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 […]

Hi! I hope everyone got all their swimming and such in because it seems like cooler weather from here on out. With the fall equinox approaching fast we are looking at the last harvest for some delectable veggies due to the low temperatures. Get your green beans, basil, squash, and cucumbers through order or market […]

Hello! Liz here.  Beth is off again this week on a catering trip, so the crew is holding down the fort.  Luckily for us, the weather is cooling off and with the shortening days, the vegetables (and weeds) aren’t growing at quite as furious a pace.  But never fear — we’re still pulling lots of […]

Backyard Gardens’ CSA: Week 12 – August 23, 2012

We’re in full summer mode around here, which means that we are spending more time harvesting and handling produce than we have time for weeding and maintaining the gardens.   The consistent heat of the last month is cranking out volumes of summer crops – squash, beans, and cucumbers.  Larger slicer tomatoes are finally starting to […]

Happy Day! The tastes of summer are here. Vine ripe tomatoes, fresh basil bursting with vigor, crisp, refreshing cucumbers, beans, beans and more beans. Our flowers are starting to pop open with an array of colors, shapes and sizes. The flowers are ready to share their beauty with all of you. If you are not […]

Correction

Just a quick correction.  There were no parsnips in the CSA bin this week.  That was a misread from the harvest list.  You’ll have to wait for those until much later in the season.  Enjoy the tastes of summer!!

Hello there! Cole here. I’ve just gotten back from doing our weekly harvest down by Imnaha.  Lately when I’ve looked at the calendar,  I’ve been fretting how soon fall will be here, but when I am down on BYG’s half acre plot on Little sheep creek, summer still looks in full swing.  The peppers are […]

“The glory of gardening: hands in the dirt, head in the sun, heart with nature. To nurture a garden is to feed not just on the body, but the soul.” -Alfred Austin Howdy! We’ve been busy constantly revamping our beds to transplant more greens! The flowers are looking beautiful and add a magnificent dash of […]

More changes are coming to the garden: the potatoes are flowering, the beans are climbing their trellises, and […]
