Farm Happenings for August 12, 2020

Posted on August 6th, 2020
We pick our first slicing tomatoes for you this week and also the first pole beans of the year. Artichokes are on this week's list; a crop we don't always grow, but some mysterious horticultural whimsy made us do some this year. We have been busy preparing ground for our fall plantings of greens and... read more »

Hi, Friends: The farm is a lush and fecund piece of earth right now.  We have many crops ready to harvest, with several drawing near.  It's a challenge each week to decide which items to offer to you, wanting to keep things varied while at the same time making good use of the production we... read more »

We dug our garlic crop last week,  3.5 beds and about 4000 bulbs which we'll meter out to our members over the next many weeks. There was a time on this farm when the digging of the garlic signaled the end of the busy time and the beginning of a slower, more measured period of farm work. Not so... read more »

Hi, Friends: We had a good week with full harvests of many crops: broccoli, cauliflower, garlic, and broccoli Raab, to name a few.  This photo of Angela and Debbie attests to the productivity of the farm, but also to the good heart and great energy of our crew.  We are running our weeding... read more »

The garden is lush with many crops filling out, but several not quite ready for prime time.  Our first crop of bush beans isn't quite there, but the Basil has filled out enough to offer some to you.  We will dig the first carrots of the season, sweet but on the petite side.  Cabbage will... read more »

The farm has really moved into warp drive in the past week.  We are sowing, planting, weeding, building trellises, hoeing and hand weeding, and harvesting an ever larger selection of crops. The frequent wet spells have been mostly beneficial for the crops, but a bit thwarting to the farmers. ... read more »

Hi, Friends: We hope you've been enjoying the harvest thus far. The garden seems to be kicking into a higher gear as we pass the longest day of the year and begin the slow descent down the other side of daylight hill.  We have been busy with virtually every primary farm task: sowing, planting,... read more »

Hi, Friends: The sun finally returned last Wednesday, helping several crops to mature enough to be included in this week's harvest list.  We hope you are enjoying the harvest thus far.  If you have any questions about your share, or are having problems working with the Harvie platform, please... read more »

Hello Members: Quack!  What a WET week!  Harvest was a  labored and slippery event, but the quality of the crops is great. Our pea patch is not the most vigorous we've ever grown, so we are expecting a reduced harvest, but hoping we'll be wrong. The Collards that we added to the list... read more »
