Here we roll! Summer Week #5

Posted on July 9th, 2020
Now it's really getting exciting!  More and more crops are ripening each week with more on deck soon.  This week we have a number of new offerings including kohlrabi, carrots, bell peppers, cucumbers, and basil.  And this is just the beginning!  And hopefully, all this hot weather... read more »

Summer Week #4

Posted on July 2nd, 2020
We've been deep in the tomato trenches, trellising and making sure we can get to all the juicy tomatoes once they've ripened.  We're filthy when we're done, but it's very delicious smelling work. read more »

Summer Week #3

Posted on June 25th, 2020
We had a very disappointing vine patch last year - the squash bugs decimated almost everything! - and so we've vowed to beat them this year!  They may have one a war, but we will win the battle!!  And we are!!  We've planted a larger vine patch than ever so we have plenty of room between... read more »

Summer Week 2... Summertime here we come!

Posted on June 18th, 2020

Spring into Summer: Spring Week #6

Posted on June 4th, 2020
Somehow it's the last week of our Spring season... how did that happen?!  As we harvested this week, we were discussing how grateful we were for what we get to do.  All the craziness throughout the world right now is sobering, yet it reminds us how grateful we are for our quiet little farm... read more »

Spring Week #5

Posted on May 29th, 2020
It's spring for just a couple of weeks, soon to be summer, and yet we're getting ready for fall.  We've got to stay a step or two ahead of the seasons, otherwise they're here before we know it.  Zoey's been curious about our new pumpkin patch.  All the rows of water look so fun to play... read more »

Spring Week #4: Planting, and planting, and planting, Oh My!

Posted on May 22nd, 2020
The wind has slowed down our planting plans somewhat but we're still on target to get the bulk of our warm-season crops in throughout the next two weeks.  It's a race against time (and the weather) so we can give the crops as much time as possible to grow and develop.  We've got all the tomatoes... read more »
