News from  the farm

August 15th

We have started fall planting in the high tunnels. Late tomatoes, cucumbers, squash and a start on some cool weather crops like spinach, lettuce mix and some herbs like sorrel, dill, parsley. We have also started transplants in the for our fall field plantings in the greenhouse. All cool weather crops, basically all the leafy greens, asian greens and root vegetables. We want to put up another high tunnel this fall we have materials for 1/2 of one we will need to get materials for the rest. So we will have more veggies for winter deliveries this year.

Our tractor has some electrical issues so we haven't been able to bush hog or to get a cover crop and mulch tilled in our front field, getting ready for fall. So we look a little more raged than usual.

However we have gotten a water tank that we can separate the iron out of our well water before we put it thru our filter going to the house so a little more plumbing and we will have drinkable water going to the house. Yeah! It is coming together, slow but sure. See you at market.
