Farm Update April 1, 2017

Today is a busy one at the farm. One crew is harvesting, another is making a new asparagus bed and we are also working on installing fixtures in the tiny house.

Yesterday was cool and blustery most of the day. A full rainbow was visible to the west for over an hour as the rain was moving through the area while the harvest progressed.

We started delivering to the Sierra Vista Food Co-op again after a hiatus since last September. Yesterday I delivered red and green salad mix and large leaf spinach in 5 oz. deli boxes. This packaging is made from bioplastic and is compostable.

I also made an early evening delivery to The Quarry in Bisbee. If you are in southeastern AZ, check out our produce at either of these two places.

This week at the markets we continue to reserve spots and accept payments for the spring/summer CSA program. The forms are available at the markets, and in the CSA box on the right sidebar of this website, and here. We will stick with a 50-share program this round, so please let us know if you are interested in a spot. The summer shares will include potatoes, blackberries, tomatoes, peppers, chiles, flowers, cucumbers,  melons, okra, squash, salad mixes, among many other tasty ingredients.

Farm Update December 17, 2016

What a difference a couple of days makes! Two days ago our high was 82° and this morning we are seeing precipitation in the form of little snow pellets. A howling wind came through early this morning ahead of the cold front and flattened many of our low-tunnel hoops. After the harvest today, we will be fixing the hoops and doubling up the rowcovers in anticipation of a 20° low temperature tonight.

The markets this weekend and next Wednesday will be the last ones for us for two weeks. We will not be at Rillito on Christmas nor New Year’s Day. Likewise we will not be in Green Valley the Wednesday between those two holidays nor the Wednesday after New Years.

We hope you have some fun and relaxing holidays!

Thank you for your support this past year and we look forward to providing you delicious vegetables in the New Year!
