April Showers

It’s the time of year when the snow has vanished, puddles appear and disappear, and the soil is liberated. Steve and I were very excited last Thursday when, to our delight, the new field by the road seemed sufficiently dry to work up. We disked the field, measured it out carefully, and made our first […]

March is for Seeds

Happy March, It is hard to believe that we are only 18 days away from the official start of spring. As I write this the sun is shinning in the window and outside it is a balmy 0 C. The slow is finally starting to melt. It comes just as I am finishing up the […]

Febtastic February

It is hard to believe that it is February already. I am happy to report that Heather and I made it back safe and sound from our first vacation since starting the farm. We had a wonderful couple of weeks on Vancouver Island visiting with Heather’s relations. We arrived home to the farm yesterday morning […]

Snowy Locavore Cuisine – January 6th, 2015

Happy New Year! After a rather warm December, the cool days seem here to stay – but there’s lots of veggies staying warm in our storage. We spend most of our time these days cleaning and bagging up vegetables for our monthly CSA, as well as for our Saturday market at the Wychwood park barns. […]

Funion Times in September – Sept 3rd

Happy September! It is hard to believe that time has flown by so fast. We are enjoying the last few hot days of the summer and are in full harvest mode. Today and tomorrow the crew is out in full force bringing in our amazing onion harvest. The onions have been one of our stellar […]

Beans Beans Beans!

I love this time of year. While the air does hold that ominous scent of fall (that makes me sneezey) it also brings with it the promise of newly seeded fall crops and the reaping of our spring seedings. This week’s reaping brings a double special harvest of our edamame beans and our fava beans […]

Carrots! – Aug 20th

It’s the time of the year when we start having to play jigsaw puzzle every time we load up the van for Toronto… we’ve got lots coming in these days, and it’s the time of year to feast! We dug our first carrots of the season this week for you, planted near the May long […]

Garlic and good times – Aug 13th

Some days are just short and sweet… Garlic is in, we’re just waiting for it to cure. Carrots are free of weeds, again 😉 Fresh beds are made for fall plantings. Tomatoes are in full swing. All is well, and busy at the farm! Enjoy the tastiness, Heather Tuesday harvest crew included Wwoofers Audrey (far […]

Happy August – Aug 6th

It is August here on the farm and we couldn’t be more excited. August means the arrival of many of our favourite crops such as Tomatoes and Green Beans, but it also signals the start of preparations for many of our favourite fall crops such as Arugula and Watermelon Radishes. Each day in the field […]

Mmm… Tomatoes! – July 30th

The tastes of summer, fresh beans and tomatoes, joined our harvest on Tuesday this week. It’s around this time of year that we switch some of our planting, hoeing, and weeding time over to bringing in more harvest. We start the season with two harvest days (Tuesday and Friday), but now we get to start […]
