August 24, 2013

This week's farm news:

Just a reminder that fall share signups are happening now. If you have any questions, or need more information - just holler at us!

This week finally felt like summer. It's the most summer-like weather we've had since June, I think. The hotter days coupled with lots of sweat and dirt made the creek feel divine. In the garden we got a lot more seeds sown for our fall crops and Eric's frenzied pace and strong instinct "that it's time!" was rewarded with a very isolated and gentle rain. We sowed arugula, hakurei salad turnips, kale, cilantro, daikon, etc. In soil blocks we started Swiss chard, mizuna, more kale, and more lettuce. We also sowed about 600 row feet of Walla Walla onions with the hope of over-wintering them. And Eric corralled and sorted the sheep and pulled out about 20 (mostly young rams) which we took to a livestock auction in Bowling Green. Some of our dear fellow farming friends were doing the same thing so we met at the auction facility and then went for coffee at a lovely locally owned coffee shop in downtown Bowling Green - "Spencer's". It was a fun treat.

And finally, Farmer Cher is taking a little break from market this weekend to celebrate her big 4-0(!) birthday! Oh my! See you next week a little older and hopefully a little wiser...
