Donations Graciously Accepted

 This may sound like I’m looking for a handout – I’m not.  But if there is any “junk” at your house that you’re looking to get rid of, chances are the farm could use it. Recent donations to Sol Harvest Farm include rubber bands, seeds, diatomaceous earth (I know, that’s a big word for a farmer), baby scales circa 1950 (you use it to weigh your potatoes), sprinklers, and beer.  All are...

Saturday Work Days

While evenings can be magical on the farm, morning is without a doubt the best time to work on a farm.  I mean, what better way to start the day than by…pulling weeds.  Well, it won’t all be focused on weeding.  This is a busy time of year for seeding.  With Fall just around the corner there’s lots of seeds to get into the ground.  For example, I need to re-seed the broccoli – man is that plant giving me a problem this year.  But I’m gonna win!  There will be broccoli in your box – in like February, but whatever. So if weeding and seeding and broccoli bashing isn’t enough to entice you out to the farm, how about some delicious food from Farm & Table Restaurant?  I’m happy to report that all Saturday volunteers will receive a $5 voucher to use at the restaurant.  Thanks to our wonderful partnership with Farm & Table the fruits of your labor will really start to pay dividends on Saturday mornings!  Join us each Saturday from 8am to 11am. Also, we’ll be having a Farm Stand every Saturday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Fresh produce from the field (some of it harvested by you).  It really is all...

Here’s what’s coming out of the fields this week: Bunching Onions Rainbow Chard Kohlrabi Braising Mix Beets (and I think we’ve got enough summer squash and sugar snap peas too – just have to check the field in the morning)!...

Many hands make a work party…a party!

Much to do on the farm, which means many hands are needed.  Please come out to Sol Harvest Farm this evening between 4 – 7 p.m. for a work party, followed by a potluck. Rather than be predictable and put a hula hoe in your hands and send you off into the field to weed, here are some of the items on the agenda for tonight: – Restake tomatoes (fruit is starting to emerge – very exciting)! – Pull up broccoli plants in hoop house (SO over them) – Pull up lettuce plants from bed 31 – Harvest tatsoi; prep for braising mix – Hand weed tomato bed, keeping an eye out for emerging carrot seedlings (carrots and tomatoes are good companion plants) – Haircut for Ric (pruning shears anyone…that would be sheer madness…or hair madness)! Hope to see everyone there…please bring food or drink to share! Cheers, Farmer...
