Hi Everyone and Welcome!

Bag share * Week 1

The 2013 givings have begun, your spring CSA sign-ups are giving back - our planning and field work as farmers are here to be received.  Many thanks.

Lots of fresh greens so tender - they are hard to resist.  Our custom salad mix, a weekly standard for our CSA share holders; swiss chard would be great with yellow eyed beans or on a savory flat bread or tart with leeks and goat cheese.

Field Notes

A day:

My calendar, interestingly, marks June as having 31 days.  What on earth??  What would you do if you had an extra day in June?

Sitting now, at the end of what is July 1, hearing pitter pats of rain outside, I recall an exponentkial list of tasks, activities, and farm day events that happened; it amazes me... and I imagine myself sitting around a table with some of you all, giving everyone an opportunity to simply list what each day hold; and ever yet, the sequence within an hours time.

Field Notes:

Deep gratitude opens my heart to you all.  Thank you for the oppportunity to grow you healthy food from the ground and community up.

The field speaks . . . whispering, almost ready to shout: "... two weeks away from the beginning of summer's abundant cascade..." wht a poetic field, I think.

Hi Everyone!

Happy New Year!

Seems as though we are finally having a Maine winter; a great way to keep our bodies limber for the spring through snow shoveling!

Dig Deep Farm will be at the Mill Park Farmer's market this coming Tuesday with market produce and a CSA bag share pick-up.

Field Notes:

Sunshine: shape shifting rays bending as cloud cover passes; the month of October is one of Maine's hidden 5th season, as the weather system shifts from coming in from the southeast to coming down from the northwest.

Harvest time is a time of celebration, gratitude, and abundance - a chance for us all to be thankful for what the season was.

Field Notes:

Monday morning harvest days are filled with laughter - sharing anectodotes from past days and collaborating on ideas like a local broadcasting of "Maine's next top farmer."

We day dream about challenges for competition with no talk about what a grand prize would be.  I guess we are open to suggestions on this one; challenge ideas are also welcome.


Seems as though we have avoided a September frost - amazing.  I imagine a color filled and weather filled October.

Field Notes

Late September winds blow in inevitable change.

A farmer's pace this time of year shifts to a movement that mimics our spring hustle to sow seed - now it is reap and harvest.

This weeks bag reflects some of the unique flavors from our market garden: sweet potatoes that carmelize when roasted; lemon grass for a nourishing flavor to soups; spinach!!  Speaks for itself to many.

Two weeks of pick up left . . . hart to believe . . . Next week's bag will be a bit smaller to help balance the final bang of a bag.

Field Notes:

Bedazzling to the eyes - this bag is just as colorful as the trees will turn come late September, early October!

Yum!  This week you receive a stock of onions, a Kabocha winter squash (dry and sweet with tender skin - see recipe), swiss chard; the colorful carrots are all delicious for fresh eating or sauteing/roasting; perhaps a little salsa can be made with the swarm of tomato varieties . . . color for health, flavor, and creativity! 

Enjoy!
