Farm Happenings for August 12, 2019

Posted on August 10th, 2019
A break from the heat and some rain for the garden.  But THANKFULLY NO HAIL!!  We have seen pictures from the Taber area and are so thankful that all we had was a little bit of rain.  It takes only a few minutes to totally wipe out a whole summers worth of work.   Thankfully... read more »

We are loving the heat!!  And the gardens are too! It's been hitting 30 or better nearly every day...and it is showing up in the gardens.  The crops are starting to come nicely. There is a bit more variety entering the weekly baskets.   Remember last year when there was no potatoes... read more »

New Product issues

Posted on July 29th, 2019
It seems like we have some issues when we add a new item to our list. Last week we had a few people get a ton of parsley - when it should only give 1 or 2 of an item. Now with the garlic, it doesn't seem to distribute it evenly either. If you didn't get any - or you got too much - please use the swap... read more »

First Frost? Or Last Frost??

Yup, you read that right!  FROST!! It shouldn't come for at least 6 weeks yet - but Thursday night we had a touch of frost in the gardens.  It's going to be ok - the squash and beans have damage - but we are pretty sure they will still go on to produce.  This actually makes it that we... read more »

The warmth has arrived!  We have been hitting close to or above 30 most days this week.  It means that 5:00 am is a very nice time of day to be working.  It's such a fresh, cool time of the day.  And in the heat of the day we have to cool off in the lake! This summer has seen every... read more »

We are praying for sunshine.  The cold lingers on and the crops are not growing.  It is not very good news to share but it is the truth.  The crops are all waiting in the gardens.  But nothing has grown in the last week at all!! Add to that a few light hail storms - nothing terrible... read more »

Posted on July 1st, 2019
Hello, Summer continues to try it's best to arrive!  With daily rains and cool nights it is a slow go.  I have never seen such a cold, slow spring.  We are very thankful for the greenhouse crops that we are able to share with you from Shirley's Greenhouse.  They do help to fill the... read more »

Posted on June 23rd, 2019
It's been a slow start to the gardens this year.  The cool,rainy weather just seems to stick around and it's slowing the crops down too.  But the good news is that the gardens have never looked better~ the weeds are staying under control~ and that's a huge thing on a vegetable farm!! ... read more »
