Happy Winter Snow everyone!!

Note: Only two weeks left of the 2015 season!! Last veggie pick up will be December 12th!! Pickup time is now 11:00am to 2:00pm!!!

Note: Help!!We need a few more bags of leaves for our garlic..Please keep us in mind as you rake or if your neighbors have bags sitting on the curb for the city to pick up..FYI neighbors may be grateful to you for snagging their leaves..apparantly the city charges to pick them up!!

NOTE: Time for another payment!

Hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving!! Ours was awesome with lots of family and entirely too much feast!! The weather the last two weeks has been getting steadily cooler..Thanksgiving week was not too bad..mostly sunny but did get about an inch of snow. Saturday pickup was nice and sunny..Sunday was mostly cloudy but not too much snow until night. We wake up Monday morning to a winter wonderland..had at least 4 inches of snow..probably closer to 5. Monday night somebody turned off the heat!! We were a whopping 4 degrees Tuesday morning..and didn't warm up much all day..we might have barely gotten up to freezing!! Sunny and warming just a few degrees everyday the rest of the week. Had lots of cloud cover today but got up to about 47 with a nighttime low of 22..not too bad for the first week of December!!

Our outdoor adventures are just about finished for the season. Amazingly enough we got most of the roots harvested and the garlic planted before Thanksgiving!! I wasn't sure we were going to make it..since we didn't get started on it until after the first of November..Our first hard fall frost was soooo late!! But, thanks to a lot of good help from our farm family.. family, work share folks and CSA members.. it all cam together..THANKS everyone for a job well done!! This past week we didn't do much except shovel snow, read seed catalogs and books{yes, seed catalogs are starting to come in..we are starting to get fun ideas for next year!!} until Wednesday..then we worked on digging the last of the roots from the feild{parsnips} mulching the garlic{need a few more leaves to finish off that project!!}, covering and building a goosey fence around next springs carrots{yes,those rotten geese know how to dig their own carrots!!} and getting veggies ready for tomorrow. 

I am working on adding up crop records and getting the website set up for 2016 CSA signup..was planning on doing it early in the week but I kept hearing those seed catalogs and a good book calling..

FYI CSA shares make awesome gifts whether from our farm or one of our farmer friends in the valley..healthy people, healthy planet, healthy farmers..it's a win-win for everyone!! 

Updates on our little birdie friends...

NOTE: Della has some of the ducks and geese for sale now..please check with her if you are interested..

 new little chickies  are just about 28 weeks old..getting a few more eggs from them now

Old little chickies are almost 40 weeks old now.

New duckies are 36 weeks old now..still enjoying the snow..especially when it melts off their roof.

Little Miss did it!! Now have 7 or 8 little goslings that are 27 weeks old. We let the birds out into the garden after we have everything harvested..they clean up all sorts of crops residues and turn it into a bit fertilizer. They spent their first day out in the fields today..they were so excited..once they got out there it was hard for them to decide just where to start!!

new baby duckies are now 19 weeks old!! We have a theory{and we are sticking to it!!} The ducks with the big feet are the boys..the ones with the smaller feet are the girls!! Della did try to do her bead thing this week but the duckies kept trying to eat her bead!! Don't know what the bead thing is..ask Della and she can show you how it works..same principle as dowsing for water..pretty cool!!

Happy Thanksgiving everyone!!

Note: Only four weeks left of the 2015 season!! Last veggie pick up will be December 12th!! Pickup time is now 11:00am to 2:00pm!!!

Note: Sunday workday for is this coming Sunday November 22. Our goal is to get the rest of the garlic in!! .please come join us..we will be starting about 9:00 am and going until we get dome done!! 

NOTE: Time for another payment!

Well, we liked the weather Saturday and Sunday..both days were sunny with a bit of chill but nothing major..fine fall weather. By Sunday evening the clouds had rolled in and it was raining..woke up Monday morning to snow..snowed off and on all morning..then snowed some more overnight..ended up with 2-3 inches of really wet white stuff!! Tuesday tried the clouds tried to clear out..several times..would look like it was clearing and we'd go outside to work and the clouds would just roll back in..no precipitation but windy and COLD..I think our high was almost 35. Wednesday was a bit warmer but off and on again clouds with a wee bit of sun. Thursday was sunny most of the day and quite warm..in the 50's. Today was another of those off and on days..a bit of sun here..a lot of clouds there..more sun..then more clouds..was warm though into the 50's again. The weekend looks like we should have some sunshine. Another storm coming our way about mid-week, though.

Our last cooking demo of the season went well..lots of yummy stuff to do with fall veggies. It seemed like more folks hung around, chatted, and shared ideas of what they do with the veggies than the previous 2..not sure why. some ideas might be it was fall and not so many other things going on..new thing we did this year and it was the 3rd one and more folks were aware of what we were doing..any other ideas would be appreciated..why did YOU stick around or not?? And feedback on whether we should do more demos next season..we need your ideas!!

Please help us thank Kat for making our produce shine!! She took home our veggies and turned them into awesome tasty meals!! 

Our workday Sunday was awesome..nice and sunny with just a touch of chill, had an great crew and we got 2 beds of garlic planted!! Just have 2 more to go!! Thank you to Joyce and Scott for coming out to help!! Didn't do too much Monday and Tuesday except watch it snow..checked out the first 3 seed catalogs, read, drank lots of tea, just chilled. Wednesday we had to bite the bullet and get going on harvesting..harvested about 150 lbs of beets out of the snow and got some ready for veggie pickup tomorrow and the rest into storage. Thursday we harvested more stuff for veggie pickup in the melting snow and mud..parsnips, mangols, sugar beets, carrots, leeks, sunchokes, and the last of the brussel sprouts and cabbage. We even managed to get most of it ready to chill!! Today we harvested greens in the high tunnel and got all those roots demudded !! Thank you Sally for coming out to harvest in the snow Thursday!!

Please help us thank Lindsay and all our workshare folks..Terry, April, Chris, Tami, and Corina for hanging in there in there and harvesting lots of roots!!

Well, it keeps getting colder!! It was nice and sunny a good bit of the week, but had a hard time getting much above 40..with lows down into the high teens..brrrr. Our only non sunny day was Wednesday..started raining Tuesday evening..just about time for evening chores..then sometime during the night it changed to snow!! We woke up to about 1/2 inch of that cold white stuff!! The sun was VERY reluctant to show it's face until we were all done harvesting in the early afternoon. Looks like it will stay sunny until Monday..a storm is supposed to blow in sometime Sunday evening..looks like we may get another little bit of snow. Then it is supposed to clear out and be sunny again..cold but sunny!!

This week we worked on getting beds ready for garlic and harvesting fall roots for storage. So far we have radishes, turnips, rutabaga, kohlrabi, about 1/2 the beets and a few carrots stored away. This next week we will be working on planting garlic and harvesting more roots..beets, carrots, parsnips, sunchokes, and whatever else we find out there!!

 

Please help us thank Lindsay and all our workshare folks..Terry, April, Chris, Tami, and Corina for hanging in there in there and harvesting lots of roots!!

Happy Fall everyone!!

Note: Only six weeks left of the 2015 season!! Last veggie pick up will be December 12th!! Pickup time is now 11:00am to 2:00pm!!!

NOTE: Time for another payment!!

Note! note! note! Looks like our last cooking demo with Kat with be November 14!! We need to confirm the date and decide what time..probably about 11 am.

Well, I think winter is on it's way!! The week started out much dryer with lots of sun..by Wednesday it was over!! It started raining Tuesday night..was pouring about 6 Wednesday morning..drizzled most of the morning while we were harvesting all those fall roots..the sun came out briefly in the afternoon. Thursday we had our first snow flurries of the season..not a great amount but everything from sleet to great huge snowflakes. Today it was supposed to be clear and sunny..well it wasn't..a few brief bits of sun but otherwise cloudy and cold with a few bits of snow. I think our high for today was maybe 43..supposed to be way cold tonight..forecast is calling for about 18..brrrr!!! 

This week we spent our time harvesting potatoes and getting that area ready for garlic, harvesting lots of fall roots, and moving our veggie washing operation into the high tunnel. Potato harvest is once again very disappointing..need to come up with a different game plan for the potatoes next season..we changed it a bit this spring..used beds that haven't had nightshades for about 6 years, didn't plant them as intensively and gave them special fertilizer..but they still were not real happy. Not sure what is going on..it may be the cooler season and all the rain..could be insect or weed pressure..could be a disease problem that we haven't ever had before. Until the last couple years we haven't had too much of a problem with the taters..almost always had bumper crops despite the bugs and weeds!! Have one more bed to go..then it's on to garlic planting!! We've been slowly harvesting fall roots to get into storage but haven't been pushing it too much cause the weather has been so nice..looks like this next week we will be harvesting LOTS of roots!! We pulled out the sweet peppers this week to make way for the sinks, tables, coolers, and whatever else we use when we are getting your veggies ready for you. It was Soooo much nicer playing in the water this morning!! It's going to take us a while to get used to the veggie shed..it looks so different without everything in it and the shade cloth rolled up!!

Please help us thank Lindsay and all our workshare folks..Terry, April, Chris, Tami, and Corina for hanging in there in our not so delightful weather!!!

Please help us welcome Lindsay..our fall intern to Montrose!! She is a delightful young lady from New Jersey.

Note! note! note! Looks like our last cooking demo with Kat with be November 14!! We need to confirm the date and decide what time..probably about 11 am.

Well, fall has hit the farm the last 2 weeks. Last week it rained a good bit of the week..then cleared off just a bit and we got our first fall frost Friday night..we were down to about 28. This last week was nice and sunny a good bit of the weekend then rained most of Monday. Sunny Tuesday and Wednesday..hard frost Tuesday night..down to 26. Cloudy most of the day yesterday and rained much of today..I think our high for today is in the low 40's. Looks like we might have some sunshine this weekend but much rain with a possibility of snow late this coming week. 

Last week we tried to stay dry..worked up until Thursday..that's the day we start major picking for the weekend..poured down rain most of the morning..did lighten up a bit in the afternoon..still rained but it was just a drizzle!! If you happen to see Terry, Lindsay or Chris help us thank them for slogging through harvest!! We were all very wet and cold before the end of the day. Friday was dryer but still cold..please help us thank Lindsay, Terry, Tami, and Corina for helping us finish up getting everything we harvested Thursday ready for you Saturday Morning!! This week was a bit dryer..still cold..we just are not ready for it..we got very spoiled with all those sunny days last month!! The frosts pretty much took out all our warm season goodies..they look so sad and brown out in the fields. But all our fall goodies came through with flying colors..they look so green and vibrant against the brown of the warm season stuff!!

Thank you Kat for coming out and helping weed all our fall greens in the tunnel..They are looking great!! A special thank you to Sally for coming out the last few weeks and washing bins..one of those not so fun jobs that we need to do every week so we have clean bins to harvest into..Thanks!!

Please help us welcome Lindsay..our fall intern to Montrose!! She is a delightful young lady from New Jersey.

In the tunnels..Fall greens are looking great..chinese cabbage is starting to head up..have started to harvest the bok choi, yakina savoy, and the vivid choi..The girls finished digging sweet potatoes in the low tunnel this morning{one of our rainy day tasks we have been working on!!} Not as good a yeild on the  sweet potatoes this season..but most of them are huge!! The biggest weighs in at 7 lbs..not sure just how we are going to divy them up!!

Happy Fall everyone!!

Note: 28th veggie pickup of the 2015 season is tomorrow morning!!!  11:00am to 2:00pm!!!

NOTE: Time for another payment!!

Well, the glorious fall weather continues!!! Still no frost..not even a hint and it is already mid-October!! A bit cooler this past week..highs in the high 70's lows high 30-low 40 range. There is a storm starting to come in this evening..supposed to be rainy a good bit of the weekend and into Monday or Tuesday with highs in the 60's..lows in the high 30's untill it clears out, but still not freezing.

We are anticipating the frost..so a good bit of the week was spent getting some of our warm season goodies harvested..just in case!! Worked on the winter squash..a bit disappointing..not as many as in years past..still some out there, but they need a bit more time. We chickened out today and harvested any of the tomatoes that look like they will go ahead and ripen out..not so many going into storage as in years past..but we have been harvesting them for a month longer than usual!! Looks like this week is the last for melons. Did a final harvest on peppers, eggplant, cucumbers, and summer squash..might be a few more next week depending on the weather. We are ready to move on to fall crops..sunchokes, turnips, winter radish, parsnips, rutabaga, mangals, sugar beets, brussel sprouts and more!! We've been harvesting a few things here and there, but some of them will better after a touch of frost.

Please help us welcome Lindsay..our fall intern to Montrose!! She is a delightful young lady from New Jersey.

NOTE: food safety..our melons are grown in soil!! Melons are very high in sugars..all bacteria..the good, the bad, and the ugly love sugar to grow!! Please wash your melons thoroughly before you cut them!! As you cut them, you inoculate that whole cut with any bacteria that is on the outside of the melon!!

Note; we can still use your help your help!!!. Workdays for October are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday..9-noon unless you want to come earlier to beat the heat!! We need to get a start on winter squash harvest

Note Note!! We are going to do a Special Sunday Get the Harvest in Before Frost Day!! Sunday October 18. We will be harvesting any warm season crops that we didn't get to this week and maybe even start on some of our fall roots and shoots.

In the tunnels..Fall greens are looking great..chinese cabbage is starting to head up..may have bok choi in the next couple weeks!!

Updates on our little birdie friends...

New duckies are 29 weeks old now..they have not been at all pleased with the lack of rain!!

Little Miss did it!! Now have 7 or 8 little goslings that are 22 weeks old. All the geese love the split melons..they start demanding their melon fix before we even get them picked!!

new baby duckies are now 12 weeks old!! We have a theory{and we are sticking to it!!} The ducks with the big feet are the boys..the ones with the smaller feet are the girls!! Della did try to do her bead thing this week but the duckies kept trying to eat her bead!!

Happy Fall everyone!!

Note: 28th veggie pickup of the 2015 season is tomorrow morning!!!  11:00am to 2:00pm!!!

NOTE>>NOTE>>NOTE!!! This week!!!  October 10 the new time will be 11 am to 2 pm. Please pass the word to your pickup groups or to anyone that will be picking up for you!! 

Well, not quite such a glorious week!! We had just a bit of rain Sunday night and Monday..not a huge amount just drizzles off and on most of the night and day. Then the sun started coming back Tuesday..not as warm as last week but not too bad for fall weather!! Highs have been in the high 60's early in the week..70's later after the sun came back. Lows have been in the low-mid 40's except for one night when we got down to 38. No freeze yet!! but the high peaks did get a bit of snow!! Looks like we will have more nice sunny weather for another week..then looks like another storm is moving in next weekend.

Fall is definitely in the air this week..just a bit of a nip to the breeze..and at least one of your farmers had to break down and wear long pants and shoes!! Tomatoes are still going strong..not quite as many this week..only 136 lbs. Melons have gone nuts!! Even more melons for the CSA this week!! Not sure what to do with all that melon?? Well, a few things we have tried in the past are..freezing it..just cut into chunks or use a melon baller and stick in the freezer..nice additions to smoothies through the winter!! Make sorbet..and freeze for winter. Making melon jam..melons make an awesome jam..one of our favorites is melon pineapple..I think Terry was going to try a melon blackberry. Dehydrate it..cut into chunks or slices and dry it..makes awesome little snack bites for outdoor adventures..or for just munching..warning..can be addictive!! and it is very hard to eat just one..you can start out with a whole bag and the next thing you know it's all gone!! I have more melon recipes on the website... www.circleagarden.com 

NOTE: food safety..our melons are grown in soil!! Melons are very high in sugars..all bacteria..the good, the bad, and the ugly love sugar to grow!! Please wash your melons thoroughly before you cut them!! As you cut them, you inoculate that whole cut with any bacteria that is on the outside of the melon!!

FYI: Melons like lots of heat to develop their sweetness so our melons this year may not be quite as sweet as usual.

Note; we can still use your help your help!!!. Workdays for October are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday..9-noon unless you want to come earlier to beat the heat!! We need to get a start on winter squash harvest

Note Note!! We are going to do a Special Sunday Get the Harvest in Before Frost Day!! Sunday October 18. We will be harvesting warm season crops that will be hurt by a frost..

In the tunnels..Tomatoes are still going strong..peppers are getting done..if this weather continues they may have more..there are a lot of little peppers that have just set in the last few weeks but may not have time to mature out. Chinese cabbage is still growing strong..the rest of the greens are lookin' good. I'll sure be glad when the red choi and the red rain get bigger..right now it looks like there are big gaps in the bed..{they are dark colored and don't show up well against the soil}!!

Updates on our little birdie friends...

NOTE: Della has some of the ducks and geese for sale now..please check with her if you are interested..

 new little chickies  are just about 20 weeks old..should have heard them this week crowing at the moon in competition with the older roosters

Old little chickies are almost 32 weeks old now..looks like all the aracanas..the ones who lay the blue eggs are laying..not sure how many of the others have started..

New duckies are 28 weeks old now..they have not been at all pleased with the lack of rain!!

Little Miss did it!! Now have 7 or 8 little goslings that are 21 weeks old. All the geese love the split melons..they start demanding their melon fix before we even get them picked!!

new baby duckies are now 11 weeks old!! We have a theory{and we are sticking to it!!} The ducks with the big feet are the boys..the ones with the smaller feet are the girls!! Della did try to do her bead thing this week but the duckies kept trying to eat her bead!! Don't know what the bead thing is..ask Della and she can show you how it works..same principle as dowsing for water..pretty cool!!

Fun happening we would like to get started here on the farm..a demonstration of how to use different veggies in the share. We are shooting for 3 Saturdays this season..early spring, peak season, and fall. If you have a favorite way to prepare your veggies that you wold like to share with everyone please let me know so we can get it all coordinated. Our THANKS to Kat and Stan for helping put this together!!

Workdays for  Oct..weekdays Monday, Tuesday, or Wednesday. 9 am-noon unless you would like to come earlier to beat the heat!

 

What is available for the CSA?

Note: not sure what to do with your produce..check out our website..  www.circleagarden.com I keep adding more recipes as new stuff is ready to harvest.

NOTE: Food Safety..we do NOT consider any of our produce ready to eat{not even the salad greens!!} We chill it in cool water to remove the field heat and get some of the soil off but must recommend that you WASH your produce before eating!!

Happy Fall everyone!!

Note: 27th veggie pickup of the 2015 season is tomorrow morning!!!  9:00am to noon!!!

NOTE>>NOTE>>NOTE!!! Fall is here..days are much shorter..and it is getting cooler in the early mornings..it is time to change our veggie pickup hours. Next week.. October 10 the new time will be 11 am to 2 pm. Please pass the word to your pickup groups or to anyone that will be picking up for you!! 

Well, another glorious fall week!! Lots of sunshine..a couple days that it got downright hot!! Highs have been in the 80's..lows in the high 40's. We reached record breaking highs for this time of year a couple days..some of our highs this last week of Sept and first week of October were higher than some of the highs back in July and August!! Today was incredibly warm..incredibly sunny..and incredibly windy so there must be a storm brewing someplace. The forecast this next week is calling for cooler temps..70 degree days with low 40's at night..we might even get a bit of rain by Monday or Tuesday!!

Fall is still happening, but this week was more like summer abodanza. Summer squash made a comeback..little squashes grew like weeds..we had been picking it 3 times a week to keep it small..it seemed to be dwindleing so this week we only picked it once..quite a few fairly good sized zucs. Tomatoes really boomed this week..harvested almost 150 lbs..we've been getting about 100 lbs each week during September. AND the melons finally decided it was time!! Lots of melons this week!! 

NOTE: food safety..our melons are grown in soil!! Melons are very high in sugars..all bacteria..the good, the bad, and the ugly love sugar to grow!! Please wash your melons thoroughly before you cut them!! As you cut them, you inoculate that whole cut with any bacteria that is on the outside of the melon!!

FYI: Melons like lots of heat to develop their sweetness so our melons this year may not be quite as sweet as usual.

Note; we can still use your help your help!!!. Workdays for October are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday..9-noon unless you want to come earlier to beat the heat!!

Note Note!! We may do a Special Sunday Get the Harvest in Before Frost Day!! We need to give the winter squash as much time as possible to mature before we pick them. {They were late going in as well and really needed more heat during July and August} So far the weather is holding but may be sending out an emergency frost e-mail during the next few weeks!! Please let me know if you will be available to help us!!

In the tunnels..Tomatoes in the low tunnel..well last week I figured they were on their way out..Tuesday we got a few..then today we got about 30 lbs!! Tomats in the high tunnel decided to speed up their ripening as well. We got a few more trays of greens planted..everybody is looking great!! I think the chinese cabbage grew about 6 inches since last week!!

Updates on our little birdie friends...

 new little chickies  are just about 19 weeks old..should have heard them this week crowing at the moon in competition with the older roosters

Old little chickies are almost 31 weeks old now..looks like all the aracanas..the ones who lay the blue eggs are laying..not sure how many of the others have started..

New duckies are 27 weeks old now..they have not been at all pleased with the lack of rain!!

Little Miss did it!! Now have 7 or 8 little goslings that are 20 weeks old. They are learning a new food group this week..split melons..the older geese love them..the babies just aren't quite sure yet..if all goes well they will be getting a few more.

new baby duckies are now 10 weeks old!! We have a theory{and we are sticking to it!!} The ducks with the big feet are the boys..the ones with the smaller feet are the girls!!

Happy Fall everyone!!

Note: 26th veggie pickup of the 2015 season is tomorrow morning!!!  9:00am to noon!!!

NOTE>>NOTE>>NOTE!!! Fall is here..days are much shorter..and it is getting cooler in the early mornings..it is time to change our veggie pickup hours. In two weeks..October October 10 the new time will be 11 am to 2 pm. Please pass the word to your pickup groups or to anyone that will be picking up for you!! 

Well, the last two weeks have been glorious!!! Don't you just love fall?? Lots of sunshine..most days have been nice and warm..but not too warm!!..nights have been a bit cool at times..we had a couple of 40 degree nights last weekend. Mostly our daytime temps have been hi 70's to mid 80's..did have a couple of days that barely reached 70. Nighttime temps have been anywhere from 40 to 50. The forecast is calling for more of the same..lots of sunshine..highs in the low 80's with lows in the 40's. I wouldn't mind having a nice long fall..like clear up to Christmas!! I am NOT ready to add more layers..I am already starting to lose my jacket..I put it on in the early morning..take it off where ever I am when the sun hits me..and then I can't find it the next morning!!

Signs of fall are happening all over out in  the fields..summer squash is dwindling..blackberries are just about finished..peppers are turning bright and glorious colors..almost down to the last week of fennel..fall roots are getting bigger..brussel sprouts are making little sprouts..fall cabbages are starting to head up..we are hitting the fields later..almost 7 instead of 5:30.. AND yet the melons are still waiting to ripen!! But we got twice as many melons this week as last..{ok so we only got 7 last week!!}..but if we continue to have all this sunshine they may go ahead and ripen!! This week we got a few swan lake, some emerald gems, a couple of canary melons. and a couple of watermelon. AND some of the others are looking like they could ripen up any minute now!! We did plant them later than in past years..it was just so cool early on..{remember the snow on Mother's day weekend? Della and Terry are STILL telling me about it!!}..but they should have started ripening by Sept.1!!

Note; we can still use your help your help!!!. Workdays for September are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday..9-noon unless you want to come earlier to beat the heat!!

Thanks to Joyce for coming out Wednesday and Rylan {our great nephew} for coming over Thursday to help out!! Also, please help us thank Kat for an outstanding job making our veggies shine!! 

In the tunnels..Tomatoes in the low tunnel are waning..soon it will bee time to start harvesting sweet potatoes. Have a sweet potato question for next season..I keep reading and hearing about purple sweet potatoes and I think I might like to try a few..{you know me and purple veggies!!}They take a much longer season than the orange ones we are doing now..would you like us to try a few purples if I can find slips in the spring?? Fall planting of greens is going in slowly but surely..some of the holdup is waiting for summer crops to come out..some is we have had to spend a lot more time than normal picking blackberries..but we have gotten over half of them in..most of the rest are slated to go in Monday. The ones we have gotten planted are lookin' good..already putting up new growth!!

Updates on our little birdie friends...

 new little chickies  are just about 18 weeks old..looks {and sounds!!}like we have at least two little roosters..they still need much more practice!! They seem to be enjoying their new quarters..some day we may get used to hearing them down there!!

Old little chickies are almost 30 weeks old now..several more have started laying.

New duckies are 26 weeks old now..they have not been at all pleased with the lack of rain!!

Little Miss did it!! Now have 7 or 8 little goslings that are 19 weeks old. They are learning a new food group this week..split melons..the older geese love them..the babies just aren't quite sure yet..if all goes well they will be getting a few more.

Well, this week was oh so much drier!! It was cloudy early on in the week..clearing and sunny by early afternoon...maybe 10 whole drops of rain. By Tuesday the sun was back in all its glory...from dawn to dawn!!! High temperatures early in the week in the 70's..today it hit 85..lows have been in the 40's all week. Who enjoyed a week of sunshine?? Well, pretty much all of us here at the farm..it was so delightful to harvest and work out in the fields without all that water pouring down!! The forecast for next week is calling for a bit of rain early in the week with sunshine later on.

Was a much better week for getting out into  the fields..Mom has been oh so happy to be able to get out of the house..she has been working on weeding our fall roots..they are lookin' good!! The melons appreciated the sunshine..they have been waiting for it..Della harvested our first 5 watermelons today!! Hopefully if we get another good solid week of warm sunny weather the rest of the melons will decide to start ripening. There are lots of melons out there, but they like warmer, sunnier days than we have been getting to start ripening out. If you haven't been out in the gardens for a while, the sunchokes are in full bloom right now..spectacular!!

Note; we can still use your help your help!!!. Workdays for September are Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday..9-noon unless you want to come earlier to beat the heat!!

Thanks to Joyce for coming out Wednesday and Rylan {our great nephew} for coming over Thursday to help out!!

In the tunnels..We plan on starting to plant greens next week..lord willin' and the crick don't rise!! Okra and malabar spinack will be coming out soon to make way for more greens. Tomats are still going strong. Chard and kale..especially the kale is very happy!! Peppers are amazing..many of them are starting to sport their fall colors..lots of reds, yellow, and orange to brighten up the CSA this week.

Even though we are approaching the halfway point in our CSA season, there are still many weeks left of awesome procuce!! We need 50 members this season!! We have 34 members at this point. We will still be signing folks up until we are full!!

Updates on our little birdie friends...

Old little chickies are almost 28 weeks old now..several more have started laying.

New duckies are 24 weeks old now..they have not been at all pleased with the lack of rain!!

Little Miss did it!! Now have 7 or 8 little goslings that are 17 weeks old. Very difficult to tell the babies from the adults now..unless they are honking..the babies are still sort of twittering..either haven't gotten the honk thing down yet or just haven't needed to make that much noise 'cause everyone else is already doing so!!

new baby duckies are now 7 weeks old!! They are reaching that awkward teenage stage..all feet..growing more feathers..a couple of them are starting to get little baby mohawks. They are going to be interesting when they get finished feathering out!!
