Alliums

Plant in early spring. Avoid overwatering by allowing soil to dry between watering as alliums prefer their roots not to sit it wet soil for an extended length of time. Alliums grow best with at least 1” of water per week, especially during the bulbing phase. Plants thrive in full sun and should be kept well weeded.

Cucumbers

Cucumbers are very sensitive to the cold. Plant in warm soil well after the chance of frost has passed. They need consistent, adequate irrigation, and well-drained soil that is high in fertility. We offer a variety of cucumber types, but flavor is similar for all and is dependent on growing conditions. Too much water can result in bland flavor.

herbs anchor

Herbs

Plant herbs in full sun and well drained soil. Plant annual and perennial herbs separately, as annuals prefer slightly more watering and perennials thrive under slightly drier soil conditions. Perennials can also spread vigorously and easily overpower a space. To avoid this, plant perennials in their own plot and frequently harvest and maintain, or simply keep in a big pot. Annuals taste best without being allowed to flower, so pinch off blooms if they appear. Plant in the spring and enjoy all summer long.

Summer Squash

These annual vegetables are harvested when young, small, and tender, but can grow quite large with relative ease. Summer squash prefer full sun, fertile, well-drained soil, and should be harvested a couple of times per week for the most desirable size. Male blossoms can also be harvested for eating but a few per plant should be left for pollination.

Winter Squash

Transplant out after threat of frost has passed and according to recommendations for each variety. Minimal root disturbance is best. At Casey Farm, winter squash grows best in black plastic mulch with landscape fabric between the beds. This keeps the soils warm, helps with moisture retention (we use drip tape irrigation under the plastic), and minimizes weeding.
