It feels like the tipping point has been reached this season, when, instead of coaxing the plants along, we are running to keep up! We harvested garlic (just enough for the homestead):
The flowers are starting to open... bouquets are in our future!
The first planting of sweet corn is well on its way, despite onslaughts from crows, blue jays, and one wayward cow.
Did I mention we have cows now? They actually belong to another local farmer, and are helping manage our long-neglected pastures. Thankfully, they seem to like our many varieties of thistle.
The weather has cooled quite a bit in the last few days. Morning fog season has begun. This is really great for our salad and cooking greens, not so great for the warm-weather crops, and a huge relief for one eight-month pregnant farmer!
Harvest time has begun on Coyote Family Farm! Receive a box of lovingly, naturally-grown produce this week and help support this new venture. On Thursday June 5 in Berkeley, and Friday June 6 at the farm, we are offering an introductory box of farm-fresh produce, picked that morning, for only $10! Likely box contents are: Red Russian Kale, Rainbow Chard, a mix of red and green lettuces, baby beets and/or radishes and/or Tokyo turnips, and plenty of herbs.
Here's how it works:
Quantities are limited, so please reserve as soon as you can. If possible, we will bring a few extra boxes and some other good stuff if you decide to drop by at the last minute!
Thank you, and see you soon!
