  • I went into our local Goodwill yesterday and scoffed at the Halloween decor....in August!?! Then today, I walked into the winter squash....and scoffed at August. #wtf #Howdenforthewin #cantdrivebygoodwillwithoutstopping
  • Inspecting the 2018 onion crop. Almost time for the allium avalanche. This is a crop that we love and cherish, but which always has us questioning our decisions. There’s a long row to hoe from a tiny seed in January to a clean, glossy, cured storage onion in November. Varieties from left to right are: Ed’s Red Shallots, Karmen, Rossa Di Milano, Dakota, Sedona, Siskiyou Sweet, Ailsa Craig. #fortheloveoffood #itallstartswithanonion #notacommodity #weneedmoreonionracks.

  • Marvel, Cilantro, Parsley, Sweet Alyssum...and weeds. We often inter-plant these early Spring market beds in order to maximize our timing and use of valuable space. And it’s beautiful. The lettuce will come out next week, then we’ll weed the parsley while letting about half of the cilantro go to flower. The Alyssum and Parsley will be managed (and watered) all season and we’ll likely save seed from the cilantro before the year is out.  So many services from one 100’ bed. #beautifultiming #succession #diggindiversity #digginrootsfarm
  • The first great brassica reveal of 2018. Lots of gorgeous kale headed to the Silverton Farmers’ Market tomorrow. #fleabeetlesbebummin’
