Farm Happenings for October 15, 2019

Posted on October 10th, 2019
It’s just that season.  The one where all the impossible task lists shrink to questions of whether or not we have enough work for everyone (we do).  The one where naps seem like more of a possibility.  The one where the most pressing issue is what to be for Halloween.  It’s... read more »

Farm Happenings for October 8, 2019

Posted on October 3rd, 2019
I want to excuse my sentence with an apology for being “master of the obvious”, however, it is not at all obvious that it is October 1st today.  I mean, huh?  I try really hard not to complain about the heat so that I don’t feel bad complaining about the cold, and  know... read more »

Farm Happenings for October 1, 2019: Autumn

Posted on September 26th, 2019
And so we arrive, floating on the gentle evening breezes of late September, into autumn.  The days are layered into neat stacks of seasons with the mornings bundled in the sweatshirts and winter hats of late winter, the mid-days coated in the sweat of summer, and the evenings a slow unfurling of... read more »

Farm Happenings for September 24, 2019: Living in the preservation moment

Posted on September 19th, 2019
I hear a lot about living in the moment. And complaints about how cell phones and their evolution into miniature computers has none of us living in the moment.  To be fair, I do think my “device” has changed my brain a little bit.  I mean, all of my lists are kept there, and my... read more »

Last week of the main season harvest shares:(

Posted on September 5th, 2019
How did we get here?  The final main season harvest share!?  When our production shrinks a bit and also our farmily.  When we begin the first bits of "destruction season".  When the nights cool down enough to open windows and sleep beneath a blanket.  Somehow, in the blink of... read more »

Time to sign up for the fall shares and other musings

Gah! It's September!  How did this happen? Only 1 more week of the main season harvest share:(  So...if you haven't already, now is the time to sign up for a fall share before we get filled up (we don't grow as much in the fall so we don't have as many shares available and they tend to sell... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 27, 2019

Posted on August 22nd, 2019
Finally the sweet corn that we've been waiting all summer for!  Just in time for labor day! Still in a lull in tomato production though. When it’s cold in the winter, and we are tucked safely indoors with the heat and the hot chocolate and the pretty Christmas lights, it’s easy to romanticize... read more »

Posted on August 15th, 2019
We're still in hot pursuit of organic sweet corn.  They are now telling us the end of August.  I haven't eaten sweet corn all summer because I was counting on this sweet corn.  Alas.  Sigh.  The story on tomatoes: Well, some of our earlier neglect when we were short staffed... read more »
