‘yams’ (oxalis tuberosa) for the first time and dug some yesterday.

And celery – I had no idea what a long season crop this it!

Always exciting growing a new crop for the first time.
