    Greeting fellow farmers, This summer has cooled off considerable this August, here in Maine. July had two weeks of "wicked hot" temps in the 90's, but lately we've topped out at upper 70's. It was so hot that I actually had green peppers get to full size! This year I focused on salad makings, harvesting several types of lettuce, cherry tomatoes and green peppers. The herbs: basil, oregano and chives season our homemade salad dressings. It's good to be a farmer.

    Gardening in the yard is very rewarding. Keep up the good work.

    Town Flower Farm, how did you do with the sale of your place?

    so, after months of working on the place, our house with it's .23 acres (Town Flower Farm) is for sale and our first showing is next Tuesday. It took some doing to find a realtor that would buy into marketing it as an urban farm. Most felt it would be more likely to put off potential buyers. I'm thinking it will narrow the field down to only those buyers that won't be put off by the gardens and the nice piles of compost and kindling. My dream home would be a townhouse in downtown Portland with a flat roof so we could put in a rooftop garden with a bird feeder and bird bath. We'll trade in squirrels for pigeons and I'll still have a Town Flower Farm.

    Here's a few photos of late spring and first day of summer. The farm will soon go on the market, we've nearly finished reworking the inside, making it ready to show.

    here's a few photos of our Maine spring 2012. It's been the best spring ever, long and slow, cool and damp enough. we did have a really early warm spell that lasted 4 days and nights, it shut the maple syrup season off a month early. most farmers here knew not to bee fooled and didn't plant early, but we could have. I put in peas in April which is a little early usually, the lilacs are bountiful.
