Fall update from Cedar Isle Farm‏

October 22nd, 2014 by Cedar Isle Farm

Happy October!

As the greyness becomes dominant in weather forecast, Cedar Isle Farm is in a hurry getting winter grain in the ground. The seeds are sown with our optimism for next season and encouragement of your support for us! Let’s keep our fingers crossed for a productive year ahead.

Next year’s rye crop has emerged, ready for winter, shielded on the north by the windbreak.

After many delays, two acres of a special field of winter wheat was seeded October 7th — the last window of opportunity for the season. We’re hoping favourable weather will permit it to grow several leaves before winter sets in and the plants go dormant.

Agassiz CSA member Meeghen Eaton hand-sows some experimental plots of winter wheat.
