Another great shot of our Warehouse chilli plant 🌶️✨🔥 ⁣

We often forget to harvest this pot so the chillis dry out and drop and we have more chillis the next bloom cycle! ⁣

Do you guys ever have too many plants but don’t want to give them up?⁣

🇫🇷nous avons remarqué une grue qui est passé notre champ. C’était la première cet hiver que nous avons vu à la ferme et depuis lors nous avons vu des autres plusieurs fois. Nous souhaitons que nous en aurions plus mais peut-être c’est presque quand elles migrent encore. 🇬🇧we noticed last week that a crane was stopping by in our field. This one was the first one we saw in our farm this winter and since then we’ve had some of them on several separate occasions. We wish we’d see more of them but it’s nearly time they migrated. 🇯🇵先週ウチの敷地内に鶴がやって来ているのを発見。ウチにとっては今年初めての鶴で、その後も数回ウチにやって来ています。もっとやって来れば良いのにとも思いますが、そろそろ他の地域に渡っていく時期かも知れません。

🤔The Center for Food Safety reports:
.
.
“A groundbreaking new study published in the journal Environmental Research found that switching to an organic diet for just one week significantly reduced the levels of synthetic pesticides found in all human participants. On average, the pesticides detected dropped by 60.5 percent after six days of eating an all-organic diet. 😮 .
Another 2018 study published in The Journal of the American Medical Association found that the most frequent consumers of organic food had 25 percent fewer cancers overall than those who never ate organic food. 👍
.
We know that pesticide residues are detected four times more often in conventional food than organic food. 😡And we know that eating organic food lowers the risk of impairment in the physical and mental development of children.”
.
.

40% of American children eat school lunches. 🙏🏼🙏🏼Please 🙏🏼🙏🏼let your local congressional representatives know that it is important to make the National School Lunch Program organic. All people should have the right to eat pesticide-free food, especially vulnerable children, whose bodies and brains are still developing.
.
.
Just sayin’...

Sunday potato harvest! 🥔
Excavating potatoes up from the earth is like digging for buried treasure. It brings out the kid in everyone. Some people use a digging fork to lift their potatoes. I like to use my hands. If growing in a container, however, you just dump everything out of the pot. .

Emiko cabbage sprouting
I’m not a fan of cats and I think Deets can feel that based on the look he’s giving me. But I’m a huge fan of Selah so she can have whatever animal she wants. Except for that teacup pig she wants to keep in her room to dress up.
Spring is just around the corner, hopefully🤞. looking back at the colors and dishes, gets me all warm and cozy inside!!

Giving myself some 💚 tonight with this Miso Power Bowl from @ohsheglows cookbook. The part I loved the most about this recipe is the call for 1/2 cup of sprouts on top. Well, I don’t have sprouts, but I do have a buttload of microgreens🙌🏼👩🏻‍🌾 ( Told you all that you can put your micros on EVERYTHING🌱🌱🌱)
.

At the end of 2018 my body was screaming for me to pay attention to what I was fueling it with. Most of the time I eat pretty darn good, but let’s be real- we are all humans and eat and drink allllll the things sometimes, and need a quick wake up call to get ourselves back on track. This cookbook has been a flipping life saver with the most flavorful, wholesome, powerful healing and easy ingredients, and my body is now screaming THANK YOU!!!! This cookbook may be vegan but I promise it will satisfy all diets out there. Hands down my most favorite cookbook of all times thus far (and I love cookbooks)!
.

And 46 days alcohol free, Happy Valentine’s Day to meeeeeee💚💚💚

“There’s something miraculous that happens in a garden. It’s a place where, if you can’t say ‘I love you’ out loud, you can say it in seeds. And the earth will reciprocate, in beans.” -Robin Wall Kimmerer

In 2009, my first summer farming, late blight wiped out tomatoes across the Northeast, and my 2 1/2 year relationship fell apart. Loss and growth intertwined that summer, and I think if I hadn't been heartbroken, I wouldn't have fallen so in love with farming.

But the land held me that summer, and every time I moved goats, pigs, and chickens to fresh pasture, every time I planted a new crop and harvested a mature one, I learned there was a way to move forward and keep growing myself.

At the root of it, farming is love. If you find you're in a place where you can't say I love you out loud today, plant some seeds. The earth will reciprocate, and what grows may change your life.

“Why do farmers farm, given their economic adversities on top of the many frustrations and difficulties normal to farming? And always the answer is: ‘Love. They must do it for love.’ “ ~ Wendell Berry

This simple quote is how I decided on the name Fierce Love Farm back in 2012 when I started farming, long before we started this business and a few months before Jon and I found each other. We are very privileged to get to do what we love, on this beautiful island, with each other. Wishing all the farmers and eaters out there a day full of love 💚

🇫🇷nous avons testé la germination des semences de tomate que nous avons pris l’année dernière. À la première fois, elles n’ont pas germé du tout alors que nous avons mis la plaque sur le rebord de fenêtre qui était ensoleillé. C’était très inquiétant mais peut-être il ne faisait pas assez chaud. Michael il a pensé qu’on aurait mis la plaque dans un sac plastique pour créer un univers plus chaud. À la deuxième fois toutes les semaines ont germé. Quelques semaines ont besoin de la lumière pour germer mais des semaines de tomate et des autres fruits de la même famille, comme des aubergines et des poivrons, germent avec la chaleur même si il fait assez sombre. Nous avons appris une bonne leçon pour cette saison. 🇬🇧we have done some germination tests of tomato seeds we collected last year. At the first attempt, even though we put the tray on a sunny window sill, it didn’t sprout at all and it made us very worried. However, perhaps it was not warm enough. Michael thought we could put the tray in a plastic bag to create a much warmer condition, and all the seeds successfully germinated at the second attempt. Some seeds need lights to germinate, but tomato seeds, as well as aubergine and peppers in the same family, germinate in warmth, instead, if it is quite dark. A big lesson learnt for this growing season. 🇯🇵昨年自家採種したトマトの発芽テストをしましたが、初回は全く発芽せずとても心配に。でも多分気温が低すぎたのでしょう、マイケルがトレーをビニール袋で覆ってみてはと思いやってみたところ、2回目で発芽100%。種の中には発芽に光が必要なものがありますが、トマトやナス、ピーマンなどはかなり暗くても温度が高くなれば発芽します。今シーズンに向けて貴重な事を学びました。

No filter needed on this awesome new recipe we found. Braised red cabbage with apples is our new way we make the overflowing amount of cabbage we have on the farm.
Simply take cabbage, apples, balsamic vinegar and spices or choice and sauté them up! We used cinnamon and ginger for an extra kick! So yummy and so off the beaten path. It feels good to liven up our cooking!

Our Director Karen Clark basking in what was soon to become our herb garden last summer. On March 2 Nancy Graden will be teaching an herbal farming course in which She will track the whole process through from seeding in the greenhouse, transplanting out, tending to, harvesting and storing. The class will include specifics of planting different herbs, need for stratification and scarification, days to germinate, when/how to up-pot, days to transplant, sun/soil preferences, companions planting tips, soil building, harvesting, storing, seed saving, and medicinal benefits and uses.

Missing warmer weather on days like this. ☃️ Thanks to @goodheartfarmstead for sharing this with us! 😀⠀

"When the spinach and lettuce field reflects the changing foliage beyond 🌱🍁🌱 I love when spinach comes back on the menu—this hot dry summer was far from ideal for spinach growing, but these cool days are perfect. Edge is harvesting Acadia F1 spinach, a new favorite in our field for it's uniform baby leaf size, deep green color, and yield.⠀

The only downside is that every time I say Acadia, I want to go to the ocean...growers on coastal Maine, you'll be right at home with this spinach 😉"⠀

It's not my prize cutting but it's still quite the looker. Tinto de Verano #3 (JTR x Pinot Noir) produces some dank. This phenotype is skunky and gets your attention very quickly upon the first toke. This one's for the weed nerds! 💚💚 Lettuce toke 🍀

This year shall be called the “Year of Spinach”
For the first year ever we have a bumper crop of spinach. It’s huge juicy and healthy! If we had to guess here’s the factors that really increased yield. -Early planting. We planted ours in October and baby them with shade cloth until the weather cools.
-Great Soil. After 3 years of farming here, our soil has finally become a light and fluffy mix of organic matter -Moisture. This year has been a great rain year for us. - Continual harvest. Even when the row of spinach was barely chugging along, we pinched off leaves to encourage new growth.
What’s your secret to good spinach? This spinach, by the way, is our favorite variety Bloomsdale Spinach.

I might be leaving ya'll for a while and just want to say that I love my Weed Nerds, I love working with this amazing plant and will miss ya'll very much! Losing everything I've worked so hard for is such a huge blow to me and not having anyone here for me really puts me in a fucked up place. It feels like I've sacrificed everything I have to be here for nothing. . I've done so much and for what? To chase a dream. . Every direction I look to step in looks like a fuckin disaster. Not so easy to keep pushing when it's just you every damn day. Stop the world and let me off already. . Fuckin done

We’re so excited that Tanya will be representing the #JewishFarmerNetwork at the 37th annual @nofavermont winter conference! “I farm because I love to be outside, work with plants and provide healthy food to my family and community. Raising vegetables is a puzzle and the work is always changing, engaging, and challenging. We focus on raising beautiful, varied and colorful produce that we can sell locally at markets and to schools and restaurants. We also raise flowers to attract pollinators and maintain wild areas on our farm to increase biodiversity” #jewishfarmer #whywegrow #biodiversity #peopleoftheland #feedingcommunity #jewswhofarm #jewishfarmers #colorfulproduce
