Now that the formalities are out of the way, let’s talk about our work week!
We started out the week needing A LOT of supplies. Our boss has been working super hard to produce the best jellies, relish, and bird rub for you, our supporters! Come to our farmers market Saturday and check our NEW basil, and mint jelly, but also our PopPops sweet relish, and Dill Carrot relish.
For the most part this week we have been trying to dig up our potatoes. So far we have our Adirondack Blue, Yukon Gold, and some Fingerling potatoes!
Adirondack Blue: it is a variety that is blue flesh/ ski with a slight purple tint.
Yukon Gold: thin, smooth, eye free skin, and yellow-ish flesh
Fingerling: small, stubby, finger shaped type of potato. They naturally grow small and narrow.
We are also getting our pheasants nice and comfortable in their new pens. In pheasants, blinders have been shown to reduce the incidence of birds pecking each other and damage to the feathers or skin. In laying hens, blinders have been shown to reduce feather pecking, and increase egg production. Our pheasants will be available to order at the end of October.
A few reminders:
Our Turkeys are averaging 12lbs right now so get your preorders in, they are almost ready! Just $15 to preorder yours today.
We’ve went ahead and planted some of our greens this week, we started with the lettuce so be on the lookout for when we start harvesting! Our kale, and collards on the other hand we pulled out our old veggies and tilled. Getting your soil ready for more planting is very important. Next up, chard, kale, and cabbage.
We also took the time to trellis our tomatoes because they’re getting HUGE. Good thing too, because we kept finding Tomato Hornworm Caterpillars. If you see them make sure you either relocate far away or feed them to your chickens. These caterpillars start feeding on the leaves on the upper parts of the plants. They often blend in with the leaves and might not be noticed until most of the damage is done. One caterpillar can finish off a whole plan in as little as two days, if its appetite is big enough.
How can you prevent them? Well there are a number of organic products that work great against these buggies. Spinosad is a bacterial insecticide that was discovered on rotted sugar cane outside of rum distillery. The bacteria has been found to assist the degradation of insects exoskeleton which prevents them from completing their life cycle. We also use a compound known as pyrethrin, which is derived from the essential oils of the chrysanthemum plant.
Pretty soon we will be planting lots of the other transplants we have ready to go also, peppers, cantaloupe, winter squash, and so much more.
Last but not least we are looking for another employee to be on our team. If you love working outside, with your hands, with animals, or love landscaping send us a message and we will lead you to an application!
CSA slots are still open. We are offering 5% off if you sign up in person at any of our markets!
Don't forget we also have slots available for volunteers. Need volunteer hours for a club or school? Looking to learn about where your food comes from and how it's produced? Are you just in need of a reason to get outside, maybe burn a few calories? Contact us today if you're interested!
