Farm Happenings for October 17, 2018

Posted on October 16th, 2018
Thanks for continuing the year with me in the fall share! We finally have some nice weather here on the farm to try to finish up the harvest! The snow finally melted here yesterday and it's a little less muddy in the field than it's been for the last month. I was pretty worried with so many frozen nights... read more »

Last Summer Delivery!

Posted on October 1st, 2018
It's feeling a bit funny declaring this to be the last delivery of the summer share program, since it sure hasn't felt like summer (or even fall) in a few weeks! I had hoped to be able to end the summer season with bigger bags and more variety than I have this year, but I think with the challenging growing... read more »

Farm Happenings for September 18, 2018

Posted on September 17th, 2018
It's been a pretty crazy few weeks on the farm since I wrote an update here. The weather has become pretty unpleasant with one night last week hitting -4C for us and freezing out a few crops that are usually almost guaranteed to be good for the last few deliveries of the summer share! I did manage to... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 21, 2018

Last week sure was a dreary one here on the farm, as I'm sure it was for most everyone throughout the province! The smoke from the B.C. wildfires started really drifting in Tuesday evening and seemed to get progressively worse as the week went on. Somewhat as a relief, the smoke actually kept the temperature... read more »

Not too much different this week. Sadly, we didn't get any of the rain that came through the province on Sunday after such a hot end to last week, but I'm getting as much water to the gardens as I can to help keep everything happy.  Unfortunately the bean pods went papery after that hot weather... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 7, 2018

Posted on August 6th, 2018
We’ve been starting to feel the effects of the dry weather in the last week or so, but luckily we saw a bit or rain on Saturday that helped give all the plants a little break. We’re looking at quite the heat wave in the forecast this week and I’m sure not going to enjoy being in the... read more »

Farm Happenings for July 31, 2018

We have another fine week of new veggies ahead of us! Our friends at Eagle Creek Farms have potatoes and carrots ready at last! We'll have enough of both of those veggies for most of you to get both this week. I always get really excited about the first new potatoes and baby carrots of these season and... read more »

Farm Happenings for July 24, 2018

Posted on July 23rd, 2018
It's hard to believe it's already week 4! I'm happy to say that the fields recovered quite well from the hail and are full of great new growth. The zucchini's were one of the most significantly effected, and I think this week I may just have very small ones which I'll bundle in 2-3 to equal one regular... read more »

Farm Happenings for July 17, 2018

First, I'd like to thank all of you for your patience with me for the first two weeks of the share deliveries. I definitely misestimated my workload for the season and I've ended up working excessively long hours and still running late for everything! I've already taken the steps I need to improve things.... read more »
