Tomato Time

Come and get 'em.  Tomatoes are finally here in earnest!  We are growing seven varieties of cherry tomatoes, sweet little packages that come in yellow, orange, pink, red, and rich brown.  And, of course, those gorgeous red slicing tomatoes that actually taste like tomatoes are meant to.  Delicious.

We are also still bringing carrots, red and golden beets, sunflower bouquets, eggplant, strawberries, garlic, and 'Walla-Walla' sweet onions.  Mild red onions and shallots are the latest additions.

Mid-July Bounty...

We attended our first Saturday Farmers' Market this past weekend and had fun seeing so many of our Belweather Farm friends again!  We currently have fresh garlic, gorgeous red and golden beets, and those coveted carrots.  Next week it looks like we will also have the first sunflower bouquets, eggplant and tomatoes.  This may also be the last market we have those beautiful garlic braids that Darrin has been making, so don't miss out.  Hope to see you there!

Time flies...

 2015.  Three years since my last post.

After a rather difficult fall and winter, we are forging ahead on the farm this season.  Darrin's father passed away this January, and his presence is dearly missed.  He genuinely loved watching our market garden grow every year, our children reveling in it, and selflessly gifted us with countless hours of assistance.

We also encountered record-breaking winds earlier this spring, resulting in one of our greenhouses being completely torn out of the ground and the other in need of complete plastic replacement.  We have made the necessary repairs and modifications and, rest assured, this year's garden is growing beautifully.  We are thankful for the resiliency of mind, body and spirit that often surfaces in the wake of adversity.

We plan on attending the Klamath Falls Farmers' Market for 10-12 weeks, likely beginning around mid-July.   Expect to see tomatoes, carrots, strawberries, beets, sweet onions, shallots, garlic, sweet peppers, eggplant, and cut flowers.  We look forward to growing for you and so appreciate your continued support of the Belweather Farm family!
