That's Not Rain Outside--Go Get Some Veggies

This Saturday I'm going to have a lot of amazing looking sunflower greens, which I haven't had in a while. I'll have tomatoes, too, but this could be the last week. The arugula and salad mix that I harvested today is fantastic. I also have my usual selection of greens and the best potatoes on earth. The herbs are slowing down, but I still have most of them, as well as turnips, watermelon radishes and a whole lot more. And, as always, I'll have eggs in the morning.

Here is a link to an update on Evolutionary Organics and their fundraiser:

Thank you immensely to everyone who has helped them out with donations and spreading the word about their situation. The garlic and lemon grass that I'm selling is from Evolutionary Organics.

Fundraiser for Evolutionary Organics

So...about that hurricane.... It's been a hectic time. Excessive rain is always a struggle on Muddy Farm because I have heavy soil, and we've had a lot of rain. I'm guessing I lost 70 percent of my crops from both the hurricane and the record rains that followed a week or so later. However, I've replanted some things, and I'm scrapping around as best I can.

I was not hit nearly as hard as my friend on the other side of the mountains--Evolutionary Organics Farm, in New Paltz. Below is a link to a fundraiser that Kira Kinney created for her farm. If anyone can help her out or spread the word to other interested people, I would be incredibly grateful. I can't tell you how many reasons why Muddy Farm wouldn't exist if it wasn't for Evolutionary Organics Farm. First of all, I learned how to grow vegetables from Kira. My greenhouse was also a gift from her. All in all, Kira is profoundly generous with her resources and farming expertise and as far as I'm concerned, a gift to her is a gift to all of the small organic farmers in the Hudson Valley who look to her and her farm as a pillar of the community.

Thank you.  Here's the link:
