Notes From The Farm

Sorry this week’s newsletter is late, short, and pretty much useless in terms of information.  But we have been busy with our new puppy!  Some of you heard that our beautiful doggie-love, Nali died from cancer this June.  We were heartbroken.  To be honest farming has pretty much been a bummer since she got sick.  When the life of the party goes away, well, there is no party.  While we still miss her terribly we felt it was time for a bit of new light and love.

Lulu is a 7 month old, curious, friendly, big pup.  We are not sure how she is around vehicles so, as always, please be careful driving onto the farm.

This Week’s Veggie Feast

New This Week

Poblano Pepper

Poblano peppers are mild, and beautifully dark green.

Red Onions

The red onions look beautiful this year.  They have a bit more zip than the sweet whites and a festive color!  They are still fresh and uncured.

Cherry tomatoes

We are trying to get everyone some tomatoes over the next couple of weeks.  It’s been  sloooooooow progress for the plants, but they are finally starting to ripen.  We have also had a really surprising pest, California quail!  Who knew they like tomatoes?!  We have caught them in our greenhouses several times munching on ripe slicing tomatoes.
