We have two new high tunnels here at the farm! The past weeks have been busy ones getting them ready, but we are excited about all the growing opportunity they provide.
This is one of the high tunnels getting covered in plastic. We tried to pick a day that wasn't too windy we may have missed, the plastic got a little hard to hold down.
Elisa is transporting the transplants! The new high tunnel will house onions that we started in our smaller hoop house.
Here is the high tunnel all set up and getting planted in onions.
Welcome to the new year! We have been busy on the farm constructing high-tunnels, preparing for a cooler revamp, going to agricultural conferences, and reading seed magazines. Is it spring already? I am beginning to get that seed planting itch.
It is about time for us to make our CSA delivery plans for the season. Thank you to all of our members who supported us last summer! It turned out to be a pretty good year granted the conditions, but we sure are hoping for more tomatoes and fewer days over 110 this season!
We are planning to change our Bristow delivery day to Thursday evenings this year. We hope this will be more convenient for everyone. We would also like to add one or two more Wednesday business delivery locations in Tulsa this season. If you and your co-workers are intersted in delivery to your place of business, please contact me soon.
More pictures and updates from the January happenings come soon!
If you are anything like our family, you like to eat. Good food. We grow vegetables, we eat vegetables, and we want to share our love of eating fresh vegetables with you and your family.
Check out our Recipe page on the website. Some are tried and true, others have yet to be explored.
Keep up the healthful living! Keep eating green things!
The warm weather has brought the asparagus out early. We picked about 45 pounds today. It will keep picking up for several more weeks, but since it started early, it will also end a bit early. Get it while you can!
We pick daily. Call (918) 639-0244 for availability.
Other news around the farm: we transplanted brocolli, head lettuce, and pac choi out to the garden on Friday. It is looking good. Also, the green onions, spinach, beets, and greens, carrots, and radishes are all sprouting.
Will post pictures soon.
Today was my first day back in Oklahoma after 5 months in South Sudan. I hear that I missed a cold and snowy winter! It was feeling pretty nice today though, so I got to making soil blocks and planting seeds. Tomatoes, broccoli, cabbage, lettuce, and celery. Over 2000 in all (so far). Its good to be back.
Our summer growing season is over and the garden is tucked in under a nice cover-crop of beans and peas. I will be spending the winter doing volunteer work in Sudan. I fly out on Tuesday and plan to be back in February for seed planting! I will try to post regular notes from Africa while I am gone on my personal blog: www.eatplants.blogspot.com.
We picked 30 bushels of corn and 10 crates of tomatoes today. Summer is here! This is our busy season, picking veggies, baling hay, and getting ready to start wheat harvest.
Sweet corn is 20.00/bushel at the farm. Big fresh picked ears. It tastes good and goes quick. Call ahead for availability. (918) 639-0244.
Tuesday is our big picking/washing day. Wednesday is our big CSA and market day. Here are a few pictures.
I have been busy repotting tomatoes for the last day or two. They are really growing. And it looks like we have some lettuce and spinach ready to move to the field. I plan to start setting them out tomorrow morning.
Here are a few pictures from the greenhouse today along with one of my sisters planting onions the other week.
