really dont know what to say about the beans. very bizarre. lots of flowers.....and barb says lots of little beans today....so maybe well have them next week. potatoes not washed because they rot faster when theyre wet. wash em up and cut out any green flesh. supposedly toxic but after the french GMO study  who cares? if you didnt see it and have the stomach for it check it out. russia has just suspended GM corn from the US because of it. we made a huge mess out of the farm in the pond/huglekultur project which you can check out next saturday during the croquet tournament. five bucks to enter - winner takes all. lamson - grilled goat  holbert - curry goat. kika - bread. modern monks - beer. kids welcome but must be 14 to enter croquet tourney.  dill is back tomorrow! i like grilled or pan seared peppers.

CSA 9/20/12

Green beans are taking their sweet time but the good news is the edamame is ready!  If you have never had it, I posted some tips on the right on how to prepare it. Ross is out at farm preparing for the largest hugelkultur event in history-or something like that.  If you have time, you should pop out to
the farm this weekend--if only to see him on a bulldozer.  Many thanks in advance to all of you that
are going out to chaperone.  For those of you that are busy this weekend, you will be able to see the finished (or, more likely, somewhat finished) product Oct 6th at our party.  See you tomorrow.  Bring boxes...I am running low.  Barb

in case of flash flooding during csa we are going to provide curbside delivery tomorrow. things shaping up nicely for squash starting next week. oppossums and skunks are now digging up in gardens looking for a nightcrawler or a grub. gardens only spot with any moisture at all - until tonight and tomorrow's severe thunderstorms.
two farm events upcoming. of course - the sticky wicket croquet tournament october 6 th. and a week from this saturday (the 22nd) we will be building the largest hugelkultur bed in nebraska - perhaps the midwest. looking for men or women to throw branches and logs into a long trench as i cover them while scraping out a new pond. lunch and treats provided. come be a part of history!!!

CSA 9-6

We would like to welcome our newest CSA client into the world.  Cooper Louise Steger.  We hope to meet her very soon and predict she will be the face our our baby food empire. More green beans, tomatoes and cucumbers today and hopefully okra. Chard has a few holes due to bugs chowing it but it tastes just fine.  See you soon.  Barb
