We've got the whole family working on the farm now. Our new interns for 2019, Esha and Claire, Jennifer, little Edwin, and Matt behind the lens.
Despite the atmospheric river, onions must be planted. 6 years in a row now, our onion planting day is a soaker.

Oh hi! It's been a while. As you can see, we've been busy. Time to climb back out of our cozy little cave and share some photos again. We missed you!

Come visit us at our last market of the year today! We'll be slinging veggies at the Harvest Market in downtown Vancouver until 2pm. We have some pretty cool stuff today, like cornmeal, hearts of fennel, loads of greens, taters, and more. Plus Jennifer's huge pregnant belly!

As the rhythms of Fall settle in around us, we have time for more trips into the woods. Always bring a knife and a bag. Do you know all of these earthly treats?

Last day to register to vote in Oregon! Get off the couch! And stop chasing the cats. It was a stretch finding a photo to go with this message...

As much as we enjoy hand digging our taters, the time has come for some technological leverage.
We started our potato adventure last year with just 3 beds, scraping them up each week as needed. This year we tripled that space, and honestly we could probably still get away with hand work. Next year, however, in an effort to keep the notorious garden symphylan at bay, we are bumping that up to at least half an acre.
Still getting the hang of this little digger, it's definitely meant for a smaller tractor and single rows of plants, but hot damn does it speed things up!

Dry-farmed Costoluto Fiorentino. Tart, rich, and meaty.

Not that we're keeping records here or anything, but this has got to be a personal best for longest carrot. Purple Elite, planted in April, cropped out and forgotten until I was removing drip tape to get ready to till. It comes in at 30" from tip to shoulders. I'm a sucker for crazy carrot photos, anyone else got some doozies?
