Farm News:

We’re busily planting seedlings, weeding crops and getting ready for the CSA to start. It’s amazing how fast and slow time can go by. This chilly and wet weekend has thrown me for a loop and has me wondering about crops that aren’t really made for this kind of weather. I’m chomping at the bit to get beans planted – but when the ground is soggy and cold they are destined for slow germination and possibly rot. I might as well wait, bide my time and get better germination in a week.

We’ve planted a lot so far, and I’m thrilled with how we’re keeping up. We have tomatillos, tomatoes, husk cherries, onions, carrots (need to be weeded), beets (also need to be weeded), kale, broccoli, cabbage, potatoes, peppers, eggplants, cucumbers, squash, lettuce, chard, peas, spinach, flowers, and a variety greens already planted. We still have a ton of tomatoes and hot peppers to get into the ground and am looking forward to another round of “summer” crops to be planted. All we need now is a short dry spell!

Funnily enough, we direct seeded sunflowers probably a month ago. They have germinated and are about 6″ tall and still growing. This weather has had some crazy fluctuations! I can only hope that we don’t get blasted with another dry and hot summer. It’s impossible to keep a farmer happy with the weather – because if we get a cold wet summer, our tomatoes will be in jeopardy!

Pastured Meats

We have several pigs that are coming back to us from the butcher – which means boxes and boxes of frozen meat. We need to make room!
