Amid rows of tomatoes and cukes ripe for the picking, the farm holds an ice cream social and a hands-on demo making strawberry-basil ice cream (with some freshly harvested honey, too!).
Carrots and moreUncategorized
New bike racks to welcome visitors, cukes and peppers blossoming, and fat carrots are ready for the picking at the farm. The perfect excuse to make roasted carrot and red lentil ragout.
Farm friends pitch in to raise funds for Growing Chefs and the Open Space Institute at Seedstock at Eagle Street Rooftop Farm. Cold beers, cool rooftop breezes, good food and great music for a Saturday night.

The farm opens for one last market before Thanksgiving. With the season over, the chickens have gone to winter homes. But the kale is still growing, and there are still carrots and peppers to be had. Time for one last market and a pause to give thanks for a productive year.
Halloween at the farmUncategorized
The last Sunday of the month, and the last open farm of the season save for right before Thanksgiving. The gang dress as the women of Jules Breton’s The Recall of the Gleaners for photographer Felicia Wong, then get down to work harvesting late-season veggies.
As the farming season winds down, late-season crops like carrots, peppers and herbs are harvested and beds prepped for winter. In the afternoon, the folks from Rockaway Taco drop by for food and fun.

Fall at the farmUncategorized
The arrival of fall brings cool, windy skies. Plants get pulled as thatch and rasdish seeds are sown for winter groundcover. The bunnies enjoy a rare day al fresco, and Annie leads a workshop on planting winter cover.
