Field Notes:

The sun is setting in the West, the sky above us, in the course of an hour spectrums from blue to violet with clouds that reflect pink and orange.

We've begun watering.  This past Saturday was a tomato trellising day and plants in the garden are showing noticeable signs of wanting water.  The field is looking practically weed free, than you to the many work share and field crew hands.  This seems like it will make August a breeze for irrigating, harvesting, and going to market.  I feel so grateful - after every full day, no matter what kkind of mental and emotional effort it takes, I've felt so happy and enriched by farming.  How much effort does it take to appreciate beauty?

Field Notes:

We hope you love what the bag shares bring this week.

Dripping with sweat and laughter the work share members are embracing the weeding that July brings.

The bag offers opportunities for 'lite' summer eating: fresh, juicy and tender veggies for stove top cooking or eating raw.

Field notes: If the bag of vegetables could talk, what would it voice?

We hope you enjoy the variety in this weeks share.  The salad turnips, the small white globes with roots, are tender and sweet; meant for fresh eating or sauteing.  The basil in the garden has been looking beautiful - we hope you enjoy it too.  You are receiving the first of the picking cukes.

Dear Dig Deep CSAers -

Happy 4th of July everyone!

This past weekend opened my mind and heart with the joyous occasion of sharing the farm with others - what brought us together were our onions and leeks.

The field speaks of transformation - what a beautiful sight to watch the plants shoot up from last weeks heat - overnight our sugar snap peas went from no flowers to flowers - a good reason to smile.

Hello everyone, welclome to week 1 of the bag share pick-up.  We are excited to begin to celebrate the growing season with you. 

With steady night time temps in the 50s and a series of rainy days, the spring has seemed cool and the soil biological activity reflects it - the field is growing . . . steady and slowly.

What it means to bud and sprout?

What it means to have wintered over and be beginning to pop?  For some to be thinking about growning and setting up for seed production...

The tidings of spring fill your bags with the last of the winter roots and the beginnings of spring's greenings.  Yellow carrots, fingerling potatoes, the last of the yellow onions and garlic, enlivened with a pea/sunflower shoot mix and either kale or spinach - field grown, over-wintered; and scallions!  Oh, the tricks of a farmer, all in hopes of pleasing yiour end-of-winter pallet.
