Maria has been working hard on getting the farm store all setup and organized for our open house and the farm tour weekend!

As she was doing it, she was wondering if there was an interest in us having farm store hours this fall and winter? If so, what days during the week (Monday through Friday) would be best for people? At this time, we are unable to offer weekend hours because of our other commitments. Please share your thoughts with us.

We began picking our Red Delicious and CrimsonCrisp trees today. We don't have a lot of nice CrimsonCrisp, so that variety probably won't make it to market . However, we may have Red Delicious available this week. Also, the duck crew was busy with cleaning up the drops as we went along.

You've won the squash bug war, you've fertilized regularly, and now you're reaping the harvest...really, really reaping. You slice, you shred, you bake, you bring bags full to your workplace, and still those happy plants are providing more squash. What's a Gardener to do?! Squashmingoes! 🤣

It was apple and mountain ash picking time this afternoon! The apple we picked is a wild one that grows by our goat pasture and surprisingly is providing a bountiful harvest despite the late frost this spring this year. As for the mountain ash , this tree grows next to the driveway where Shona, Tanner and Dane rent. We hope to start some more trees from the seeds.
