Summer is slowly creeping in.

Blueberries are starting to turn blue so we had to put up our bird control right away. These are balloons that Noe puts up that are suppose to scare the birds. We also have a sound system to makes bird distress noises, along with stringing up a lot of metallic tape that flashes lots of light.
We also have a net that we put over 2 blueberry fields but we haven't put that up the last 2 years.

Below is a picture of a field getting planted with corn. It had wheat in in before but instead of working it up, it was planted with the no-till method. You have to be on the lookout for slugs and make sure to get them under control when you do no-till method rather than traditional.

Above is Chinese Cabbage (Bok Choy) we are raising for seed. I was over there yesterday and the field is blooming yellow! Need to take a picture of that to show you all.

And blueberries! This was a picture taken last week. I couldn't believe how much bluer they turned over the weekend! You could even find a few to eat, although still a bit sour.

This is a picture of the bird distress call system we use.
Well that's the update for now. A lot more happening than this but I need to haul my camera around with me today so I can take more pictures.
