As the summer CSA has reached its mid-way point, the abundance of produce continues to roll in. The days are long with harvesting and processing of the season’s bounty. Our winter checklist of items put away grows with tallies each week. Pickled beets, pickled cauliflower, frozen sweet corn, broccoli, salsa, soups, roasted tomato sauce, etc. There’s satisfaction in knowing that all of the harvest will be there this winter to nourish us through the cold days.
But there’s still more varieties of things to come such as potatoes, carrots, winter squash, salad greens, arugula, spinach, radishes. There’s been a delay in our carrots this year due to the challenging growing conditions earlier in the year. However, they will come eventually.
If you’ve been to the farm lately, you’d notice a few projects underway. There’s a large excavation area in the garden area which is being prepped for our new greenhouse. This spring our old high tunnel was damaged with the wind storm that blew through our area. Our new greenhouse will include a stronger bracing system and a gothic style frame to better shed snow. We’re also incorporating a rather basic air heating system to move the hot air from the roof of the greenhouse into tubes which run through the soil under the growing area of the greenhouse. We hope to add extra harvesting days by having warmer soil conditions by using minimal electricity by powering the fans to exchange this air.
The other experiment in the garden is a large cement growing bed which is made out of cement feed bunkers. This is the new raised carrot bed here on the farm and is full of happily growing baby carrots. This innovation has been added due to the emphasis of the farm trying to grow smarter, not harder.
