The field speaks of transformation - what a beautiful sight to watch the plants shoot up from last weeks heat - overnight our sugar snap peas went from no flowers to flowers - a good reason to smile.

Hello everyone, welclome to week 1 of the bag share pick-up.  We are excited to begin to celebrate the growing season with you. 

With steady night time temps in the 50s and a series of rainy days, the spring has seemed cool and the soil biological activity reflects it - the field is growing . . . steady and slowly.

What it means to bud and sprout?

What it means to have wintered over and be beginning to pop?  For some to be thinking about growning and setting up for seed production...

The tidings of spring fill your bags with the last of the winter roots and the beginnings of spring's greenings.  Yellow carrots, fingerling potatoes, the last of the yellow onions and garlic, enlivened with a pea/sunflower shoot mix and either kale or spinach - field grown, over-wintered; and scallions!  Oh, the tricks of a farmer, all in hopes of pleasing yiour end-of-winter pallet.

IMAGINE: the taste of harvest crops gracing your table this late fall and winter; carrot ginger soup; roasted beet and toasted walnut salad; pizza topped with winter squash and caramelized onions; hot German potato salad made with waxy finterling potatoes - a seasonal palette of savory, mineral-rich local, organid foods!

Notes from the Field:

Perspective: This is a word that I feel helps encapsulate the 2011 growing season.  This season has brought exponential growth in farming confidence, groundedness in the community, and the evolution of the social support systems that fuel Dig Deep.  I feel nothing but gratitude.

Dig Deep Farm Fall 2011 - Potluck and Season Extension

Oct

Hello CSAers and friends-

I hope this note finds you all enjoying the beginnings of the fall season. The end of season to-do list is coming into scope: the root vegetable harvest, mowing and discing summer vegetable crops that have gone-by, seeding open ground with cover crop for the winter, seeding and mulching garlic, securing the outdoor winter greens growing experiment, cutting new tomato trellises; the list grows and priorities shift as cooler temperatures draw near; thoughts for next season are coming to fruition as the physical efforts for this season draw to a close.

Notes from the field:

I wish we grew fall raspberries.  Now that the pace of life has shifted, I had the great opportunity to take a day and a half off to visit long time friends in western Massachusetts.

It seemed like every roadside stand was advertising "local peaches"; I made a stop at my former stomping grounds, Hampshire College, to purview the Farm Center - they hae an on-campus CSA with pick-your-own fall tomatoes, beans, flowers and raspberries
