Lettuce, garlic, spinach, oh my!

1 Share
Lettuce for days
News from the fields:
Wow, I can't believe June is almost upon us. I'm sitting in my office watching the sweet spring rain saturate our fields. This week we transplanted tomatoes, lettuce, spinach, scallions, and our first generation of cucumbers. We also direct seeded carrots, radishes, arugula, cilantro, and the week isn't over yet. We are plowing in the last sections of cover crop on the farm to prepare our fields for summer and fall crops.

Busy town! This week we had work done
on the well and put in some new fencing
When we aren't out in the fields we have been preparing the farm for Spring Fest. Please join us on Memorial Day from 10-3. There are a ton of vendors, activities (including farm tours!), and a great band. Swing by the farm stand and check out the renovations! The farm stand will be open and fully stocked.

CSA details:
Cultivating beets
I have received a few inquiries recently asking when the CSA will start and how the half share rotation will work. If you have a half share and your last name begins with a letter A through L you will pick up on odd share weeks (1,3,5,7,9,11,13,15,17,18,19). If your last name starts with a letter M through Z you will pick up on even weeks (2,4,6,8,10,12,14,16,18,20).

Week 1 or the CSA is scheduled to start Tuesday June 13th!

The farm crew is really excited for the start of the farm season. The farm just isn't the same without you.

Your farmer,

Lush cover crop building our soils

Ok, this is super creepy. Zach just made a comment about my actual childhood, and, no, I am not joking.

Jimmy Fallon uses the Force to finally kill the All Star meme

1 Share

I regret to inform you that Smash Mouth’s song “All Star” has died — again. This time, the pop single was murdered in cold, corporate blood by Jimmy Fallon, NBC, and Disney (by way of Star Wars). Above, you can see officially released footage of the brutal act.

WARNING: it is graphic.

“All Star” lived a blessed and full second life as an internet meme thanks to reincarnations like Windows XP “All Star,” "All Star" by Smash Mouth but every word is someBODY, “All Star” sung backwards, “All Star” by Smash Mouth but every other word is "bee" from Bee Movie and the instrumental is Seinfeld, “All Star” but the words are ordered by Scrabble score, “Photograph” by Nickelback but every word is someBODY, “All Star” but every word is in...

Babylon 5 now available to stream for free in the US

1 Comment and 2 Shares

Babylon 5, even during its original run, was never particularly easy to watch when it first aired. The changing TV landscape of the time, as well as the failure of B5's original network PTEN and subsequent re-emergence on the TNT network, meant that timeslots and airdates shifted several times during the show's original five-year run.

Show creator Joe Michael Sraczynski's "B5 books" site is reporting that Go90.com now has the entire show available to stream for free for the first time, along with several other recent series.

I've always believed that B5 represented one of the better Sci-Fi "space opera" TV shows in history, and one that many people were never able to watch during its run on television. The story and effects hold up extremely well for a show that recently celebrated its 20th anniversary. Now's your chance to see it in its entirety, for free, on your own terms.

Unfortunately, the site is US-only.

One of my favorites. Though the arc involving a change in leadership, the usage of aliens as enemy scapegoats, and creeping fascism sounds much less hypthetical than is used to be.
