Backyard Gardens’ CSA: Week 22 – November 1, 2012 (Last Week!)

    This is the last CSA distribution for the season!  We hope that you have enjoyed the variety of fresh produce that we’ve provided throughout the season.  Overall, it averaged out to be a good growing season, with bumper tomato and bean harvests, but compromised lettuce and fall crop production, both due to the […]

With snow blanketing the garden beds and nighttime temperatures approaching the teens, the season has fast-tracked towards the end.  It ain’t over yet, but we’re hurriedly clearing the fields of the last of the harvestable crops and wrapping things up outside for the season.  We still have to plant garlic, which is always a fun […]

Backyard Gardens’ CSA: Week 16- September 20, 2012

Summer meets Fall. That describes the juxtapositions around here.  We’re still harvesting loads of tomatoes from the greenhouses and Imnaha.  Ripe melons sweeten the air and our tongs.  And yet the first frost has nipped the beans and squash, bringing their production to a near halt.  And the shorter days of the equinox markedly slow […]
