Located at the base of Buckhorn Mountain at 6700' elevation, Buckhorn Gardens is a small, organic vegetable farm 13mi. south of Montrose, Colorado. Our farm is an active part of a 12,000 acre ranch; however, we only manage 3 acres with intensive vegetable gardening.

I can't take credit for this picture, this was all Darren! We hope everyone enjoyed the vegetables last week. This week will be a similar choice as of last week. More chinese cabbage, bok choy, spinach, green garlic, scallions, parsnips, and many greens. Some salad greens will also be in the rotation this week, along with alfafa sprouts. America is new kind of spinach that is now in the rotation. It is a super thick, deep green, savoy leafed spinach that I thought was succulant tasting. We have added some recipes to the blog and will keep adding them under the recipe post. Next week you can look forward to some radishes and possibly beets and turnips.

Kassy arrived from Oklahoma last week. We have kept her busy with lots of outside seeding and weeding. Yesterday we seeded radish, turnips, parsnips, beets, carrots, broccoli raab and more salad greens. Today we started planting the 100# of potatoes. Thats 12 different varieties! Yumm I can't wait for the new potatoes (the little ones we "steal" from the plant before they are fully developed).

Here are a few pictures from last weeks harvest.

  1. Wow! I ran across the link to your blog on the CSA site. Please tell my long lost friend Darren hello for me. Your farm looks amazing! I have talked about it forever but I would love to come visit sometime! Perhaps in a slower season than summer : )! Good luck and happy growing!
