Posted on August 20th, 2021
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. Bonnie's cousin Mali showed up for work while visiting, and ended up harvesting cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, potatoes and LOTS of onions - a well rounded visit for sure -- Thanks, Mali!! We have... read more »

Ahh Cartman...what a useful addition to the Hoot Owl team this little golf cart has been this year! He hauls flats of seedlings out to the field every week to be planted, he hauls produce in from the field to be washed, he hauls huge loads of crop debris and weeds to the compost pile, and this week we... read more »

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 »

Pick up time! Don't forget to grab your produce box this week at your pick up location. The challenge of this week turned out to be having a power outage on our main harvest day. Tuesday is when we harvest a wash a lot of bunches and greens, so having water and a functioning cooler are pretty important...well,... read more »

Garlic Harvest complete! Yes! We all took turns yanking and pulling over the past couple of days and got that garlic harvested and moved over to the curing area. We're looking forward to the scent of garlic wafting over the farm for the next couple of weeks, and I bet we'll find reasons to pass through... read more »

Edward Cucumberhands does NOT want you to miss your pick up this week! It's looking like it doesn't matter which, market or on farm, it's likely to be HOT! That's ok, we're all used to it by now right?! We're excited to have some flowers for the market tomorrow. Especially since it's the one week vacation... read more »
