Celebration of the equinox, golden beets trials, and more...

Posted 9/21/2017

Very happy fall equinox to all! Seems this is the week the harvest menu has made an almost complete turn to the rich tastes and textures of the fall season. The golden beets pictured here are part of a multi year, collaborative research project  funded by the Bauta Family Initiative on Canadian Seed Security, and led in this region by Farm Folk City Folk and the UBC Farm.  After the harvest evaluation yesterday, we harvested and bunched several of the best for our weekly harvest box members. 

We are one of seven participating farm sites trailing golden beets this year, in efforts to learn more about production potential and comparative performance, as well as investing farm field space and our most precious farm resource--time-- to play a small role in helping to build capacity for regional seed production. See previous postings on the BC Seed Trials or head to their website for more info if interested.....
