After the thunderstorms at market on Thursday the tablecloths and tent were set out to dry - alas no rain at the farm!

Tell us what you think of this new red carrot variety. It has been growing great and looks beautiful. Red carrots don't seem to be as sweet as orange carrots though. It has been great to have the Purple Haze carrot seed available again; it has been missing for a few years and it is one our favorite varieties.

Keeping the watermelon radish seeds moist so they can germinate.

Have you tried the dry beans from Seneca Bean and Grain? Great organic and locally grown beans!

We have goats again. Well not really. We are borrowing our friends two bucks to help clean out our hedgerows. The hedgerows have really grown up in brush over the last couple years since we no longer have goats.

Milkweed flowering by the barn

No-till squash and cucumbers are going to be planted in these beds today, These beds are nicely mulched with the rye and vetch that was mowed a couple weeks ago.


On harvest mornings we place baskets of freshly harvested vegetables in the shade of the truck so they do not wilt before we can get them in for washing.


Yes, we will be at Grove Park on Monday July 4.
