Potato harvest cancelled!

Filed under: Farm updates — Chris O'Brien @ 7:37 pm

Early this evening heavy showers moved across the farm, saturating the soil enough so that we won’t be able to pick potatoes tomorrow.

We’re still planning on potlucking, though, and taking a walk or two around the farm between showers.  Come join us for a picnic in our very large greenhouse!

As planned we’ll start at 12:30.  See you then!

The work party is canceled tomorrow, but the open house is still on.  We’ll start at 11:30.  Bring your raingear and rubber boots if you have them!

The potatoes will have to wait for another day to get into the ground.

Filed under: Farm updates — Chris O'Brien @ 11:59 pm

Our first distribution for the 2010 season will commence next Tuesday, May 4th.  Members can meet us at our S.E. Portland pickup site at the Tucker-Maxon school between 5:00 and 7:00, or at the farm any time after 4:00.

What can you expect in your share in the early weeks of May?  Here’s a short list: baby beets, pac choi, scallions, kale, leeks, lettuce, radishes, turnips, and mustard greens, among other items.

A new year of  seasonal eating awaits us all.  We’ll see all our members  next Tuesday!

New Blog!

Filed under: Farm updates — Chris O'Brien @ 10:24 pm

Welcome to our new farm blog. This is where we will post weekly CSA newsletters, as well as updates on what is happening around the farm. We’re excited about our upcoming 2010 season!

There’s a lot of planting going on these days – the below photo shows the beginning of an ambitious onion planting session in which we planted over 3,000 onion and shallot starts.
