Farm Journal: Late Summer on the Farm

Late summer on the farm is a time of increasing harvest and lots of weeding. The rains we have gotten have helped with the scarce water supply, though we have been modifying our irrigation and planting practices over the last few years as we become more concerned with the flow of the river, the ditches and the spotty monsoon season.

Farm Journal: Fruit Trees Boom and Bust Throughout the Seasons

Fruit Trees at Los Poblanos - elderberry

Fruit trees are integrated throughout the landscape at Los Poblanos. We grow a wide variety, each with a distinct season and individual flavor. The farm team meets regularly with the culinary team, and much of what we plant reflects direct requests from chefs, bakers and others who help us to develop a farm that supports the diversity of Los Poblanos. From the mulberry syrup in your cocktail, to a plum tart in the restaurant and the blossoms and branches that adorn our public spaces, fruit trees enliven every season on the farm. Some are hardy and reliable, while others have challenges that can lead to bounty or failure.
