Farm Happenings at Hoot Owl Farm

CSA Week #14

Posted on August 12th, 2022
It's week #14, hard to believe isn't it? We're deep in the middle of our next big harvesting task -- onions. We've got a good amount of onions harvested and drying out, and another even better amount still in the field to be harvested early next week. Once the onions have dried for a couple of weeks,... read more »

CSA Week #13 - Customize

Posted on August 10th, 2022
Yay! It's finally tomato time - we're putting a lot more tomatoes into our estimate for next week. We also do some harvesting over the weekend, so sometimes we're able to increase our estimated quantity of certain items. So it's a good idea to check back if what you're looking for was gone initially.  A... read more »

CSA Week #13 - Pick Up

Posted on August 5th, 2022
We're guessing that some of you had some real evidence of just how fresh your shares are after last week's pick up...we harvested the big basil bunches right before packing boxes. We wouldn't be surprised if a couple of you ended up with a previous resident (caterpillar, spider, ladybug...) in your box... read more »

CSA Week #12 - Customize

Posted on August 3rd, 2022
Your customization email is a bit late this week. One reason is that it was SOO hot yesterday, that we went straight to the river after work instead of straight to the internet! But another is so we could finish ironing out the details of a great extra that we have available this week: Flathead Cherries!... read more »

CSA Week #12 - Pick Up

Posted on July 30th, 2022
It's time to pick up! And there are a lot of items to be added on besides what will fit into your box this week, so take a minute to double check us. We try VERY hard to make sure you guys get exactly what you ordered, even creating little checks and balances to keep us paying close attention, but still... read more »

CSA Week #11 - Customize

Posted on July 27th, 2022
Victory! The garlic is harvested and curing as we speak (read?). We also were able to prep and replant the entire garlic block to our fall brassicas (cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower), so we're happy to end the week feeling successful! You won't be seeing garlic as an option yet because we let it cure... read more »

CSA Week #11 - Pick Up

Posted on July 22nd, 2022
Would you just look at that cute little visitor we had to the farm today! Barry's wife Ruth and new puppy Gracie stopped by to say hi and get some pets. Well, it's been a tough week on the farm mainly because of the heat. It's been so hot in the afternoon's that getting through our to do lists for the... read more »

CSA Week #10 - Customize

Posted on July 20th, 2022
Wow, and just like that, we've entered the second half of the CSA season. It's week #10 and time to customize your box for pick up next week. We're starting to get those summertime staples (like cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and peppers), but they're not quite in abundance yet, so you may see some in your... read more »

CSA Week #10 - Pick Up

Posted on July 15th, 2022
It's time to pick up - don't forget! The pic above is of our Walla Walla sweet onions that some of you will find in your boxes this week. They are big and beautiful...and unfortunately not nearly as plentiful as we had planned. Walla Wallas are an overwintering onion that does well around here if you... read more »
