Farm Happenings:

The busy time of year is upon us as the farm is in transition, shifting it’s focus from the early summer plantings to the main season crops, and yes, the winter crops too. Over 10,000 plants will be put in the ground over the course of the next two weeks. Overwintering plants that feed us through the winter are looking beautiful in the greenhouse and will soon make their way into the rich soils that will nourish them.

We are quickly mowing in the old plantings and filling the farm with new crops , the farm is constantly in motion. Our overwintering beets and carrots are already in the ground and are sprouting up out of the soil with vigor.

The main season crops are also on their way.  Despite the cool weather the tomatoes are looking healthy with their fruits starting to turn orange soon to deepen into a bright red color as they ripen on the vine. This year we have had a little trouble with our cucurbits (squash, cucumbers), but they are setting their fruits now and will be in abundance shortly.  Learning the new soil composition is proving a challenge, however, things are looking good overall.

The farm is getting cleaned up and ready for the dinner on August 6th. We look forward to you all coming out to see it for yourself!
