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 […]

Notes from Cat – July 23rd

My name is Cat, I have been working on the farm for the last two months and it is my pleasure to be sharing with you this week’s bounty. It is hard work, but the product of our work is rewarding and very tasty! This week’s CSA baskets contain many of our favorite vegetables, including […]

Zucchini are here! – July 16th

  It’s always exciting when we harvest the first zucchini of the year, they are such beautiful treats. We’re still busy planting crops for the fall like cabbages and kale, but we’re getting better and better harvests off our summer crops. The tomatoes are forming on the vines, and the garlic should be ready in […]

Splish Splash Vegetables – July 9th

2014 is shaping up to be quite a different year from all those before. Two years ago we were struggling through the worst drought in fifty years and this year we’ve had two days where the daily rain total beat the whole summer of 2012. We’d received about 5mm of rain on Monday. It was […]

Turning up the heat

  Hello ,We certainly made a sudden leap into summer weather this week.  Last week we were working along as normal and then suddenly the thermostat got cranked up about ten degrees or so.  For us this means drinking lots of water and rushing to keep up with the plants as they go into overdrive.  […]

Summertime News

Happy Summer! It has been a nice gradual spring, a mixed blessing for farmers – but we’re glad summer is here now. We almost have all the full-season crops in the ground, and we’re into the rhythm for the ones we plant regularly like lettuces, beans and beets. Our time is balanced between harvesting, weeding, […]

Tastiness Growing!

May was a dynamite month for us here on the farm. We’ve been able to get a lot of crops into the ground earlier than we’d expected given the late spring thaw and relatively wet month of May. Kale, chard, lettuce, arugula, spinach, peas, beans, edamame, parsley, cilantro, summer squash, carrots, parsnips, rutabagas, beets, tomatoes […]

Happy Spring!

It is almost hard to believe that spring is finally here. The mountains of snow are slowly starting to melt (yesterday I found a “to do list” from January in a snowbank: some of the items are still to be done…) and the first signs of life have appeared in the greenhouse. This weekend we’ll […]

It’s toasty in the Greenhouse

  It may still be cold outside, but it is nice and toasty in the greenhouse these days.  For the past week and change we have been busy waking up our dormant farm.  The thin walls of the greenhouse combined with the warm sun have meant a few blissful days of working in T-shirts and […]
