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 »

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 »

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 »

We managed to bring in about half the winter squash crop by week's end, washing and packing the squash fruit in the field, before moving them to our propagation house for curing and storage.  We sprayed the dirt off of each squash and then dipped them in sanitized water in an effort to discourage... read more »

We are sobbing a bit around here these days as the onset of Fall begins to shut down our favorite summer treats.  Basil, Tomatoes, Cucumbers, Eggplant, Zucchini, and Peppers are all in their final acts, though the end dates are a bit different for each.  We are excited, though, at the strong... read more »

The air finally cleared Friday and harvest was once again a happy if demanding time.  We hope forecasts of rain prove true, especially for those areas in the West still burning.  For now, we are grateful we can see the gentle curves of Mt. Sumas once again and pull in a deep breath without... read more »

Dear Farmshare members: This will be a difficult harvest this week thanks to the thick and irritating (on many levels) air.  Our crew is willing to work, but concerned for their health, which we understand and share.  Likely, we'll work reduced hours Monday at the least, and possibly Tuesday,... read more »

Farm Happenings for September 9, 2020

We've pulled up the onions from a fog of late season weeds and are pleased to find some sturdy bulbs and a good number of them, too. We've left them on the ground to cure for a few days and will move them into the pole bard to join the garlic brought in last month. A good crop of onions is reassuring... read more »

We are at the height of the summer harvest, the Glorious Season, as Kim once termed it.  We hope the harvest has enriched your summer time gatherings and tickled your palates.  The mornings have grown cool and the daylight arrives and departs sooner, a seeming contradiction to the bounty the... read more »
