It was a cold start to the winter, but no real snow until mid-February, when it came in bucket loads. Now the snow is starting to melt on the ground and there are pieces of green grass poking through around the bases of trees. We have onions seeded and happily growing and are about to seed brocolli and lettuce. The wheels of Rootdown 2014 Season are starting to slowly crank into motion. Here we go. The goal this year; to not let that momentum move so fast that it eventually sweeps us away! Here’s to a balanced enjoyable season.
The sun is shining, days are long, the diversity and bounty of mid-July is here, and we are working hard to keep up with it all.
This week, the sun has shined (a lot), and the warm loving crops of squash, tomatoes and cucumbers have doubled in size! This week, the season brings us some of the first carrots of the season, summer squash a plenty, nice greens, the last of the broccoli and cauliflower till the fall, and of course, the unique seasonal treat of garlic scapes.
Suggested recipes include Garlic Scape Pesto and Pickled Scapes.
Yes, we are off to another fantastic season. Chickens out on fresh pasture, pigs galavanting around in the tall grass, the vegetables bountiful and beautiful, growing quickly in the long daylight hours of the season. As we kick off the season, let’s introduce the faces that work hard to bring wonderful great food to the local community.
May was a busy month, as all Mays are in farming-Everything must happen at once. As the farm starts to get established for the season, vegetables in the fields, pigs on pasture, chicks roaming fresh grass, and farmers working to keep up with it all. Things are looking good as we transition into June, and thank you for keeping up with all our endeavours! Here are some snapshots from the past month.
Hope to see you soon. Check in for future updates.
Stay well fed. Team Rootdown
