Notes From the Field

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.  I'll meet you there.  Where the soul lies down in the grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make sense.

What do I do with all of this food?

Eggplant, beets, carrots, tomatoes galore . . . . 

No need to worry.  Let's talk about it.  How about veggie kabobs??  Learn to make a roasted tomatoe sauce or soup.

A stir-fry with a szechwan sauce?

An earnest collaborator, Zoe Goehring.

Zoe has been working with Dig Deep since 2011.  Her attention to detail, care for all things, and artistic ways have brought nothing but inspired delight along the way.  Thank you Zoe for your presence, creativity, and supportive nature in all that is growing: the food, flowers, and relationships to land and people.

Notes from the Field

What's been happening in the field has been an ongoing integration of 'reverance and practicality', as my farming friend Meg Phillips notes in regards to growing food and working with the seasons.

In the Tuesday morning flower picking we are in discussion on the ecological systems for annual growing cycles.  We share our admiration for plants and their will to grow by design - We enjoy helping one another grow emotionally as we celebrate play, joys, and hardships that we are journeying with.

Notes from the Field

July's phasing to August - we've the first sungold cherry tomatoe plants ripening; it will only be a matter of weeks, and a waterfall of color, and the purpose of patience will be realized in a bite of a field ripened tomatoe... many folks enjoy tomatoes.

We continue to tend the fields & weeding, monitoring crop growth, seeding and harvesting.  I am looking forward to growing winter storage radishes and harvesting celery towards September.

We hope the fruits of all of our cooperation remain satisfying.  Enjoy!

Notes From the Field

July is an apex in the growing season.  Shorter season crops are fruiting, longer term crops are blossoming - weeds of all species and heights exist.

Signs of our spring coming are still present, and the forward motion of our late spring decisions are looking to be fruitful: a gap in our beet production some beautiful winter squash.

Hello everyone, thank you.

Our field speaks of resiliency.  Our onions are about 1 1/2 feet tall, and our later planting is headed in a direction of steady growth.  We have phased out of the early season and we are approaching the high summer.

Notes from the Field

Hi everyone.  It's July.  Yum.  Many blossoms are beginning to fruit, heat and rain will help them burst.

CSA member David J. designed an 8' X 12' lean-to shed for us which went up yesterday amidst market harvest.  It brings a whole new life to our farm journey.  We are so grateful for our CSA workshare folks and the way we are all contributing equity to our food community.

Notes from the Field

Summer is here and there is no holding back.  We are regaining our stride post-wire worm.  We look forward to being "planted out" (meaning our greenhouse transplants are in the field) a week from now; to be managing our summer cropts to their fullest potential; and to be seeding our fall root crops soon.
