They are under row cover and have already weathered 3 frosts nicely. They'll be fine unless we have a night in the mid to low 20's, in which case I'll be

Farm Update
After a brief flirt with spring, it seems we're into full blown summer! Before the snow was even gone, Pete, Steve, and Meg were taking turns out on the tractors prepping fields as they dried. Potatoes started going into the ground this weekend. It seemed like one day the lower fields by the river were under water, and the next they...

Farm Update - from Pete
Hi Folks,
We are running about 2 weeks behind the scheduled beginning of salad mix and other fresh, green, spring vegetables. The main reason for this delay is that we have been focused on our construction project and slightly less focused on... Read more...

Farm Update
After the harvest last fall, we had tons of bagged storage vegetables stacked to the rafters in our large root cellar. Those colorful carrots, rainbow roots and beautiful beets have sustained us well over these long, cold months. But now, as the days lengthen, we are beginning to see a few empty palettes and hints of bare floor. We... Read more...
