CSA Week 11

It’s raining! Can you believe it? I mean, really raining. Like, for over 24 hrs raining, not the 15 minute battering rains we’ve had this summer. It’s terrific! I would have liked it a little earlier in the season, but beggars can’t be choosers!

Despite the drought, we have a nice basket this week!

  • Eggplant
  • Acorn Squash
  • Cilantro Bunch
  • Ho Miz (Mustard greens)
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • 3lbs Rutgers tomatoes
  • 2 lbs roma tomatoes
  • 2 lbs cherry and pear tomatoes
  • 2lbs string beans
  • 4lbs potatoes
  • purple and yellow onion
  • Leeks
  • green bell pepper
  • mixed greens
  • cucumbers (Last of the season!)

Now, you know what rainy days at the farm mean? Tomato Canning day!

CSA Week 9

Well, it’s been hot and dry. Unfortunately, that means none of my seeds are sprouting, because I can’t keep them moist, and all of my transplants are dying because they get scorched before they can establish. Luckily, we did get about an hours worth of rain today, so it gave me one day off from watering. It looks like we won’t have anymore lettuce and carrots until things cool down a bit. Regardless, we have a pretty nice basket of goodies this week!

  • Pickling cucumbers
  • Regular cucumbers
  • Zucchini
  • Yellow Squash
  • 3lbs Yukon gold potatoes
  • 1lb mixed beans
  • 1/2lb cherry and pear tomatoes
  • Purple onion
  • Yellow onion
  • Banana Pepper
  • Jalapenos
  • Carrots
  • Eggplant

Our Roma tomatoes are starting to turn! Spaghetti sauce soon!

…and Cucumbers!

Right now they are trickling in; enough for the CSA members, and ourselves. But this time next week we’ll be swimming in them. So if you’re interested, let us know!

We’ve also got raspberries….ooooohhhh the raspberries. Sadly, between the birds and bugs, we only have a handful everyday. But what a treat it is on the way to the garden! Someday, we’ll have enough to share.

The peppers are starting. Below is a green bell. Yum!

Our beans are climbing, and the purple one’s are actually flowering!

This has the be the earliest pie pumpkin I’ve ever grown.

Our buckwheat cover crop almost ready to till in. I’m running out of room, so I need more beds!

The onions are looking hardy!

Knee-high by the Fourth of July? Oh, yes.

Things are beginning to look lush around here! It’s most definitely summer!

Check back soon!
