Farm Happenings for September 27, 2022 - A nocturnal horror story

Posted on September 24th, 2022
To the casual observer, you wouldn't even guess that it is coming. A sunny, crisp clear fall day. Chilly yes, but with the day-lit warmth and a light fall coat, it is a pleasure to be outside. But to those of us whose lives are spent in the field we know it is here. There is an urgency in our movements... read more »

Farm Happenings for September 20, 2022

Posted on September 17th, 2022
Silly thoughts that go through my head as we progress down the beds of Romas.. Maybe we should offer a course entitled 'How to Pick Properly' I thought to myself as we crawled along, picking. People could sign up for the course at $199 which is only $169 if you apply the easily accessible dicount code.  Musing... read more »

Farm Happenings for the week of September 13, 2022 - the delivery

Posted on September 10th, 2022
"Your destination is on your left" She turned and smiled at me and with all the power of an attractive woman who is well situated she asked in the sweetest way possible, "Michael will you deliver your vegetables to me?" And just like that I entered the world of logistics.  Back then it was simpler.... read more »

A Farm Happening for the September 7th Farm Stand

Posted on September 4th, 2022
So as we continue to develop our Farm Stand I thought it prudent to expand on how to participate should there be interest.

Farm Happenings for September 6, 2022

Posted on September 3rd, 2022
Over the many years I have spent cultivating vegetables I have come to believe that everyone of them possess a personality that is their own.  For example, lettuce is your fair weather friend. She is flush and green until the weather needle moves to anthing that might be extreme and then she quickly... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 30, 2022

Posted on August 27th, 2022
So this is a superfast update as share building was late getting out of the gate today. Basically, things to pay attention to:  We have some super amazing cabbage this week. Bell Peppers have colour. The fresh onions are gorgous. Last of the Fish Lake Garlic but there will be a milder variety... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 23, 2022

Posted on August 20th, 2022
A bit shy to share this story, but it is somehow perfect for this week. This is our 9th year.   I had reason to drop go back and deliver to a home that now picks up.  For some reason, in the frantic pace of a season I hadn't connected the dots despite having this fine family being along... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 16, 2022 - The Field

Posted on August 13th, 2022
It was over 10 years ago now, just about this time of year when I first laid eyes on her and caught my breathe. Casting my eyes over her graceful and quiet expanse I could hear her beckoning.  I pulled the car over and let the dogs out and started to stride through the long grass moving deeper... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 9, 2022 - Introducing the Volunteers

Posted on August 6th, 2022
It was over 3 years ago now. Late September.  The weather was colder than advertized and on Tuesday, the frost came like a bully, as close as you could possibly be without actually damaging anything. An icy scare for sure, with the promise of it coming back with a vengence on Thursday. At that time... read more »
