Hello friends!

Boy, we can’t get over how different the weather has been this week.  A little mix of sun and clouds, cooler and much more enjoyable weather to work in!  It’s almost starting to feel like the halfway mark of the season is here.  Sometimes the slight change in weather helps process just how fast time really does go by.

Thank you to everyone that made it out to the farm on Saturday.  It was nice for both of us to take a step back, show members the farm, talk about what we do and share in some homemade food!  We know that time is precious this time of the year and we hope to have another gathering over the weekend of the fall solstice which is a month from now.

TOMATOES!  The season for canning is here!  We have been harvesting an unbelievable amount of tomatoes this week… 470lbs to be exact and there are more ripening on the vine every day!  We’ve had a few members buy our “day old tomatoes,” at a steal of a price, in bulk for canning purposes.  If anyone is interested in purchasing 10, 20, 40, 60 + lbs of tomatoes please let us know.  They make great sauce, sundried tomatoes, ketchup, jam and more for filling up your pantry or giving as Christmas gifts!  Last fall we put together a little tomato canning how-to and you can check it out here.

We’re pleased to announce that the first film in our succession of outdoor Movie Nights on the farm will begin THIS Friday!  Who can resist Paul Newman & Robert Redford in Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid?  Come an hour early (at 7pm), pack a picnic dinner, bring a chair and watch the most amazing sunset from the farm! Movie starts at dusk (a little after 8pm). $5 donation suggested.

Happy week to you all!

Faithfully yours,

your farmers

dirty hands, clean hearts
