Rudy and Cartman waiting out a downpour today with a load of winter squash. We pulled into the wash pack to stay dry until we could unload the harvest into the curing area. Friday was another good harvest day, we finished the onion harvest, and got another good load of potatoes and winter squash out... read more »

Potatoes and onions are out of the ground, and more cover crop seed is in. Things are happening how they're supposed to, and we're going to do what we can to continue the trend!

It's been a major harvest week for us and we were really glad to have an extra hand on deck for a little bit.

What a nice rain we had! Almost feels like we're in an alternate universe these past couple of cooler days. We are liking it quite a bit, and so is the cover crop that we seeded. Timing couldn't be better there, our only wish is that we had more blocks prepped and seeded to take advantage of this passive... read more »

Well, this secret smiley face in the salad mix didn't turn out as perfect as Bonnie intended it when she sneakily laid out the transplants in a pattern. But you get the idea, and the wilty lettuce head is sort of like a gap tooth or something, adds character, right?! It sure was nice to get some rain... read more »
