I'm thankful to be in from the field - in clean, dry clothes drinking a warm cup of decaf coffee. I'm writing this on Friday afternoon, and we just wrapped up sweet potato harvest in the cool, misty drizzle. I can't help but love this time of year. The cooler weather, the fall colors, and the shorter... read more »

Another week, another adventure! Thursday morning, we lost our phone, internet, coolbot (our cooler), and some lights when lightning struck somewhere on the farm.

Fall is in the air! We're relishing in the change of seasons - the cooler air, the shortening of days, and the flavors of fall.

This week, we completed one of our last field plantings for the year. Head lettuce and kohlrabi were transplanted, and we direct seeded spinach and salad mix.

Summer Share: Week 12

It seems like this week is the peak of summer produce - watermelons, cantaloupes, sweet corn, and tomatoes. The shares will be heavy this week!  In our kitchen, we're turning our minds toward preserving the harvest. We've frozen sweet corn and started to preserve tomatoes. We freeze roasted tomatoes... read more »
