A bit of a short blog and few photos this week as I have not been able to find very much time to spend on it and the photos are very slow to load to the website.
A very hot week again which is really quite nice for the vegetables. But we are also getting quite dry which is really not so nice for the vegetables. We have been doing some watering in the garden now for the past week and more. We have only a single sprinkler head that we move every hour or hour and a half. The water source is our well which is capable of supplying the water that we are taking out this way but we have no other easily gotten water. Hopefully we will get some rain within the next three days but it does not look too promising though cooler weather seems to be coming after Wednesday.
On Saturday we had our annual potluck supper and farm tour for our CSA members. We had a pretty good turnout though we missed several who were unable to make it that day. The supper was really nice with some very inventive delicious dishes of veggies served up. we did a bit of a farm tour before the meal but we need to rethink how we do the tour as it takes too long because we spend a lot of time talking about everything. We need to do more of these throughout the season.
We are now a little better stocked up on beef and we have another beef going to the butcher’s on October 3 and several lambs will be going in over the next month too. Contact us if you are interested. Send an e-mail, don’t use the comments section as It is difficult to use from my end.
