From Cruising Along to…

I wanted to show a happy picture, freshly sprouted carrots, cultivated to perfection, by hand.

2018 thus far has been rolling right along, so much so that I was beginning to wonder if I was missing something. Somewhat automatic. Tuesday, tax day, changed that. Not a catastrophic event, but a minor set back. With winds at 60 mph and gusts recorded at 80 mph, the day was a challenge for all of the vegetables trying to grow in the fields and those of us trying to work along with them. Really resilient crops such as snap peas even took a knock. We lost some plants and a few row covers were torn to shreds, but again just a bump in the road. Time is on our side and we are on on schedule. The hearty live on and the first small harvest of the season happened today. Arugula, spicy green mix and D’avignon radish.

There is no place for complacency, especially in this line of work. Stay on your toes. Experience tells me that time and again. There is something to be said for relaxing, but try to always remember a stitch in time saves nine, one years seeds is seven years weeds. Until next time

We are only human after all.

Back at it

The 2017 season is underway. The greenhouse is stuffed full of young plants and we have carrots, beets, lettuce, spinach and arugula emerging in the field. The plants are growing quickly and if all goes well we will begin harvesting in just a few weeks.  We are thankful to be back for our 8th season at the farm and are looking forward to bringing fresh vegetables to your table all summer long!

With tomatoes growing north to south and east to west this season, we’ve got Little Purdue completely confused.
