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!

Nothing screams awesome farmer more than taking a five min job of removing a hose and turning it into an 1 1/2 expletive filled scream fest. But it’s done. And perhaps I should look for a new job!

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.

Not easy picking and tossing these melons in the pouring rain. Only broke a few but certainly a challenge. You don’t need CrossFit when you work on a farm, that’s for sure.

I’d really like to figure out a way to offer these amazing flower arrangements on a regular basis to our members. Who would be interested? They are farmed and foraged from our county and they are simply amazing. If you ever need flowers for an event or just because, look no further than Sungold Flower Co.
