We continue to plant every week despite the fact that we are nearly at the shortest day of the year!  We are working on getting new transplants ready for replacing lettuce in our greenhouse in January.  We are also deep into planning for next year which includes putting together our big seed... read more »

 We are onto some of our final big jobs of the fall which include moving one of our hoophouses over top of our last leek crop.  These leek will be dug all winter and the hoophouse keeps the soil from freezing solid.  Then after the leek are harvested, we will be able to plant an extra... read more »

Believe it or not, our lettuce will be coming from the field this week!  This is likely the last week and then we move into our unheated hoophouses for lettuce and salad mixes.  Our greenhouse crop is looking good too but we probably won't harvest in there until Christmas. But outside we've... read more »

Some early snow on the farm, but we are still pulling a lot of veggies out of the field.  For a lot of items that are a bit cold sensitive (like swiss chard and choi) this is likely the end of outdoor harvest for them this week.  But we have plenty of stuff growing strong in our greenhouse... read more »

It's parsnip season on Common Ground Farm! While the hard frosts last week meant the end of some of our summer favourites, the cold weather is great for autumn veggies like parsnips and napa (featured this week).

Wind and rain and weather, doesn't matter whether! Despite the less than comfortable conditions this week we are still going strong in the fields here on Common Ground Farm. Our winter harvest list is winding down though, with the last of the storage radishes and turnips in the photo, and the rest of... read more »

The crisp mornings (and our cold hands!) tell us that fall weather has finally arrived. On the farm this week we're focusing on finishing our storage carrot harvest as well as beginning to bulk harvest winter radishes. This week we're featuring choi -- baby, green, and white-ribbed. They're all perfect... read more »
