Farm Update 08-31-23

The end of summer holiday is here, although honestly it doesn’t mean a whole lot to me, as the work on the farm will continue just the same even after it comes and goes. Still, it does mark a shift in focus, and of course, for families it means the kids return to school. As a reminder, for the holiday weekend, the farm stand will be open an extra day with the following hours.

Friday 10 – 6
Saturday 10 – 6
Sunday 10 – 4
Monday 10 – 4

In the field, the rains have succeeded in making a good old mess of things. The damage is now rather extensive, with zucchini completely ruined, and the Tomatoes suffering badly also. Still, I am harvesting what I can, so please be sure to check the What’s Available page for current offerings.

While many flowers are still at full bloom, the Gladiola will be ending soon. The second plantings are blooming very rapidly, and as a result, will likely be finished within a week or two. Field Flowers should hold on until real cold weather sets in.

In the coops, the chickens continue chickening. The Broiler Chickens are getting bigger faster than previously expected, and while I’m not yet giving a specific date of availability for fresh ones, it will likely be a week earlier than expected.

I know this is a shorter update, but I think that’s it for this week. Thanks again to everyone who has come by and helped support the farm. Hope you all have a great week and a nice Labor Day.
