Whipstone Farm: What a Week! Featured

Seeds, dahlia digging/dividing planting bulbs.

Big Idea

  • The last seeds are in the ground for 2020
  • We are planting bulbs
  • Taking down trellises
  • Thanksgiving veggie boxes are being offered
  •

Thanksgiving boxes on sale this week

It's been a week!  Lots of highs and lows and big feelings.  Also lots of work - ok, nothing new there.  We have planted the last seeds in the ground for 2020 and are continuing on with dahlia digging/dividing, planting bulbs, and lots and lots of field clean up.  We are taking down trellises, pulling t-posts and hoops, rolling up row cover and mulch and taking care of all the neglected tasks that pile up during the busy season. It feels good to get things done.  And we need to get our blood pumping on these cold mornings.  Plenty of photos below to illustrate it all. 

We will be offering Thanksgiving veggie boxes.  Kind if like an extra generous CSA box with lots of goodies for a great family dinner.  They will go on sale on our website this coming week (I will send an additional email when they are live) for pick-up on Tuesday Nov. 24th.  Questions? Feel free to shoot me an email. 

With love from your farmers,
Shanti & the Whipstone Crew

Planting the last seeds of 2020. Carrots, beets, spinach, mâche, mesclun mix...

Lots of dahlia digging glam shots (I mean, we do spend an awful lot of our time
doing this throughout November). dig, wash, divide, pack up, load into the cooler.
oh, and label them, the most important part, label them at least 3 times each.

Spinach is back for the winter and oh so sweet - thank you frosty nights.

Pretty much the last of the fresh peppers making a beautiful display at last weekend’s market. 

It's time to smoke and dry all the peppers we rescued pre-deep freeze.  Future hot sauce going on right here. 

the most delicious of the squash imho

we soaked, pre-sprouted and planted into trays, 32 varieties of sweet peas this week.
they will grow on for 6 weeks or more in a nice cool greenhouse before getting planted
out into an even colder high tunnel. I love that this delicate flower
is such a bad ass when it comes to cold tolerance. 

flowers for Christmas, coming right up
