What's Growing At The BOHO Farm


The artichokes are blooming...can't wait to roast these babies with some EVO and French sea salt.


First of the season blackberries are ripe on the vine.


All our veggies are planted in the raised beds and we are just waiting for the fruits
of our labor.  On the far right is a new bed that is for heirloom pumpkins.
These are not the pumpkins you get in the grocery store;
they are warty, striped, multi color and squatty pumpkins.
This fall you can come to BOHO Farm and pick your beauties!
They will look like these.


We planted corn on the west side of the bed to protect the eggplants and leeks
from the hot Arizona afternoon sun.  Also, with the construction mesh that we place over top
we can shade our plants at anytime if we see they are stressed.



Boo is so excited about the corn.  I planted it just for him.  It is such a fast grower and
kids just love to see results from what they plant.


The peaches and apricots are slow this year and we lost a bunch of blossoms with
that late frost we had in February.




Our Anna Apples are growing beautifully--they loved
all that freezing weather we had this winter.

Can't wait to make those 4th of July apple pies and crisps!

We finally trellised the espalier apple hedges that we planted a couple years ago


I wanted it to look like grapes, so we have redwood posts that are 4.6 ft tall and
three equidistant wires going across.  They are happy!

We are busy around the farm getting ready for the Edible Arcadia Tour on May 15 from 9am to noon. 
You can get your tickets here.  Hope you can come join us and see what is growing first hand!


Have a great weekend and Happy Mother's Day!

  6. Caroline, your garden looks beautiful! and those fruits coming on so nicely are making me quite anxious. We have been harvesting lots of lettuce greens, spinach, kale... and tomatoes are beginning to set little blossoms, but we shall have to wait a bit longer for warmer weather.

    Happy Mother's Day and have a blessed weekend.

  8. The artichokes look gorgeous...are they hard to grow?

    Your raised beds are looking wonderfully healthy, I so wish I lived closer so I could come to one of your events, your farm and home are such an inspiration.

    Thank you for stopping by to see my gladies, I am so happy you enjoyed them.

  16. Oh, I'm having such fun with Pinterest--more than I have with Tumblr! I love your espaliered apple hedges--I would like to do something similar but probably on a smaller scale. Espaliers are pretty common around here, especially for pears.
