Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 22 — October 30, 2014

That’s a wrap, as they say. It’s been, I think everyone can say, a hell of a year. I mean that in both the good and the bad sense of the word. From Beth’s cancer to the smoky summer, the extended hiking season, and Kiersten’s early departure today to avoid imminent snow, this farming year […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 21 — October 23, 2014

Hold on to your hats, folks, weather’s blowin’ in! It’s been a little cold, a little windy, and a little wet, so naturally I’m drawn to warm things, both in terms of temperature as well as spiciness. When I think warm, I look back on my days in Vietnam at the beach, eating a freshly […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 20 — October 16, 2014

Howdy, y’all! This week has been a week of change, pretty drastic change. We, including Beth, made a Monday trek down to the Imnaha plot to clear it out. While we were down there, we were so in the zone that we helped clear out the Magic Garden as well. The good news is that the garden […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 19 — October 9, 2014

Hello again. This week everyone is fortunate enough to receive some kohlrabi. I know, it’s been a while, but recently we pulled all the kohlrabi out of the ground, some of which is regular sized, and some of which is super sized. That’s what happens when the storage kohlrabi goes all season long, hence the kohlrabi […]

Wow, so this go round we are not shying away from giving you tasty taters, and plenty of them. See, last week we decided to dig up the remainder of the crop, and now we have way too many potatoes to comfortably fit in Beth’s storage. That means you, lucky CSA members, get 3 or […]

Well, another summer is in the books, officially speaking, and we’ve got the produce to prove it. Our beans took a hit from that cold spell a couple weeks ago, but they bounced back with a vengeance, and we’re happy to share them with you! Since it’s fall, we finally started to harvest what few […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 16 — September 18, 2014

Hola, I know last week I was talking about the freezing weather, which seems silly in retrospect because of all the heat, fire, windstorms, and whatnot we’ve seen recently. Last night one of our hoop houses took the brunt of the storm and got all tangled and twisted.  Given that we are starting the process […]

Brrrr, it must be chilly because the geese are packing up and heading out for the coming winter. We’ll do our part and help keep the tomatoes around a little longer, especially since next Thursday, at the last Enterprise farmers’ market, as well as at the Saturday market, there’s a tomato tasting with 50 or […]

Backyard Gardens CSA: Week 14 — September 4, 2014

Welcome to another edition of the BYG CSA. As promised last go round, potatoes are in, and everybody gets some! Three pounds worth of Red Pontiacs to do with as you please, though I included a classic potato and green bean recipe because, you guessed it, green beans are in, too. Don’t be fooled by […]

What a beautiful day! I’ve taken after Glen, who we all keep seeing at work on the front porch while we’re washing, and so I’ve co-opted his office since he’s out for the afternoon 🙂 Glen knows that with this lovely weather it’s hard to stay inside for long, especially after it’s warmed up a bit from […]
