Pop-Up Week #19 - Pick Up

Posted on September 16th, 2022
We had a wonderful time at the Harvest Festival this past weekend - it was a beautiful day made all the more so by the smoke finally lifting and giving us some clean clear air to breathe deeply! While, the forecast says that tomorrow may not be quite as beautiful, we will be at the Farmers Market r1 read more »

CSA Week #18 - Customize

Posted on September 14th, 2022
Well folks, this is it...the final week of the CSA season! And in true last week fashion, we spent the afternoon doing some preparation for possible frost tonight. The pic above shows our dahlia patch (some of which are only just starting to bloom, so it'd be nice to get them through the first fros1 read more »

The dahlia frost protection worked great...in that after going through the effort of putting it up, it didn't frost! Ah well, if that's the way the universe works, then it's well worth putting up some unused protection. So the dahlias live on and many are destined for the Harvest Festival this Satu1 read more »

The last few times we've planted lettuces have been on these LONG 100' beds, it sure is nice to have less beds to plant, but as we've all noted it's a whole different feeling looking down the line at what you have left to go when it's so far away! It's week #17 which means for some of you, it could1 read more »

Po-ta-toes! Boil em, mash em, stick em in a stew...anyone else always hear this line from Fellowship of the Ring when they see potatoes!? Well, we still aren't totally finished with the potato harvest, but we are getting there and have plenty of them for your boxes this week and for market as well.1 read more »

Now we know that some of you have been lugging some pretty heavy shares these last few weeks, but we don't know if we've seen any more impressive picker uppers than these gals. They're often grabbing two shares, sometimes even three, always with big smiles and lots of muscles!! Thanks for letting u1 read more »

Making gladiolus and dahlia bunches is a nice end to the day on Wednesdays! Our glads are starting to slow down as most of them have bloomed (they are a one cut type of flower), but our dahlias are really ramping up (when you cut a dahlia, the plant bushes and grows more!). So we should be able to1 read more »

Well here's a good pic of most of the crew for a before market lunch on Thursday. Not many of us had heard about the traditional Italian snack of melon & prosciutto (or shall I say, Prosciutto e Melone). So we were in for a real treat when Hans and Mark treated us all to the dish with a melon s1 read more »

It's pick up time! If you've somehow missed out on melons thus far, be sure to grab one at the market or at the Amish Farm to Market Store. They are plentiful this week, but all melon-seasons must come to an end and this one will certainly end before we're ready to quit eating them! We are making p1 read more »
