Finally we make it to our last week of the 2018 CSA season!  Though the farm beds are still shockingly green for the most part, it is dark and howling out there and it definitely feels like time to come indoors for the season.  We have run through most of the crops pla...

Just a reminder that next week will be the LAST week of this year’s CSA season.  Palmer folks will pick up as usual under the farmstand roof after 4pm next Wednesday, but there will not be a Farm Stand at the same time.  We will be around but might not be standing ther...

There’s a certain satisfying fatalism to preparing for a hard frost, especially at the tired end of a long summer.  I’ve been obsessively watching the weather forecast for a few weeks now, wanting to make sure we wait as long as possible but yet anticipate the first ha...

It’s been a lovely September so far!  After weeks of being wet and muddy, it’s a joy to be outdoors again enjoying some perfect Fall weather.

And it just keeps raining….

Shelling peas this week, these are the kind that you have to pop out of the shell.  They are so delicious they are definitely worth the extra work.  My personal favorite farm snack….  The potatoes are Yukon Gold.  The peppers are green but I...

These past two weeks have certainly tested all of our rain gear and positive attitudes (or lack thereof).  While it is “normal” to have grey drippy Augusts, these daily deluges are far from the norm!  A friend of mine who farms a few miles away measured over 8 inches o...

We need heat for tomatoes!  But not for new potatoes….
If I could write a haiku about your share I would, b...
