Fall has finally arrived in Ohio; quite quickly, we transitioned from 90 degree weather last week, to the mid 50's this week! Our new fall crops are loving the change, but it does mean saying goodbye to the lingering hot weather crops that were still holding on in our fields. This week, we spent some time creating new, permanent raised beds in our tunnels, and prepping for fall transplant.
Next week, we will be working with Tunnel Vision Hoops to finish enclosing our new season extension herb house which will allow us to continue herb production into the cooler months this fall and winter.
We are excited to announce that we are hosting a unique volunteer opportunity on our farm this fall. On Saturday October 15 from 9:30am-1pm, we are inviting a limited number of volunteers to come out to the farm and participate in planting next year's garlic harvest. If you have ever wanted to learn more about organic farming or if you just enjoy getting your hands dirty gardening, we would love to have you out to the farm!
Join us at 9:30 am for coffee and brief discussion about the day's work. We will begin planting the garlic seed at 10am and work until 12pm. After we finish our work, stick around to enjoy a homemade harvest lunch featuring produce we have grown right here on the farm!
We are looking for 15 hard working volunteers to work in 5 person teams with a farm staff member. Bed prep will be done in advance, so we will be focusing specifically on selecting the seed and planting it. Please dress to be in the field. Gloves will be provided, as well as lunch. To sign up, please email Hannah at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call or text Hannah at (937)524-4719. We are looking forward to having you!
