Notes from the field:

Seasonal activity is changing.  7:30 pm it is clearly dusk, and it is still dark at quarter of five in the morning.  I imagine we may be in for an "Indian Summer"; we shall see, I'll keep following or usual harvest and cover cropping schedule.

This time of year reminds me to savor the summer heat loving crops; I hope to put some tomatoes by for the winter too.

See Zucchini Yeast Rolls for a great recipe you can use for all that zucchini!

Notes from the field:

Life is good.

We are in the peak season where late summer and early fall conditions overlap - hence the delicata winter squash and abundance of tomatoes.  The delicata will keep for a while - it can be baked or steamed - it is sweet!  Delicious! And the skin is edible.

Notes from the Field:

Something has gone fallow and now will grow a-rye......

As crisp mornings dawn our waking hours, we've begun putting areas of the Dig Deep Field to bed - sections that held early plants of crops grown, harvested, and distributed, now hold rye and vetch seed - cover crop that will stay hardy throught the winder, re-growing in the spring time.

Seeding cover crops are part of maintaining a healthy organic system.

Notes from the field:

No small-potatoes around here . . . . onions??  Well . . . . it was a rainey spring . . .

Tomatoes!!!!! are in.  Peppers, eggplant, celery; blue potatoes are called adirondack blues, they are a slightly dry potato - delicious roasted in the oven or mashed with another variety of potato; I imagine they'd make delicious homefries

Field Notes:

August temperatures and sunlight are ripening blossomed fruits, tomato vines are heavy with green, beginning to blush to red, juicy goodness!

The bags will be bursting with lots of delicious goods from here on out.  Mesculin greens will return next week, we had a lapse in a mustard seeding.

The nightshade crops: peppers, eggplant, potatoes, and tomatoes will be in high season these next few weeks.

Field Notes:

The sun is setting in the West, the sky above us, in the course of an hour spectrums from blue to violet with clouds that reflect pink and orange.

We've begun watering.  This past Saturday was a tomato trellising day and plants in the garden are showing noticeable signs of wanting water.  The field is looking practically weed free, than you to the many work share and field crew hands.  This seems like it will make August a breeze for irrigating, harvesting, and going to market.  I feel so grateful - after every full day, no matter what kkind of mental and emotional effort it takes, I've felt so happy and enriched by farming.  How much effort does it take to appreciate beauty?

Field Notes:

We hope you love what the bag shares bring this week.

Dripping with sweat and laughter the work share members are embracing the weeding that July brings.

The bag offers opportunities for 'lite' summer eating: fresh, juicy and tender veggies for stove top cooking or eating raw.

Field notes: If the bag of vegetables could talk, what would it voice?

We hope you enjoy the variety in this weeks share.  The salad turnips, the small white globes with roots, are tender and sweet; meant for fresh eating or sauteing.  The basil in the garden has been looking beautiful - we hope you enjoy it too.  You are receiving the first of the picking cukes.

Dear Dig Deep CSAers -

Happy 4th of July everyone!

This past weekend opened my mind and heart with the joyous occasion of sharing the farm with others - what brought us together were our onions and leeks.
