The shares just keep getting better. Today we have Samantha red leaf lettuce, abundant bloomsdale spinach, 5 color silverbeet (aka chard) bunches, hakurei turnips, french breakfast radishes, green onions, flat leaf parsley, sugar snap peas and the first carrots of the year! Thursday may see a slightly different share this week. It’s likely there’ll be… Continue reading Spring, week 5
Here’s a little tour of what’s happening in the fields and in the greenhouse this time of year. I’m looking forward to looking back on all of these at the end of the year as a group. Search back through the blog now if you want to see the last few months and how far… Continue reading June video farm tour
In today’s share: hakurei turnips, French breakfast radishes, snow peas, fennel, hearts of romaine and green crisp lettuce, yellow collards, garlic scapes. Lots of new stuff this week. The lettuce are nice dense hearts as we had a bit of damage to the outer leaves. Peas are coming on slowly with the cool weather and… Continue reading Spring, week 4
Garlic scapes look like they’ll be ready, as does the fennel. Peas are so close and I’m guessing we’ll be picking the first ones by Monday. The collard greens are looking good for our bunching green. We should have a few new radishes, more salad turnips, more lettuce and possibly more green onions as well.… Continue reading Week 4 share predictions
Today’s share was a little different than predicted, but with some nice new items: rainbow lacinato kale, jester lettuce, green onions, pink beauty radishes, first pinch of genovese basil, green garlic, hakurei turnips, basic arugula. I had predicted romaine but we had a bit of insect damage compounded by burning from a boron feeding we… Continue reading Week 3 of spring shares
After looking over the farm yesterday I will attempt to predict next week’s share: romaine lettuce, napa cabbage, rainbow lacinato kale, green garlic, green onions are all pretty sure to be in there; possible items are more radishes and arugula, salad turnips, fennel, and even maybe the first pinch of basil! Tune in Monday to… Continue reading Preview of week three
Last week’s share was featured on our Facebook and Instagram accounts (a little late) but I forgot to post it to the blog. As a matter of record, here it was. Today’s share: arugula, lettuce, choi, sage flowers, favs greens, chive blossoms, green garlic and spinach. Pretty good start to the season. I’ll try to… Continue reading Week 1, a week late
Today’s share: abundant bloomsdale spinach, pink beauty radishes, Nash’s green kale, 5 color silverbeet (aka chard), green garlic, jester lettuce, basic arugula. Lots of great greens again this week and a bit of radish and garlic too. Even the radish greens are good eating, a bit sharp for some but excellent cooked down. Remember to… Continue reading Spring, Week 2
Two videos this month: a late afternoon walk through the fields and a quick greenhouse tour. Enjoy!
It was beautiful on the farm yesterday and I had a free moment so I shot another video field walk. I did manage to get the potatoes and spinach in by the end of the day. Also, not in the video but in a remote spot, we fertilized and cultivated the garlic yesterday and it’s… Continue reading April Field Walk (a few days early)
Here’s the first field walk video. I’m hoping these will give our CSA members, and anyone else who’s interested, a little insight into what happens behind the scenes. The harvest photos show the beautiful results, these videos will probably show some of the work, successes and even set backs that go into getting to the… Continue reading March Field Walk Video
Our first video update for the farm! My goal is to get one or two of these out each month. Look for a field version some time next week.
