This year's corn crop
Moondog's Farm produces vegetables and veggie seed. Sometimes, these two worlds cross over. This year, we are growing a sweet corn called Top Hat for seed crop for breeder Jonathan Spero at Lupine Knoll Farm. We're excited to be expanding the availability of an excellent tasting, open-pollinated sweet corn seed to the organic vegetable market.
Also exciting: sharing home-grown sweet corn with farm members!
The birds get theirs
Sneak a peak around the Moondog's Farm and you'll see signs of summer sneaking in. Fields of corn and squash are streching up, nestled under the white cloth row cdover you'll see in our birds-eye video, which excludes pests (mainly beetles and birds) from young plants.
Until this year. We discovered our neighbor crows, having watched us plant, later returned to poke small holes through the cloth, in line with our corn planting. We are, in addition, bird seed farmers.
