Farm Update, October 8, 2016

This week on a sunny and mild day we met at length out on the farm and discussed how we would lay out our beds for the next season.  For me this was a highly anticipated meeting to start off on the good foot for next year by reviewing the current season.  This was also […]

Farm Update, October 1, 2016

This week really feels like the beginning of autumn.  Driving by Larriland Farms on the way to work I see trees loaded with apples and parking lots filled with pickers.  The skies are frequented with “V” formations and honking of geese, and the corn is ready to cut. There is definitely a change in the […]

Farm Update, September 17, 2016

Another week at the farm, and although things are beginning to slow down I am realizing that I am slowing down at a faster rate and therefore it feels like things are speeding up.  Funny how that works. This weekend has been a landmark one for the entire season.  On a peaceful Sunday afternoon in […]

Farm Update, September 8, 2016

Everything at the farm keeps on trucking along.  Right now it’s a nice balance of daily picking, cleaning up the spent beds, as well as planting and seeding.  The first half of this week was sunny and mild and the perfect weather for getting lost in the rows of cherry tomatoes which are the best […]

Farm Update, August 27, 2016

After being away on a family road trip last week to pick up our daughter from sleep-away camp in Maine, I returned to a pile of payback.  Last week was filled with gorgeous Maine weather and panoramic views of mountains, oceans, islands, and lakes, swooping bald eagles.  A ghostly full moon rising being towed up […]

Farm Update, August 14, 2016

This week at the farm we are being outpaced by eggplant, peppers, and cherry tomatoes.    These are the plants in full production and they are ripening as fast on the vine as we can pick.  Our peppers are turning bright yellow, red, and orange, all the colors of the sunset.  We are picking loads of […]

Farm Update, August 6, 2016

Finally this week we caught a break.  A break in the weather with cooler midday temps and less humidity.  A break from extinguishing “fires” such as malfunctioning well pumps and invasions of cucumber beetles.  We recruited some reinforcements to help keep up with the picking and even got to play catch up with the weeds […]

Farm Update, July 30, 2016

This week at the farm was somewhat bittersweet.  In the beginning we were handed a beatdown not just by the excessive heat and humidity but with heavy insect pressure as well.  On the western front we had cucumber beetles and aphids to contend with on our vine crops, and don’t even get me started about […]

Farm Update, July 22, 2016

Standing at one of the highest points of the farm overlooking all the other vegetable beds I follow Godofredo’s direction and pull out my leatherman’s blade to slice a section of 2” hose.  Jeff is at the other end of the farm down by the well, awaiting our signal to turn on the water.  There […]

Farm Update, July 18, 2016

This week got hot and humid.  I noticed a thin layer of mist blanketing the fields on my way to work in the morning with a mugginess in the air and a red sun on the rise.  I can hear Eddie Murphy’s voice and the phrase “Africa Hot” for some reason as my internal dialog […]
