This past winter I gave a talk at futureharvestcasa.org and promised to start sharing photos of only things that were mistakes, or simply bad farming ideas etc. my rationale was that it’s easy to showcase when things are good, much harder and much more relatable to showcase when things are crap. Here is my first photo of my mistakes. Looking for a creative hashtag to organize it. As the season goes on, I’m sure more bad photos will appear!

Here is my first one. It is my first seeding of carrots and beets but bc the year before it was an overgrown weedy disaster, the weed pressure was so great that there was zero chance I could have kept it under control.

Hi Mike,

It's quite late in the season, but wanted to see if I could sign up for shares this year? Would love to come back after a year off - I didn't realize how much I appreciated it!

Thanks so much

This wind is causing havoc at the moment. Great day to fly a kite, awful day to plant and cover vegetables solo. If I don’t get some help soon, I might just meltdown before my normal meltdown period which I try to schedule around July 😀

And now only one. If you have been following me for years, you would recognize this pic doesn’t have the two guys that have been w me for quite some time. One has moved on and today, one is sick. So I’m out here transplanting our first cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower by my lonesome. As it turns out, farming never gets any easier!

Kale is now one of the most pesticide-contaminated vegetables

I really believe Csa is what catapulted kale to its popularity and look what happened. Perhaps your local farmer is the best source for your vegetables, what do you say?

https://www.cnbc.com/2019/03/20/kale-is-now-one-of-the-most-pesticide-contaminated-vegetables.html

Kale joins the "Dirty Dozen" list this year. The list of fruits and vegetables with the most pesticide contamination also includes strawberries, spinach, nectarines, apples, grapes, peaches, cherries, pears, tomatoes, celery and potatoes.

Kristin’s grandfather, who is no longer with us, always asked every time I saw him if we “got those potatoes planted yet!”

I wanted to remind him that we actually grew plenty of things not just potatoes but my usual response was either

“Not yet” or “yup!”

Well today we are getting those potatoes planted. He would be proud!

When life gives you lemons...

I ordered the wrong version of #azomite this year, I wanted granular but ordered micronized (think baby powder!). You can’t possibly spread this bc it would literally go everywhere so I’m mixing it w my compost. Who knows, maybe I just stumbled upon a great new compost amendment!

My goal started simply enough, to not buy from amazon for myself this season. Nothing against amazon per se, although there is plenty to be against, I’m just tired of it. How can I ask the public to support a local farm when I don’t 100% support my local businesses?

I think the challenge is too easy. So now I’m gonna try this.

Can I go the whole season without buying anything online? Just from local or regional businesses. Let’s see how we do!

Getting a delivery of bloom from dc water.
Going to use it as an experimental vegetable garden to educate about ways to reuse our most abundant fertilizer on planet earth, our own waste! Grossed out? You shouldn’t. It’s the way civilizations have for millennia grown nutritious, nutrient dense food.
Of course we won’t use it in our actual production of food for our own consumption, it’s still too taboo, but I think it will be a great conversation starter.

Powerful East Coast storm may develop Friday into the weekend

Due to this, we will be postponing our farm party scheduled for this Saturday. Keep an eye out for a new date if we are able to find one!

The storm may form as a strong cold front combines with the remnants of Category 5 Hurricane Willa, about to hit Mexico’s west coast.

This has been the most challenging farming year in my 10 year career. Start w a brand new farm and all the things necessary to start getting the soil alive again and add to it the hell that was our weather this year.

All that being said, I have had to alternate weeks for my csa members so that I have enough.

A more gracious group you cannot find. They have been so supportive of all the challenges this farming year has brought and it reminds me why the csa model is so important to all farmers.

A farmers only goal really is to to keep being able to farm. We don’t get into it for the money (hint: there is none) or bc of the easy workload. It’s working the land, educating the community and making something from nothing. That’s why I Farm.
