Notes from the Field

The sweet peppers, fall roots, and savory late summer/fall crops have peaked to help fill the week 17 bag.  Yes!  

The retrospect of the season in a viewfinder-of-glimpses reveals a spectrum of actity:

Feb/March: Onion seeding and CSA sign up.

April: field work and steadily cool temperatures

May: Workshare starts, find wire worms in onions

Notes from the Field

A short while ago Zoe and I visited a farm in Sabattus, ME names Willow Pond Farm, they have one of the first Community Supported Agriculture programs in the state.  When talking with woman farmer Jill Agnew, she said "... the CSA has been my life blood..." - these words ring in me.

Zoe and I feel grateful for our annual journy to connect and deepen our relationship to growing and distributing food within our community.  Thank you.

We hope all who wanted to and were able could attend the Common Ground Fair.

The moment we've all been waiting for.....

100 days later, from seed to transplant to field to your table - winter squash season is falling into place, how delicious!

Delicata, a local CSA favorite, is in your bag.  A light yellow to orange flesh, and a skin like a potatoe, this squash is versatile: baked, roasted, steamed and mashed, pan sauted.

Enjoy as you will - butter, salt, maple syrup, with pear or apple, savory herbs and cheese or as is.

Notes From the Field

Hello everyone!

I recognize that in our full crop field plan we are introducing some new food items and also giving an abundance of crops that are happening now (ex. tomatoes and beans)

I highly recommend slicing the eggplan thin and brushing it with olive oil to grill, broil, or pan fry.

The Roasting Peppers, when roasted will vary in heat some sweet and others warm, mildly hot to the bite.

Notes From the Field

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing, there is a field.  I'll meet you there.  Where the soul lies down in the grass, the world is too full to talk about.

Ideas, language, even the phrase "each other" doesn't make sense.

What do I do with all of this food?

Eggplant, beets, carrots, tomatoes galore . . . . 

No need to worry.  Let's talk about it.  How about veggie kabobs??  Learn to make a roasted tomatoe sauce or soup.

A stir-fry with a szechwan sauce?

An earnest collaborator, Zoe Goehring.

Zoe has been working with Dig Deep since 2011.  Her attention to detail, care for all things, and artistic ways have brought nothing but inspired delight along the way.  Thank you Zoe for your presence, creativity, and supportive nature in all that is growing: the food, flowers, and relationships to land and people.

Notes from the Field

What's been happening in the field has been an ongoing integration of 'reverance and practicality', as my farming friend Meg Phillips notes in regards to growing food and working with the seasons.

In the Tuesday morning flower picking we are in discussion on the ecological systems for annual growing cycles.  We share our admiration for plants and their will to grow by design - We enjoy helping one another grow emotionally as we celebrate play, joys, and hardships that we are journeying with.

Notes from the Field

July's phasing to August - we've the first sungold cherry tomatoe plants ripening; it will only be a matter of weeks, and a waterfall of color, and the purpose of patience will be realized in a bite of a field ripened tomatoe... many folks enjoy tomatoes.

We continue to tend the fields & weeding, monitoring crop growth, seeding and harvesting.  I am looking forward to growing winter storage radishes and harvesting celery towards September.

We hope the fruits of all of our cooperation remain satisfying.  Enjoy!
