Despite a dry summer, area farmers’ fields are lush with green crops. Bob Durr’s farm in Nikolaevsk is bursting with radishes, peas, zucchinis, beets, kohlrabi, broccoli, purple and lime green cauliflower, romanesco, cucumbers, potatoes and more, mostly in rows more than 100 feet long.
One of the Homer Farmers’ Market’s longest selling produce vendors, Durr has enthusiastically built up quite an extensive farm. He has two fields. The one by his house is stuffed with green houses and high tunnels; the other has three acres under cultivation with plans to cover as much as seven acres with more fields and five more of his 32-by-20-foot greenhouses.
