    Notes from the Harvest Stand

    A brisk evening summons memories of fall while the skies tell tales of summer burns. We took care to protect all the delicate hots and to ventilate accordingly once temperatures shot up shortly after sunrise. Meanwhile our land thrives despite sudden seasonal change and welcomes an abundance of positive energy. Carrot tops leap from the […]

    What’s Cooking?

    Nothing is more rewarding than sharing the joy of good food grown well. Peppers and tomatoes ripen while waves of cucumber, squash, corn and lettuce continue to take off. Flowers and an adjacent hum of pollinators soothe the ears while sun rays sting necks left unprotected. No rain for weeks on end and water from the mountains […]

    The Mythic Central Oregon

    What is the word for the smell of growth and decomposition at the same time?  I thought it was Fecund.  This only describes abundance.  Today we are reeling from the swift snatch of our tender crops.  We lost 25 acres of beans, squash, corn, potatoes, and basil last night to a deep dip to 26 […]

    Spring: Turn the Dirt

                  This is the time of year that the earth digests its cover crops and composts so that nutrients can be available for our summer crops.  Organic farming takes time.  We don’t give our crops a shot of chemicals to grow.  We depend on our soil, and the billions […]

    February Harvest

    Central Oregon sunshine is the best… for growing stuff.  These classic clear, cold, nights and brilliant days are just fine for our cold hardy veggies.  We showed up to everything frozen solid this morning and by lunch, everything was thawed and spritzed and packed for our hardy winter CSA members.  Arugula, two different kinds of […]
