Farm Stories: Northwest Summer Crop Report

  With summer now over, I can say with certainty that it was a really hot year and that the heat had an effect on crops for better or for worse. Farms with plenty of irrigation fared quite well. Native species with plentiful wild populations might be in for several weeks of zero rainfall, but most are adapted to drought conditions. Crops like Basil and Cilantro that bolt into flowering stage as soon as the temperatures reach the high 90s didn’t put on much growth, but the quality looks and smells great. Others such as Mint and Oregano are faster growing and carry more potent essential oil from that prolonged summer heat. Workers start out to the fields at the crack of dawn, kick off their boots for a siesta in the afternoon […]

The Sunday Steep!

    A few weeks ago, I spent some time at my mother's home in the foothills of the coast range in Southern Oregon. While the hillside has changed much since I was growing up, I still love to visit – especially when the seasons change. I enjoy bearing witness to those natural patterns as the years pass. We spent the weekend harvesting hundreds of apples, prunes, and plums from the many trees in the orchard she and my late father planted back in the seventies. I also managed to do a little "wildharvesting" and came home with enough ripe elderberries to make about a half-gallon of fresh elderberry cordial! One of the most bittersweet parts of visiting "home" is to notice how the trees change. My huge […]
