Hey everyone,

We hope all is well and the end of summer transition is  going smoothly for everyone so far.  We are also trying to get into the swing of things here at the farm.  Trying to find a balance between all the responsibilities, the harvests, the plantings, and the animals.  Although there are even less hours in the day (both literally and figuratively) we’re confident we’ll find a way to balance everything out.  With certain types of responsibilities comes certain simplicities.  Like all new things you only truly understand it when you see it through the whole way.  So here’s to seeing it through…

Tomato harvest this week has been the biggest it’s been all season with the heirlooms finally kicking into gear.  We’ve had some pretty chilly nights the past few days with temperatures in the high 30’s so if you’re planning to can or freezing extra vegetables now is the time to do it!  Chop up all those peppers, bag those tomatoes whole and stick them right in the freezer.  Save it for later to make some homemade sauce  or soup when you have some time to do it on one of those chilly winter nights.  If you’re looking for any extras this week or next we have 10, 20, 30+ lbs of saucing tomatoes available for purchase.  Just send us an email and let us know.

Also, if anyone is interested in doing an egg share for the next 6 weeks please let us know!  The girls are getting into the swing of things over here at the farm and if your enjoying our veggies it only makes sense to be confident where your eggs are coming from too!  They are wholesome and delicious and we guarantee these ladies are the best loved chickens around.  Help support these hard workin’ little ladies and the farm.  These are all things that you can feel really good about.

Friday Night Films on the Farm.  We are so excited to say that we’ll be showing The Fantastic Mr. Fox this Friday at dusk.  Please arrive 10-15 minutes early to enjoy the sunset (it’s at 7:20) and we’ll be starting the movie shortly thereafter.  Bring warm clothes and a blanket to wrap in incase it gets a little chilly.  A $5 donation is appreciated.

Thanks (as always) to everyone for your encouragement and support!  We couldn’t do it with out you.  And for those who have been asking, we are planning on sitting down in the next few days to finalize our CSA extension for this season and put it out there to everyone by early next week.  Thanks for being patient and understanding while we learn to juggle all these new exciting possibilities…

faithfully yours,

your farmers

dirty hands, clean hearts
