Farm Happenings for October 16, 2019

Posted on October 13th, 2019
This is the final Share deliver for the Regular Season Shares!  The crew and I were talking about it last week and it seems like just a few weeks ago we were transplanting, putting the first seeds in the ground and seeding in the greenhouse.  Then, all of a sudden we've gone through the entire... read more »

It definitely feels like Fall now!  At the beginning of last week it was still pretty warm and humid but towards the end we were starting to wear stocking caps and gloves in the mornings.  The tomatoes are starting to slow (as are the Sweet/Hot Peppers and Eggplant) but I think we are still... read more »

It was great to finally start harvesting a beet crop!  Although I personally am not a big fan of beets it is fun to pull one up out of the ground and see how big the root actually is!  Been hearing from a lot of farmer friends that they had horrible luck getting beets to germinate and we experienced... read more »

Farm Happenings for September 25, 2019

Posted on September 22nd, 2019
Hopefully after today (Sunday 9/22) we'll get a bit of respite from both the rain and the humidity!  I can't remember any September in past seasons when we've had a heat index top 100 degrees but it happened this year!  The heat and rain have been great for the crops but makes it awful hard... read more »

I know in the last couple of emails I have said how it is really feeling like Fall but.. I take it back except that the days are definitely getting shorter!  ThLast week was awful warm and humid for this time of year and it looks like the forecast for next week is predicting the same.  While... read more »

It is definitely starting to feel like Fall!  I went out to Ledges State Park on a hike this morning and really started to notice the leaves changing color.  I also noticed a few trees dropping their leaves while still green.  This is a sign that the trees are stressed out and are dropping... read more »

It's really starting to feel like Fall as the nights are getting longer, the leaves are starting to change color and I saw my first small Pod (flock) of Brown Pelicans at Saylorville Lake today!  But it still feels like the beginning of Summer based on what we are harvesting now, so I feel all confused... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 28, 2019

Posted on August 25th, 2019
It's hard for me to believe that August has almost ended as I don't pay attention to the calendar much and in past seasons have been able to know what month it is from what we are harvesting!  But this season, with the later than planned plantings of Summer Crops because of the wet Spring, we are... read more »
