Hello Friends of Trosly Farm!

It's that time of year when I don't update as often because there is so much happening on the farm!
Here's a few shots of the high tunnel going full blast...

We've got some onions and pumpkins outside and inside the cucumbers, tomatoes, beans, squash, & zucchinni are going crazy!

Here's a view from inside of the basil, tomatoes, & cukes!

And the sheep say hello!
