Home Grown Wyatt

Happy first day of Summer! Yippee! This summer we will be visiting farmers markets, festivals, farms and other doggies gardens. Stanzie and I are sniffing around for what's fresh, local and for dinner!

Todays stop....Luscher Farms
This is a multi use farm owned by the City of Lake Oswego.
The surrounding acreage is a CSA (community sponsored agriculture).
The public can buy a share of the bounty and pick up their produce, once a week. We did it one year. It's a fun way to explore many different veggies and support local farming
and support your local chicken too!
There is a lovely clematis collection at Luscher Farm
and garden plots, for people to do their own thing.
People do veggies.
Some folks just do flowers.
Okey Dokey Artichokey!
Some plots say "Keep Out".
Stanzie says, "Wyatt, come check out this Giant Cabbage!"
Happy Digging!

  1. Great idea to have a community garden! We have something similar in the UK, it's called allotments but you can't get them everywhere in the UK.
    You guys look quite at home at Lusher farm. We like the plot that says 'Keep out' LOL.

  2. We go to the farmers market very Saturday and Tuesday. We have been to some of the local farms too. We don't have a community farm. There are a few organic farms around that we buy from and we grow organic. We are still waiting for our squash but everything else is feeding us everyday. I am making pesto tonight. The baisl is finally ready!!!
    Love feeling good!!!!
    You welcome on the snail and slug killer!!!
    Glad to be of help!! Tom is also a good doctor, he has cured me of a bunch of things!!!
    XXOO, Fern

  3. Woof! Woof! GREAT Wyatt. You are lucky that they allowed you in their farm/garden. Most of the gardens here particularly farmers markets do not allow dogs/pets. Happy Digging. Lots of Golden Woofs, Sugar

  5. Wow! What a great idea. The 'grow your own' idea is a bit like our allotments. We have a plot of land that we pay a very small amount for each year and then grow our veg. Looks like you two dogs had a great time! Ros and Oscar

  6. Community farms/gardening are so great. I look forward to pictures from all the places you visit this summer.

  7. That's a healthy pursuit. Being out in the sun, growing things and then eating the harvest! AND you are allowed to go in to explore everything. Wyatt, you didn't water anything did you?

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella

    So that's what an artichokey is supposed to look like! Mom buys a plant every year and every year it just sits there and loses leaves and never grows! grrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
