We are signing up customers for shares in our CSA. We have three drop sites--the Eastside Farmers Market, a house near Saint Arnold's Brewery and the Health Museum. Deliveries will start the first week of September, but the planting has begun. The CSA is limited to the first 100 who join our effort. https://thelaughingfrogfarm.com/csa/

We are off on a trip. We are headed today toward Mississippi to interview some ram lambs at Cowpen Creek Farm. We are going to see Salamander Springs Farm, a permaculture farm, in Berea, Ky, my home town. Visits with my sister's family, breakfast with college friends, other farm visits and down time. This is the first real trip the two of have taken together in years that did not revolve around a funeral or a wedding.

We will be at the market on Saturday with whole chickens, lots of vegetables, flowers, and a smile. Hope to see you. I do not plan to bring plants unless someone orders them. On Sunday Kenan and I head out to Cowpen Creek Farm in Mississippi to interview ram lambs. From there we head to Berea, Ky, my home town, to visit a permaculture farm. Breakfast with friends on Sunday morning, July 9, at the Dinner Bell. Hope lots of my Berea friends can be there. Chandler will hold down the market tasks on July 8.

The sheep are hanging out in the woods The chickens sourced shade to keep cool The dogs dig holes under the porch The geese splash each other in the pool Midday, and we work in sun Sweating in humidity, marginally effective Remind me again who the intelligent ones are I might need to alter my perspective.

If you are on my page you should be able to laugh and cry at this headline, but the general disconnect that Americans have with the food system is alarming. Many people are agriculturally illiterate, researchers say. They blame the industrial food system.

Tess and Sabine are checking out the new mushroom beds. These should be ready in the fall. Oyster mushrooms ready now at the market on Saturday.

I will be at the HUG meeting tonight talking about how we integrate animals into our vegetable production. The history of the farm was always a place where animals and plants were rotated in the fields. The animal manure provided fertility for the plants to grow. In the last 75 years, farming has steadily moved away from that. They have created new industries providing fertility through fossil fuel based fertilizers, mined amendments and manure, blood meal and bone meal collected from confined animal feeding operations. These are trucked to the farm, spread with tractors and tilled into the soil, destroying the microbiology of the soil food web. The nutrients in the soil and our food have plummeted and diet related disease has skyrocketed. Laughing Frog Farm is primarily interested in providing nutrient dense, organic food. They raise sheep and chickens in rotation with the plants and the animals fertilize and aerate the soil. The soil at the farm is not tilled mechanically. The result is soil that has great structure, fertility and crop yields. Glen Miracle started his first organic garden in Houston's east end in 1978 and began Laughing Frog Farm in 2001. He will discuss the methods, the research, and the results of this journey.

This pasture after hosting 200 chickens and a few days with sheep is getting groomed as the fall garden. The beds curve to better distribute water and avoid eroding runoff.
