Crop Farm Tour 

Here in Oregon, we grow over 250 different crops. So it’s no wonder that in our soil this year we have 10 different crops growing.  And while in the next three months they will all get harvested, currently everything is at all different stages. Some crops are just getting planted, some starting to flower, some are pollinating, and others are already ready to be harvested! 

So here is your photo tour of our farm and the 10 crops we are raising. 

First stop the grasses, both perennial and tall fescue are grown on our farm. 


Next, vegetables seeds. We are raising red cabbage seed…

Swiss chard seed…

And radish seed. 

Then finally, all the crops you can eat!!! Wheat…

Peas…

Hazelnuts…

Squash…

And Green beans…



So there you have it! And yes, to answer the question I most often get asked, we are really busy!  And most of the time, we are loving it!

Photo Friday, Swiss Chard

That moment when you go to take a selfie with your crop and you realize it’s no longer knee high!!! 

  
This Swiss Chard is wild and beautiful stuff!

   
Happy Friday everyone!

Crops are Waking Up

While spring is not technically here yet, you should take a look around and you could have fooled me.  Buds on the filbert (hazelnut) trees are coming to life.


  
The swiss chard is started to perk up after winter and head for the sky.  These plants will get up to 7 feet tall by the time we harvest!


And the inevitable battle with the mud has started.  Matt had a little trouble while out spraying, so he called in the big guns to come pull him out (yeah I mean me!).


 Happy farming and happy Friday!!
