It’s June, and that means one thing up here at High Rocks: camp New Beginnings is right around the corner! In order to fuel the adventures of the campers headed our way, we have been working hard in our high tunnel to grow deliciously fresh produce that will stock the kitchen and salad bar. Let’s take a peek at the journey so far!
The groundwork is set! Broccoli, onions, peppers, and more. A few weeks pass, and…
Whew! Look at all that growth! Beets, carrots, and potatoes have shot up.
Time for a broccoli harvest! Coming soon to a salad near you.
Meet Harley! He gave us quite the scare at first glance, but he is now a permanent addition to the high tunnel crew. He specializes in organic pest control.
June 4th, and we’re in full swing! A beautiful sight to behold.
The first zucchini of the season!
And of course, no high tunnel would be complete without a resident tarantula. If Harley doesn’t keep us on our toes, our rubbery friend sure does!
We are thrilled to be producing so much goodness for our girls to enjoy this summer. Here’s to a great and healthy New Beginnings!
