End of Season

The cherry tomatoes are really gone now. The last frosts finally got them.

But the cold-tolerant plants like these beets are still flourishing. It
won't be long now, though, until everybody unanimously decide to finish up the growing season all together to store up energy for the next one.

Almost end of season, but not yet!

We will be at the farmers' markets this week, and next week. The farm is slowly coming to the end of the growing season.

With such a dry summer behind us, we are hoping that our irrigation system will be installed for next year!

Thank you so much for all your continued support! Come visit us at the stand or the markets these next two weeks as we still have delicious greens and lettuces available. See you there!

Fall Festival and Fundraiser

Mother nature bestowed us with lovely weather for our festivities this afternoon! After the rain and thunder and wind storm last night, we were left with crisp, clean air on the farm.

In the early afternoon, families, old friends, new friends, and generous customers started to arrive at the farm.

The children were treated to several hay rides, face painting, pumpkin hunt, and yummy treats. Three bands played fun music in the flower garden. Raffle prizes were displayed for those who may have been lucky.

Pumpkins, gourds, and greens adorned the farm stand, wagons and carts. We all enjoyed the company, the bounty, the beauty of the season. Thank you everyone for coming to the event! We hope you had a wonderful time! We appreciate your generosity, and your continued support for our small, organic farm!

More photos from the afternoon can be seen here.

Garlic Planting

Fall is in the air. Our garlic seeds are in the soil. Before we know it, they will be shooting up, creating beautiful garlic scapes next spring. But for now, they will have a long winter's nap in our healthy, organic soil.

There is an apiary on Blue Heron Organic Farm, home to the thousands of bees that feed on our flowers. The resulting honey is rich, dark, and delicious! You can come by to pick some up for your next cup of tea (on a cool autumn day).

If you would like to be transported to the Southwest for a moment, please come visit our farm stand soon! You will find chili ristras hanging like curtains, making this October day very festive.

And yes, we still have raspberries, winter squashes, beautiful collards, kale, and rainbow swiss chard. This warm weather makes it feel like summer is here to stay, doesn't it?

Alice Waters at a farmers' market

The New York Times today has a great video of Alice Waters shopping at the Union Square Farmers' Market in New York City. She has been and still is the inspiration for the current thinking about food and how to pick and cook fresh produce.

We highly recommend that you watch this video! You might just be inspired enough to come visit our farm stand tomorrow at the Lexington Farmers' Market.
