High tunnel progress... #farmlife #mainegrown #autumn
First design. Start of a 4" soil blocker...
#3dprinting #farmhack #soilblocks
3D Printing workshop for the farm at KVCC. The whole thing, including the 3D printers provided, was made possible by a local donor. Looking forward to designing/printing like a maniac this winter.
Back to that time of year when hand's freeze in the wash basins. Welcome, autumn!
There's a natural, high momentum to the farm season once May hits. One of the joys I find growing food are those moments that make me pause and take notice of a particular plant.
This here is an off-type of one of the cherry tomatoes I've been growing. Very different than the rest of its companions. A peach champagne color with a sweet, almost lemonade-like flavor. I'm all about it.
One of the few things I'll be saving seed from this season. Hopefully, to return next spring in greater abundance.
Striped beauties. #tomato #🍅
Next season's strawberry patch looking good. This is the time of year for coaxing back their runners into this bed and that bed. Watching them take shape and establish before autumn for the future harvest.

Little ducklings growin' up so fast!
Morning's work. Right side of the bed to be harvested next week. #saladdays #mainegrown
Love the rain.
Slinging produce and real fruit ice cream at China Community Days. 10am to 3pm #veggies #realfruiticecream #fieldtocone
Glorious tomatoes return.
Big ups to @getstickymaine for slinging delicious popsicles made from local fruit. Perfect snack for pulling weeds. You can get her popsicles made from our strawberries at Rockland's art walk this evening at @cmcanow #supportlocal
Summer rains wakening the medicinal. #reishi #mushrooms
Summer spinach harvest before the day's real warmth. Hydrocooling off the field heat to keep these greens crisp and fresh.
Precursor to the garlic harvest. Not too much longer. Scapes will be available at the roadside stand during today's u-pick. 3:30p-6:30p!
A day off from the u-pick to transplant onions and sweet potato slips.
