czyna asked: In your photo "snacks from the garden", what is the green and purple thing at the very bottom? Thanks!


Answer:

Thanks for your question! Those are watermelon radishes. Here are some more impressive looking ones I received in my farm share a while back.

edwardandthenewcat asked: That eggplant looks good. Did you start them from seed?


Answer:

Thanks! Yes, I started the rosa biancas from seed. It took a year before they started to produce any fruit.

This tomato plant in the plot next to mine is covered with a web covered in some kind of pinkish-orange spores. I was working on my plot for a good while when I realized I my back had been rubbing up against it. Kinda freaked me out. Does anybody know what this is?
