Irrigation blues; the drought edition

Did you know it’s dry out there? I know we sound like a broken record, but the drought is weighing so heavily on us now, its hard to think about anything else to talk about. By our recollection, it’s as dry as it’s been since we started farming here in Salem.

Yabadabadoooo

It finally rained this week. Only for about 2 seconds and not nearly enough, but it did in fact rain. I have witnesses, in case you don’t believe me. To tell you the truth, it’s so dry out there, I barely believe it myself. We had some cloudy days, we heard a few rumbles of thunder, we saw some blobs on the radar.

Teamwork

A fair amount of sunshine, more than enough humidity and an ever diminishing chance of rain. I think I am starting to sense a theme for this season… After an incredibly sweaty and uncomfortable start to the week, the cloudy and cool temperatures on Thursday and Friday were more than welcome, even if the clouds didn’t end up bringing any rain.

What's a pirate's favorite vegetable?

Any time we look at the weather and hear ‘damaging wind, and ‘large hail’ we get a little bit antsy. When we hear ’chance of tornado’ we get down right uncomfortable. Our Friday afternoon was spent battening down some of our hatches while we anxiously looked towards the sky.

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!
