Farm News for Saturday, May 20, 2017

Posted by

Hello all,

Sam was busy today laying black plastic mulch. We use it to warm the soil, suppress weeds and conserve irrigation water, delivered via a tube under the plastic.

Farm news
I'm sorry to say it, but for the second time in a row, I'm running late and don't have time to write this. I'm sorry! (Why am I late? My 97-year-old mother -- who lives with us here at the farm -- has had some recent dizziness and other symptoms which her doctor told me this afternoon, over the phone, that she should be taken to the emergency room for, although they were not life-threatening. After I spent much of the afternoon with her here, Chris has now taken her down to the nearest hospital while I try to get this store open!)


  • Every-other-week until the beginning of June. (This is the last two-week gap.)
  • Every week from June to Thanksgiving.
