We practice sustainability at the farm. Crop rotation, use of drip irrigation and re-using the flower water each week are some of the ways we are being kind to the earth.
As of March 11th we are sold out for our coming season of harvest boxes. If you are interested in joining us for 18 weeks of our beautiful flower share, please email Lorrie at We have 3 flower shares for the season available.

Our harvest boxes are on Tuesdays with pickup between 4:00 - 6:00 pm at the Farm. 8005 Portland Rd. N.E. Salem, Oregon.

Week 15

A cart full from the field. Zucchini, canteloupe of all sizes, yellow straight neck squash.

One GIANT canteloupe in with
regular ones and little ones.

Yellow pear tomatoes and
"Mexico Midget" cherry tomatoes.

More red cherry along with "Sun Sugar"
orange cherry tomatoes. So very sweet.

"Diva" slicing cucumbers are
smoother than the others.

Lemon cucumbers. The ones to the right are much more yellow and I have heard, not as tastey.

Florencio tries out our first yellow watermelon of the season. "Petite Yellow".

Yumminess up close.

"All Blue" potatoes with a little dirt, too.

Asian pears.

Part of Anna's lunch today. Sliced cucumbers and onions in vinegar, water, salt and pepper. Like a fresh pickle, crunchy. This is about the only way I like cucumbers. Of course fully pickled ones are delicious, too.

Wonderful fresh black bean salsa. All things fresh!

Finishing off lunch with carmel drizzled, gooey,
sweet brownies.

Good times with produce all around.

That's where all the missing tomatoes keep going!

Anna, Lisa and the kiddos cutting flowers by Mom's bench among the nasturtiums.

The kiddos help out. Sometimes they carry boxes, sometimes they are IN the boxes!

Fresh basil. Can you almost smell it?

Basil we have been cutting every week this summer. It has been harvested today. It is in the greenhouse where it is very warm all the time.

New basil plants starting to grow in the next
empty bed in the greenhouse.

Whether picking flowers, or playing
"king of the hill" we all enjoy ourselves.

"Here Mom, another bunch from Oma".
Love the hat.
