Farm Update



Here's a quick update on the status of the garden, not much good news I'm afraid.

Apparently we are going to have a rainy fall, August was hot but cloudy. So far we have managed to get a delivery to everybody, on an erratic schedule; it's impossible to know what will be ready on any given week, as so much has been damaged.

Many of the plants we tried to save succumbed anyway; we have pretty much abandoned our big garden to focus efforts on the smaller one. We will continue to harvest as stuff comes available from the big garden, but further salvage work in there is pointless.

Over the last 5 weeks or so we have pretty much filled up the small garden with new plantings; if we have a decent fall, we can expect some harvests from there soon.

We will continue to bring you as much as we can as often as we can; naturally all our garden produce is going to our CSA customers, we haven't sold anything at the Merrickville Market since this happened.

Speaking of the Market, it is now located on Main St west, next to the Main St Restaurant. The Market is operating on Wednesdays from 3pm to 7pm, and on Saturday from 9am to 1pm. It will probably continue until the end of September.

Last Batch of Chickens for This Year

I've got about a dozen or so birds left from the latest batch of birds; this is usually the last I have for sale. I will be harvesting another batch mid-October, but I keep most of those to feed us.

Drop me a line if you want some. The birds are between 4 and 6 lbs, free range organic (naturally) and are inspected and quick frozen at a local provincially-approved abattoir. Price per pound is $4.00

regards,

Scott
