Hops Harvest for cascade and nugget
We had walls of hops this year its wild how well they grow.
We harvested them a week ago and sold them all.
We have great quality Cascade and Nugget with some Sterling and Heirloom hops from original Squamish Valley groves
Big Thanks to the HOOH Harvesters Of Organic Hops.
It is time to plant fall rye. The last years rye makes really good bread. Rye keeps the weeds down and looks good.
July 2015 picture of rye with hops growing on vines in the background. When its ready the rye starts to fall over at the top.
Then its time to pick it. The nice thing about this is its great for making bread. Also it makes a good bed for the ducks.
Fresh sourdough rye with a little help from our friends.
We had our table at the Squamish Farmers Market this week. Its Fall

They are swimming in the pond and generally making a mess not so good at weeding but they do like slugs.
They are silly and lots of fun. Now they are prizing winning. Its great because we all put a lot of effort into raising the them and its nice to place them.
