in anticipation of a beautiful fall . . .

. . . we've been very busy here at the farm.  My husband and a few friends have spent hours and hours building new raised beds, filling them with happy soil and adding new irrigation drips. The vintage gate has been repaired at least twice in the past two weeks, the market swept at least four times in the past week (thanks to that haboob) and we've had one doe go on a date with one of the bucks.

In the midst of seeding, reseeding, weeding and planting new starts, our daughter from PDX and her family spent two weeks with us. . . a wonderful full household, indeed.

Fall is my favorite time of year - a sweet reprieve from the summer heat and my favorite growing season.  Here's what we're planting for fall harvests and our market - which the re-open date has yet to be decided. Until then our Honor System Market will continue to be open. See here for current details.

French breakfast and other gourmet radishes
Cherry tomatoes
Yellow pear tomatoes
Heirloom tomatoes
Two kinds of swiss chard
Three varieties of kale
Several beet selections
Red Mustard
Several varieties of lettuce
Several varieties of carrots
Bunching onions
Herbs - lots of herbs

Eggplant along with some okra will continue to grow and be available.
