So Long Spring Season!

Posted on June 14th, 2021
Our final share of the season is upon us. It's been a wild ride this spring, but it's been a pleasure to have you with us. From the bottom of our little lesbian hearts, Cheryl and I want to express how grateful we are that you've supported this crazy farm endeavor we cooked up. We honestly would not... read more »

Final Share!

Posted on June 11th, 2021
This is the last week of our farm share before our summer hiatus! We're starting to turn beds over to cover crop to rest them for the summer. It's been a long, challenging spring and we're about ready for a rest ourselves. This final share is loaded with all the summer goodies. We have slicing tomatoes... read more »

Garlic and Onions and Tomatoes Oh My

Posted on June 7th, 2021
Oh yes, we've got slicing tomatoes from Poché Family Farm, and so so much more this week. Butter lettuce, garlic, hot peppers, shishito peppers, eggplants, cukes, herbs, the list goes on. This is the second to last week of shares before we go on our summer break and we're really going out with... read more »

Garlic!!

Posted on June 3rd, 2021
It's garlic time! Who's excited!? There's so much food for you right now, it's hard to imagine that in just a few weeks we're shutting things down for the summer. We'll be seeding a lot of cover crop in the next few weeks as we finish up with veggie beds. We need a break and so does our soil.  In... read more »

Eggplants R Us

Posted on May 31st, 2021
My number one summer crop: Eggplants. They are showing up in full force for the start of the Extension (or should I say Eggstension?) Season. We've got a fun variety for y'all to try - long and skinny, short and skinny, traditional Italian fatties. I've been really into roasting the Japanese eggplants... read more »

Welcome to Summer

Posted on May 28th, 2021
Welcome to our 3-week Extended Spring season before our summer break! It's really starting to heat up at the farm, and there's a lot of stuff out there that's just soaking it up. The next few weeks at the farm will be spent harvesting and prepping for our summer break with cover crop seeding and sweet... read more »

Season Extension Starts Next Week

Posted on May 24th, 2021
Believe it or not, we've reached the end of our originally scheduled 19-week Spring Season Farm Share. We're grateful to you all for being a part of this very soggy few months! And just as the weather is (just barely) starting to feel like actual New Orleans summer, we're starting to pull in more and... read more »

Last Week before Extended Season

Posted on May 21st, 2021
It's been a long, soggy, muddy Spring season, and it's hard to believe that we've made it to the last week of the original share! It hasn't been easy, but we're always grateful to get to do this work and feed y'all, so we're not complaining. As you hopefully know, our three-week Extended Season begins... read more »

Blueberries Make Everything Better

Posted on May 17th, 2021
It's the best time of the year: Blueberry season is here! We've got blueberries from Faust Farm in the extras section, plus their cherry tomatoes in shares. The relatively cool weather has extended our shoulder season so we're still harvesting a variety of beautiful salad and cooking greens while fun... read more »
