Every year on the farm, awesome stuff happens, things we consider successes (and…. some less-than-awesome stuff….aka learning opportunities). There are lots of small things we consider successes, but we used the winter months to think back on the season as a whole. We each told each other a few special things we didn’t want to forget about 2017. Here’s what we said: The Swamp Milkweed flowered! It’s a biennial so it starts flowering during its 2nd year after planting. And Monarch butterflies found it! Basically, we were obsessed with watching the Monarch caterpillars chomp down on the milkweed plants and […]

Well, things on the farm have been busy and I’ve had plenty of thoughts I’ve wanted to share with you…..then another day passes….

The melons have been ripening during August and we’ll have lots of delicious fruit for the market in September. This year, the majority of our melons were planted under a caterpillar tunnel and we’re really happy with the quality (and flavour) compared to other years. Overall, we’ve found the abundance on the farm this season to be wonderful and sometimes overwhelming with just the two of us. But we are feeling a lot of gratitude for that abundance, as well as the abundance of kindness and thankfulness of our wonderful customers. We couldn’t be luckier to feed such amazing people! […]
