That's right friends! blue house greenhouse farm is having another super fun work party! and we'd love for you to come.

We need help! oh my goodness do we. We've got a boat load of projects. some of the tedious/meditative kind some of the interesting figure something out kind. we are sure that there is something for each of you! be it weeding, cleaning garlic, building a fence, spreading wood chips,prepping beds... and so much more!

Let us know if and when you can come so we can make sure to have lunch for you! That's right! we will prepare a delicious lunch for all of you!

There is a ton happening on the farm these days. We are in the midst of harvesting and hanging garlic- it's looking really beautiful and delicious! The summer crops are coming in- a variety of cucumbers, grey zucchini, and maxibel french filet beans for starters. You should definitely come see them all at the Farm Stand! We are also getting our fall plantings in slowly. We just transplanted Gonzales cabbage. I know. You are getting excited for cabbage.

Andy, our bee friend and bees!
And I know you are dying to hear the latest in our bee saga! As some of you may know that our bees died last winter (as I guess many did in Portland, I hear). Our friend, Andy asked to keep his hives at the farm, which is great on it's own. Then one of his hives got a little over populated and what did they do? swarmed! Right into our little persimmon tree. The bees were gently gathered into our little bee box where they are happily living today! What a beautiful story.
