|June is almost summer here in the north. Weíll get some days of good hot weather, and in a rare year a bone-fide heat wave, but by and large itís late spring and often still quite wet. The early planted crops are starting to fill the fields and the weather is finally just warm enough so that the plants are really growing properly. We start harvesting the first field crops in June. Spinach and lettuce are the first crops to follow Mayís asparagus. The most eagerly awaited crops are strawberries and peas. The first good picking of strawberries is usually about June 20-23, and we usually get 3 good full weekends of strawberries.||
Here we are getting a head start on the weeds in June. The crop is barely up and the weeds are still almost invisible.
