Provider Farm

From our fields, for your family

Rolling with the punches

The end of August is almost upon us. We’re still reveling in the glory of summer, while wrapping up some tasks and starting to feel ready for fall. Our plantings are all but behind us. The last fall roots, kale and broccoli has all gone in. We still have lettuce, spinach, arugula and tat soi to seeding to do weekly until the end of September but for the most part our plantings are complete.

Melon City

Sweaty and sweltering. Between the thunderstorms, rain showers, heat and humidity it feels like we spent the entirety of this past week soaked in one way or another. When we weren’t getting rained on harvesting squash, or hiding from lightning in the truck we were sweating through our t shirts on the back of the transplanter under a blistering sun.

When 70% is better then 100%

August is here and the farm is in full bloom. We have spent so many weeks waiting with breathless anticipation as the melons took shape. We watched the plants settle into the field, the vines grow, the flowers arrive and finally the tiniest baby melons from. They say a watched pot never boils. It’s a good thing they don’t say a watched melon never ripens because we watch the melons closely and carefully.

Rain!

All the prayers and rain dances must have worked, It finally rained! We could hardly believe it but Friday morning we woke up to gray skies and a nice gentle rain. There was no time to put our slippers on and snuggle up with a book to listen to the rain though. By lunch time it was all but a memory. The sun came back and the world heated right back up in a hurry.

Good Food For All: Provider Farm Donates Food

Here at Provider Farm, we believe everyone should have access to good, fresh food. That's why we've worked with some friends to get our excess produce to those who can use it. We currently donate hundreds of pounds of organic produce a week to the New London Food bank.  We are also excited to be working with the Norwich Public Schools to get fresh vegetables into kids meals!
