The annual event- removing the pump from the river. This time it was much easier since we had done it once before
We have an official farm sign now. It was made by a vendor from the Grants Pass Farmers Market and he did the most amazing job
We planted another 3,000 strawberries for next year. But we also kept the older crop of strawberries so we can compare the differences in production.
This year we decided to mulch the pathways between the strawberry beds to hopefully keep the weeds down. It’s always quite the battle.
We have had an amazing cauliflower crop this fall. In this picture, Jeff is holding one that weighed about 5 pounds. And we were told by the customer who got it that it made a delicious cream of cauliflower soup
This was all of the winter squash we harvested back in September. We had butternut, delicata, acorn, spaghetti, pie pumpkins, carving pumpkins, and decorative gourds.
We harvested all of our dry beans, laid them out on a tarp and stomped on them until they popped out
Here you can see the beans after all of our hard work
Parsnip love. This was a fun surprise when we were harvesting
All of our fields have been mowed down, disced, and seeded with cover crop. Doesn’t it looks strange?
Our happy chickens eating all the farm compost. No wonder we get such amazing eggs
This was the onion/garlic field that we planted with our fall crops. It’s been hit with some heavy frosts, as you can see in this picture, so we shall see if it can hang on through the winter
Oh and some big news….Jeff and I got married! It was on our farm, we grew all the food, and we got to share it with most all of our friends and family. Best weekend ever!
