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 »

CSA Week #9 - Customize

This week on the farm was all about control...namely regaining it! If any of you are gardeners, then you know that it's quite a bit easier to deal with weeds when they're small. Once the buggers have grown a bit in size, it's like they're roots have become little fists that won't let go of the soil and... read more »

CSA Week #9 - Pick up

Who can resist a smile like this one, huh? Angelo and his sister Winnie, Mom Robin, and Aunt Ginny were out to visit the farm a couple of weeks ago, and we're just now seeing some of the great pics from their trip. These kids are a couple of carrot monsters, and I really had a hard time finding a few... read more »

Happy 4th of July! We hope you are all have plans to enjoy the weekend in whatever way you choose - I know we plan to celebrate with a good bit of R&R thrown in! The pic above is our attempt at decor for our booth at the market this week for the Stars & Stripes themed day. It's pretty hard to... read more »

CSA Week #8 - Pick Up

Posted on July 1st, 2022
We're often asked how we deal with all of the pest pressure on our farm. The pic above is to prove that though we do have a lot of tricks up our sleeve, we're not always successful. Also...we wanted anyone that has been wishing for some napa cabbage in their box to see why it'll be awhile! This planting... read more »

CSA Week #7 - Customize

Posted on June 29th, 2022
This week has been one with a lot of activity. The market yesterday was our busiest one yet, and we were very glad of the extra hands from our crew to help customers. All week, the hayfield across from the farm has been getting cut, raked and baled so we've been working to the soothing sounds of old... read more »

CSA Week #7 - Pick Up

Gadzukes, it's true! As predicted, the summer squash did start producing this week. So we will have some delectable first zukes at the market tomorrow, and will definitely have some available to go into boxes next week. We'll start off a little bit slow with our harvest estimates, but if we've learned... read more »

CSA Week #6 Customize

Posted on June 22nd, 2022
Well, we just don't know what to think about our prospects for weather. So far this week we've seen near freezing, super hard rain, hot and humid, AND thunder and lightning. I'll tell you what - I'm glad I'm not a plant that needs to suffer through all of it. We do get our fair share of the elements... read more »

CSA Week #6 - Pick Up

Posted on June 17th, 2022
Happy Summer Solstice everyone! It sure did feel like the longest day of the year for us, because Tuesday was our biggest harvest day of the week and we also shifted our hours to start earlier in the day. The intention being to also end earlier in the day, but it doesn't always end up that way! Ready... read more »
