It looks like the weather pattern is starting to shift and that will provide The Farm with a short window to begin planting our fall crops. It won't be news to many, but this has definitely been some of the most difficult weather patterns in the past 80 years. As a result we are going to go as big for the fall planting as we can in the hope of making up a lot of lost ground this season.
However, we won't be able to do this without you.
Over the next three weeks, we are asking everyone that has time to come and spend a Friday evening and/or a Saturday morning with us to help planting these fall crops. It will be critical to get as many plants into the ground (we have over a 1,000 ready) as possible to ensure we have some good growth before the first frost.
