Farm Happenings for December 9, 2020

Posted on November 29th, 2020
We began the 2020 farm season very unceremoniously on February 3rd when Deb and Ashley made our first sowings of the season: lettuce, Bok Choi, Spinach, Broccoli, Kale, and several other crops. It was a grayish day and damp, as befits late winter, and yet we were all excited in our collective knowledge... read more »

With the end of the season clearly in sight, we at the farm all seem to have a touch of melancholy.  Not only has the weather been often gray and dim, but we can't help lamenting the end of another growing season. As all consuming and daunting as feeding 400+ families each week often felt, we enjoyed... read more »

Farm Happenings for November 18, 2020

Posted on November 13th, 2020
The fall vibe deepens: chilly mornings, pervasive dampness even when rain is absent, a general dimness that resolves to gloom by nightfall.  Quiet seems the dominant state, where we all go about our tasks of harvesting, cleanup, crop protection, and even  packing csa shares with little commentary... read more »

Farm Happenings for November 11, 2020

Posted on November 6th, 2020
Thanks to mild weather and fairly dry conditions we've managed to bring in one more nice harvest of cauliflower, broccoli raab, celery, and swiss chard. Some crops continue to slowly fill out, such as leeks and brussels sprouts, while others seem to struggle to just maintain themselves in fair condition. ... read more »

Farm Happenings for November 4, 2020

Posted on October 30th, 2020
We are basking in some lovely fall weather these past days, brisk in the morning and bright throughout the day, with accents of crimson, orange, and yellow from the many deciduous trees that edge our fields. We've started the fall cleanup work, pulling out spent rows of tomatoes and peppers, rolling... read more »

Farm Happenings for October 28, 2020

Posted on October 25th, 2020
We are relieved to report that the garden escaped the hard frost that was predicted for this weekend.  It turned cold, but not as severely so as we had feared might hit us.  So for another week, we have tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant to offer, as well as other semi tender crops such as Celery... read more »

Farm Happenings for October 21, 2020

Posted on October 17th, 2020
Later this week it's predicted to dip into the low 30's, so we'll be pulling out all of the row cover fabric we have available and installing it over as many sensitive crops as we can.  We'll go through the tomato, pepper, and eggplant beds and pull off everything that looks good (all have been... read more »

Farm Happenings for October 14, 2020

Posted on October 10th, 2020
We are wondering when the first killing frost will arrive.  For many years we held October 11th as the arrival date our first killing fall frosts.  If we wanted to have peppers, tomatoes, cucumbers, and the like for a final harvest, we tried to pick them clean before this date.  For hardier,... read more »
