My friend Danielle has been working so hard on her next life adventure - if you are on the road needing a local coffee pick me up - swing through and check out the Prickly Pear Lounge in Howard, CO! Oh, and check out some of my paintings while you're at it! 🙌🏼 #10of365
Market garden and farm work aside, we built a house this year, too! The parents are all settled in, and now have a forever home to live long, be happy and eat well. Getting this house built was a full on family project. It was, still is, and will continue to be an amazing experience.
It sure is crazy to see an empty greenhouse after our first summer of abundance. Not long ago this whole thing was packed full of tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers and basil. Now, its all cleared out, composted, broadforked, shaped, and seeded for a little winter greens production.
As the cold nights get colder and the more we fight the freezing temperatures, we have mixed emotions about today being our last week for our CSA program. We set out at the beginning of the year to reach 20 weeks, but we have successfully and excitingly provided 18 weeks of our CSA in our very first year of production, and that is something we are proud about! There were a ton of firsts this year, and it has been an incredible learning experience. We couldnt be more thankful and grateful for all of our members who participated and supported us through this crazy and exciting year. It truly has been a pleasure to build relationships with this community of amazing people and provide happy and healthy food. We will be clearing out the greenhouse and seeding it for winter greens production. Next season we plan to expand and add members to our program, so stay tuned for future plans! Thank you all for your support!
Our thoughts and prayers go out to our friends in Northern California who are fighting through the crazy wildfires!!
This is 200 pounds of fresh organic produce going out for delivery to Simple Foods Market and Seasons Cafe in #salidacolorado this week. I think "We're gonna need a bigger boat!" So grateful for these accounts and the relationships made with people who are passionate about supporting local farmers!
This is something we love to see happening in the garden. Earthworms are an integral part of a biointensive gardening approach. They are doing all the hard work for us. Aerating the soil, eating up nutrient dense plant material, and giving us all of their fine castings for the best natural fertilizer you can get. #igotworms
We welcome afternoon spring storms with arms wide open. Good for the garden, good for the trees, good for the soul! The garden plots are filling up quickly...We will be siding the parents house this next week... Things are coming together!
