Notes from the field

The gold potatoes looked irresistable!

It is hard to believe we are seven weeks into the bag share already - the weeks ahead look promising. The rain brought food security!

The transition from July to August is one of my favorites. I've found myself reflecting on images from when we grew everything on one acre and the chorus of bloms that occured in one central place... it is a chance to see which seeds from the dark months of waiting and planning have grown to gruit.

Notes from the field

Along with the seasonal planing and weeding calendar, our social calendar is equally full. Family is around; friends to meet; and this week (a real joy for us) is a young man from Paris has come to spend a week helping around the farm in exchange for room and board. He entertains us all at night with impressive "magic" card tricks; and warms our hearts throughout the day with his friendliness and life perspectives.

We hope you enjoy the variety this week - I did my best to try to not make everything green that is in your bag. Enjoy!

Notes from the Field

This may be a stretch - what are the differences and similarities between July and January?

July's symphony of May's plantings blossing

July is the movement to January's stillness.

As a farmer the spring is busy, but in July it feels like everything needs to happen at once: weeding, harvesting, prep for cover crop, seeding of winter carrots - the challenge can be juggling the logistics, but somehow organization presents itself, and thank goodness the days are long!

The fields are looking vibrant - we've received a generous amount of rain, and it looks like more is on the way. Water is a precious recource.

Notes from the Field

We are cresting into summer after the dash and push of spring planting

Our tomatoes are being trellised and a few gleanings from the sugar snap peas are happening - this is our chance as CSA farmers to begin giving back! Your bags are filled with salad goodness and overwintered roots. The nasturtium shoots have been new for us- they are sweet and then have a wasabi-like bite; they add zip to a salad, or you can try them in the recipe in place of agugula. Enjoy!

Thank you for being a part of our CSA!

Notes from the field:

Wind, rain, and sun all blessed our wedding day - the atmosphere was wild with creativity and we had fun.

For the last CSA bag, the tomatoes have hung on and are pumping out lots more green fruits - and we are giving you the true taste of Autumn with roots, and other storage crops.

Thank you for a great season.

For those signed up for the winter share see you the week of Nobember 13th.

All the best,

Dig Deep

Notes from the Field

The past few days have been great harvest weather, no sweltering employees.  The nights have been cool, with the kiss of frost in some spots.

This time of year restores my reverance for our lifestyle - working at dawn and dusk certain days of the seek offer some of the most beautiful colors - peaches and salmons; sunrises and sunsets.

I think we still have a bit of growing time left.  Our storage carrots are looking great, but would be happy with a little rain.

Notes from the Field:

A strong and low autumn sun has been ripening the crops and creating sweat beads on the brow - Wyatt and Martin, who have dedicatedly labored this season with Dig Deep took it all in stride.  We picked 45 pounds of green beans together on Monday!  And the kale to over winter looks lush and plentiful.  Two weeks left of the "summer" share.

Notes from the Field:

How do we say goodby to summer?

As the fall equinox approaches, celegrations of community pop-up: The Common Ground Country Fair is one...

Fall brings longer nights (than summer), cooler nights too.  It also is the convergence of peak food availability - hopefully you've eaten all the cucumbers and summer squash you could, or have put some by the winter.

I am eager to do field clean up and finish cover cropping before the beet and carrot harvest.

Notes from the Field:

Part of each season's journey is social-emotional.  Jon and I will be getting married in early October!  Surprise!

We are so fortunate to have one another and so fortunate to have a wonderful community!

If you would be moved to come celebrate we are having a potluck reception at our house.  Come anytime after 4:30 with a dish for 5 - 7 people.  Potluch 5 to 7 with a band and bonfire to follow Sunday October 8, 2017!
