Farm Update

 The new Asparagus bed
 These are the Asparagus Crowns, basically asparagus roots that you plant (weird looking)
One of the new laying chickens seemed to like one of the peach trees!

We will be closed, with the exception of self serve eggs, until more of the Fall crops come in. Feel free to call ahead to see if eggs are available 410-215-6776. Remember there is a limit of two dozen per customer.

Fresh chicken

This weekend will be our final fresh chicken weekend until next spring. The chicken will be available from Thursday at 3 (a little later than normal) until Sunday evening, when what's left goes in the freezer.

We still have tomatoes, although I wouldn't wait to much longer to get them, as they are fading fast in the field. Our fall crops are coming along well. We should have some lettuces soon and sweet potatoes in two weeks.
We will be open our normal hours this week 9a until dark and then beginning next week we will only be open Friday, Saturday and Sunday 9a until dark. If you need something during the week please don't be afraid to call us at 410-215-6776.

We have made some decisions about our egg production, which has been a problem all summer, that we will discuss in another posting

We have built a new large bed for more asparagus that will be planted this fall. We have ordered 500 strawberry plants we will plant this fall, 40 new blueberry bushes to replace those that have petered out in the blueberry field and have 40 pounds of garlic that we will be separating the cloves to plant this October. The forty pounds should yield about 2000 bulbs of garlic next June!

One other thing....can any of you that juice, tell me what juicer would juice grapes with seeds. We just bought a Breville juicer to primarily juice our grapes and find out it's not recommended to juice grapes with seeds and many of ours have seeds. Any help would be appreciated.

As always, we thank you for choosing us as your farmer.

Hope you all had a nice holiday weekend!
