Almost maxed out the rain gauge between Friday and Sunday...and it was still (again) raining when I emptied it. My fall cover-cropping game might not be up to my usual standards. #wetfall #noplant19 #flashflooding #fallrainsWeirdest radar I’ve seen in a while. What’s it about? #weather #meteorologistneeded #radar @nws @weatherundergroundI decided not to drive into the city to join a climate strike action today. So instead of some snappy signs, here is a picture of my work from the other day: mowing down a field that never got planted this year because of the coldest, wettest spring in a long time. The climate scientists I have heard speak say that the best models show that this kind of weather pattern will become more common in the Midwest as climate change progresses: colder, wetter winters and springs; hotter, dryer summers and falls. Farmers always complain about the weather, but this is a new reality. The already risky business of farming is becoming even less predictable. #climatestrike #farming #illinoisfarm #climatechange #noplant19 #climatechangeisrealSwipe through to see the different stages of sunflower development that we currently see in our field. Most of them look like the last photo. I think that’s most interesting to me is how small the flowers seem, compared to how in Normas they are once the flowers are all pollinated and the seeds begin to form. #organic #organicfarming #sunflowers #oilseeds #flowersforfood #bigscienceexperiment@earthfirstfarms organic tomatoes waiting to be processed. 2 canners isn’t enough for 100 lbs of tomatoes! 🍅 The Internet told us to expect ~3 gallons less than we ended up with. These sauce tomatoes are dense (and nutrient-dense!). #organic #organictomatoes #canning #diy #tomatoes
Our annual Farm Tour & Tea is cancelled for 2019 due to an extremely wet planting season (we expect that some things might not be planted by the last week in June). We hope to host a potluck party on the farm later in the season instead. As soon as we have set a date, we’ll let you know here and via social media.
