A dinner prep walk

Hazy/smoky skies over a yellow oat cover crop field … definitely late summer now …

Our schedules this week have meant less family time than we usually expect, so tonight before making dinner we all went out to the fields together to pick vegetables to cook. I took pictures along the way, capturing the distinctive look and feel of the August garden, so that you could join us in exploring the late summer crops …

Later planted pumpkin plants working to catch up! (I wouldn’t even be able to walk in the earlier planted squash planting!)

Fennel bulbs, gone to seed, full of buzzing insects of all kinds

The sweet corn is tall enough to hide in!

Fall broccoli, getting ready to start heading up

Freshly weeded carrots, destined for late fall shares



Pear trees take the longest of all our fruit to mature. We’ve been waiting and waiting for them to produce fruit since planting these trees in early 2009. This year, we have a few absolutely gorgeous pears. Hopefully more in future years! (Rusty’s hand, for comparison)

We had to pick a couple of figs before we left the orchard — so sweet!

Bag full of dinner food, hand full of kale … time to head back home to cook (and publish the newsletter!).

Thanks for joining us on our evening walk! Enjoy this week’s vegetables!

Your farmers, Katie & Casey Kulla

Final CSA payment due next week! (Or soon after)

Hey all — how fast is this summer going? Apparently fast enough that next week is our final scheduled payment for the CSA season! Normally I like to email statements earlier than I have, so if you need another week to get us a check, we totally understand. Watch your email for a statement coming ASAP! Thanks!
