Happy Tuesday! You know what that means? Its day one of two every week that we share about the happenings on our farm through our Youtube channel!
We missed last Thursday's video due to some illness on the farm and catching up from that but we are back at it. With the really cold weather coming our way its time to start gathering everything out of the garden and finish getting our fall garden planted.
You will never guess what we found in the zucchini plant.... and no it wasn't zucchini, check it out in today's video!
The weather here in Oregon did a flip flop... a couple of times I think. One day its hot outside in the mid 80's and the next it is raining and cloudy. September and October are harvest season here down on the farm. All those months of planning, planting have come down to this.... harvesting.
We have enjoyed the grapes hanging off our vine on our front porch for some time now and while it is sad to cut them down and no longer have them there we get to enjoy their sweetness. Some fresh, some dehydrated and maybe even some in tea for our monthly tea subscribers.
We also planted some experimental quinoa this year. There is a farm locally that specializes in it so we thought we would give it a try. Quinoa is an ancient grain and is a very healthy protein packed food. It looks much like bird seed after harvested! We figure if we didn't eat it ourselves we would either save it for seed and/or use it to supplement the chicken feed.
Check out our harvest here on Youtube and thanks for visiting us down on the farm!
