Notes from the Field:

We finished emptying the fields this week. . . no moment too soon!  This past Wednesday evening the sun poured through the trees in the west, imposing communication: "I'm setting;" evoking the feeling: -- there's not much time left.  And we finished pulling the leeks for winter storage.

Farming this time deepens the reverence, appreciation, and wonder of soil, sun, weather, and nature as a whole.  How did some crops make it and not others?  How do we learn from the season?  What do we do with all the storage radishes??

The surrounding horizon lines around the farm are breathtaking.  We are located on a ridge, looking to the East is a confluence and convergence of hills, making a collage of color this Fall.   The incoming harvest, continuous harvest of gr

Notes from the Field:

Jon's mom was visiting over the past weekend, and we had our first wet, cold day of fall.  We took advantage of the time and saw a movie about the Beatles in Waterville - since then our evenings have been filled with kitchen dancing and wondering about the feeling of "Mania" the Beatles evoked.  Pretty fun.

Your bags this week are filled with the accumulation of a season's farm growth.

Community Supported Agriculture is a shared risk.  As CSA members I deeply honor your commitment to participate in the farm season - try new things, deal with abundance, and of course, share the benefits of the harvest.

It brings such meaning to my life to see you all week after week.  Thank you!

1 week left!!

See the Curried Carrot Soup recipe!

Notes from the Field:

We are beginning to bring storage crops in - onions and potatoes can be checked off the list.

Sunday's rain brought relief to all - plants, farmers, human and earth kind - the winter cabbage and other late season crops look green again.

As we bring crops in - Jon and I are looking forward to the shorter days, longer nights and hopes for winter rehydration for the soil we work.

We are making plans to attend a Biodynamic Agriculture Conference this late fall for our further education and time together.

Notes from the Field:

Life has been so sweet since melons have arrived - they are the one cucurbit crop that seems to have thrived with a lack of rain- that you mulch plastic and soil type in the field they were grown in! Five weeks left of the summer bag share.

More goodness to come!

What's Coming?? Leeks and pie pumpkins

Notes from the Field

Market and CSA prep on Mondays and Tuesdays are a rush....

Each week brings new crops this time of year; the peas show that.

The potatoes are from last season, but it won't be long until new ones.

Summer squash, zucchini, and cucumber plans all have blossoms.

Frieds, volunteers, and the good work of Jon, Wyatt, Julia and myself: land managers and employees (Wyatt & Julia) are keeping the food growing and going!

Come on rain!

Welcome Summer Everyone!

What's in the Bag?
  • Head of lettuce
  • 1 small bag of salad mix
  • 1 bag of pea shoots
  • 1 bunch (1#) rhubarb
  • 1 bunch beet greens

You will find your bags filled with the vigor and earnesty of spring!

It's been an amazing leap moving to South Chine, a true alchemy of skill and faith.

Going into season 8, Dig Deep is moved by human and tractor power now.  There are blossoms on peas, potatoes to hill, and tomatoes to stake.

Late winter is here, and I feel momentum of spring’s arrival. I will be starting onions and early greens in about a week!!! Hard to believe! There is much to do!

It is CSA time to sign-up time, please take a look at our share options and see if there is something that works for you. We have some new share styles available this year!
