News from  the farm

September 18th

Rain! Yeah! we got some, a little we are supposed to get some more later on in the week. So they say. Needless to say it has been hot and dry. We were not at market last week and will not be this week. Our fall crops will be coming in then. Sorry for the 2 week gap in production, but nothing even the spring crops only stood in the field half as long as they should. Veggies that we should of been harvesting for 2 months we got 1 out of. The plants have been in a hurry to go to seed for some reason this year. I think it is part of a bigger multiyear cycle. Subject for another discussion.

Our first fall field plantings have finally taken off with this little bit of rain, even though we had planted and irrigated the heat and dry winds has slowed everything down including us.                                 So next week we will have small radishes and green onions, the last of our field tomatoes to start with, then come all the greens. Our high tunnel tomatoes are starting to fruit so are the squash and late cucumbers we will try to keep those going as long as we can before it gets too cold. Maybe we will actually have tomatoes with lettuce this year.

WINTER DELIVERIES!

Yes we are doing winter deliveries again this year and we are including 3 Blanks Farm with eggs, Bixler Farm with eggs, Whirlwind with veggies and WW Farm with veggies meat and eggs. It will work like previous years where you will be able to order on line then we will deliver every Saturday in S. Huntsville where Lathun Market is now and Madison where the Madison market is now. Stay tuned to the our store page for details and maps. I will send out a reminder e-mail a week before the first delivery then every Monday after that. Last year we only missed 2 weeks one was because of a snow storm and the other was the week before the Madison market opens so we can give our gardens a chance to catch up so we have a good first market day. You can provide us with your contact info at our market booth or WW Farms booth when you see one of us at market or just contact me thru the contact us form on this site, e-mail us at whirlwindfsrms4@gmail.com.

We will also have another high tunnel added this year so we can offer more veggies. Thanks for your encouragement and trust we value you.
