IMAGINE: the taste of harvest crops gracing your table this late fall and winter; carrot ginger soup; roasted beet and toasted walnut salad; pizza topped with winter squash and caramelized onions; hot German potato salad made with waxy finterling potatoes - a seasonal palette of savory, mineral-rich local, organid foods!

Notes from the Field:

Perspective: This is a word that I feel helps encapsulate the 2011 growing season.  This season has brought exponential growth in farming confidence, groundedness in the community, and the evolution of the social support systems that fuel Dig Deep.  I feel nothing but gratitude.

Dig Deep Farm Fall 2011 - Potluck and Season Extension

Oct

Hello CSAers and friends-

I hope this note finds you all enjoying the beginnings of the fall season. The end of season to-do list is coming into scope: the root vegetable harvest, mowing and discing summer vegetable crops that have gone-by, seeding open ground with cover crop for the winter, seeding and mulching garlic, securing the outdoor winter greens growing experiment, cutting new tomato trellises; the list grows and priorities shift as cooler temperatures draw near; thoughts for next season are coming to fruition as the physical efforts for this season draw to a close.

Notes from the field:

I wish we grew fall raspberries.  Now that the pace of life has shifted, I had the great opportunity to take a day and a half off to visit long time friends in western Massachusetts.

It seemed like every roadside stand was advertising "local peaches"; I made a stop at my former stomping grounds, Hampshire College, to purview the Farm Center - they hae an on-campus CSA with pick-your-own fall tomatoes, beans, flowers and raspberries

Notes from the field:

The rhythm of our days these days:  Late nights.  Early mornings.  Off to market - Return from market, manage field work, watch the sunset.  Watch the moon rise.  See the fog lift, the sky clear.

Notes from the field:

Russell Libby, the Director of Maine Organic Farmers and Gardiners Association wrote an editorial of sorts in a fall newsletter about food, comunity, the present and living in the present with our vision for the future.  His words suggested to me, "Why wait?"

Notes from the field:

The sound of rain drips and patters onto leaf tops.  This rain makes me think of apple trees; this seasonal trasition to fall, and moisture percolating down to deeper rooted crops, feels like a nice way to round our our growing season.

Notes from the field:

Ripe * Plump * Juicy * Seedy

With historic meaning of lust and seduction, it is no wonder that growing tomatoes become a labor of love.
