"...the fate of local farms is a metaphor about the fate of the environment if we don’t support it." A story by Multimedia Mavericks from Georgetown University about One Acre Farm. Reading this, especially the facts accompanying the picture slideshow, even us farmers learned about farming.

Thank you Multimedia Mavericks for coming out to the farm and *listening*. You really got the essence of this farm. And thank you to Sarah Denhardt Cissna for your great contribution! Well said.

Green Tomatoes, what to do with you?

We've got a bunch of storage tips and recipes up on the blog. Most recent, GREEN TOMATOES.

You may be familiar with the iconic film, "Fried Green Tomatoes" with an all-star female cast. One of the ways the characters connect is by making and eating fried green tomatoes, a heart warming and belly warming dish. But that's not all you can do with a green tomato in your midst. You can add the...

One doesn’t normally find fresh onions in the supermarket. Part of eating LOCAL is that you get the FRESHEST you can possibly get. Our CSA members get the special treat if receiving fresh onions in their shares this week. It’s a double whammy, not only can one use the globe of the onion as a regular onion, the tender green shoots can be used like scallions. A nice addition to many a meal! Blog post about it just up.

Not all heroes wear capes. Today I could not figure something out and called @susan_jamison33 (technically Robert) for help via phone. Instead, he drove over and walked me through it step by step, in person! Even gave me a formula. That’s like having a CPA in April take time to explain tax law. We are so lucky to have such farmers in our region who care enough to teach the #nextgenerationfarmer

Some people can make a really good guesstimate of spacing for planting. Some people just have that knack. But others, like us, realllly need help planting equidistant. That’s where this *dibbler* comes in. This super cool tool from @twobadcatsllc allows us to plant by hand, and do it in a neat precise manner. It’s quick, easy, and efficient. We love it. We would’ve never know about it if it wasn’t for talking with incredible fellow farmers that are always willing and open to share their experiences and advice. Thank you, @footprintfarm 🥰. Mentorship, learning, and sharing is so important in this adventure.

This Sunday we’ll be inviting people on to the farm for the first tour since 2019. We’re excited to share how we grow, what we grow, and what we do. This butterhead lettuce is a gorgeous example of what we’ll have for sale, as well. We can even point you to the exact spot it was harvested from. This is an opportunity to learn and eat well!

Last year, we mulched our walking paths for tomato beds with old hay. Our next door neighbor happens to be a hay farmer, so it worked out great. But then, we crunched the numbers and found that spreading a dozen or so bales down one row of 200 ft was prrrrrretty expensive. And took forever. And made people sneeze. So, this year we’re trying something new. We purchased reusable landscape fabric from Rain Flo and are now laying it along our long-season crops (stuff that’s in the ground for a while, like peppers, eggplant, and tomatoes). Let’s see how it goes.

Having the time to sit down in the field and check planting records is a treat at this time of the year. We’re working to get better with recording what varieties do well, and what don’t. Usually, we just rely on our memories/gut in January when we place our seed orders. But this year, we’re working with a cool app called @tend_ag that is helping us keep track of everything. It feels like an accomplishment every time we log a planting. We applaud those that have recognized the importance of #innovation and #technology in small farm operations. These sorts of apps that are specifically created for small farms, are elevating our ability to be better stewards of the land. And remember things! 🌱

Caught a glimpse of myself yesterday while on the tractor. Not prepared for the super chilly wind I had to run to the barn and ask for any extra warmth. Katherine lent me her jacket, Charlotte her neck warmer. Got me thinking. One quick decision 20 years ago to volunteer on a farm was the seed that grew to what we have today. #hardwork #loveourteam #howhasthisbeen20years

The glorious duty of wheel-hoeing in a rocky field. It is a job not for the timid. We wheel hoe in our field’s walking paths to keep w**d pressure down. It’s much more accurate for us to w**d manually than using the tractor cultivator, and reduces compaction. It also gives us a chance to work off any excess energy 😂.

The better we do today, the better it will be tomorrow.

I’ve said it so many times it’s getting ridiculous but I’ll say it again. Working with Ellen Plant to Profit is the best way to ensure your farm will be successful. She can’t make you something your not, but with her help you simply cannot fail.

Best decision you will make on your farm.

Surprised to get this check = a milestone first ever royalty check from Start Your Farm! Wow. 13000 copies sold so far. And still super relevant. Thanks Forrest for asking me to partner with you. #planttoprofit #startyourfarm

One Acre Farm's 2021 CSA is open for Enrollment! We hope it's going to be our best year, yet!
Thank you, American Farmland Trust!
Big fans of the carrots today!
We were big fans of the carrots in yesterday’s share!
I used half of my squash from last week’s share to make these, and they’re delicious!! Recipe: https://www.marthastewart.com/1541484/zucchini-dill-pickles
How can I join the group
Sooo many stuffed peppers with squash, tomatoes, eggplant, and ground turkey.
What are you making for dinner with your #CSAFarm veggies from @oneacrefarm? Bucatini with zucchini, red onions, shallots, and garbanzo beans finished with grated fresh Parmesan and smoked olive oil.
Stuffed peppers from our 1AF haul of green and purple peppers. Soooooo yummy!
Gazpacho made from One Acre Farm veggies!
Oh, look! I'm using my compostable produce bag from One Acre Farm to gather up my vegetable trim as I make soup. Once I'm done chopping and peeling, the whole bundle can go into my compost heap. Thanks, Farmer Mike!
