We Harvest in January in Southwest Nova

Posted on by Gilberte Doelle


Kale is one of the very precious vegetables you can possibly harvest outside in Southwest Nova Scotia.

Just be careful not to damage the main stem. You can pick frozen and let them thaw in the fridge or on the kitchen counter.


Winter local greens are high in nutrients because they grow so much slower than summer time the vitamins and minerals are concentrated.

Have greens as much as you can eat through the winter and stay healthy!


September on the farm . . .

Posted on by Gilberte Doelle

Monarchs here, there and everywhere! Thanks to Lisa Proulx,"The Butterfly Lady of Lake Larose" for passing along some monarch caterpillars for us to care for. They have now scurried off their milkweed and found nice places to form a chrysalis.

Among the parsley. . .

. . . and rosemary . . .

. . . and even on a fig leaf. Monarchs on fig trees? Only in Gilbert's Cove!


Today the bees were busy after the rain . . .

. . . on the borage . . .

. . . and Mexican torch flowers.


What a glorious time of the year!

Spring to Summer

Posted on by Gilberte Doelle

More tomatoes, cucumbers, peas, summer turnips, carrots and broccoli are on the way for CSA members. And another couple of weeks before green beans begin. The field crops are still catching up from the slow beginning to spring but the tomatoes and peas are flowering and fruiting. And the cole crops and root crops are slowly but surely growing.

This is a great time of the year to freeze and dry herbs for the winter. With a fresh supply of chives, dill, cilantro, rosemary, etc., let us know if you'd like any specific herbs and we can have the bunches picked and ready for you. We can also take bulk orders for kale if you'd like to freeze or make big batches of kale chips, yum!

And just a reminder to mark your calendars for Open Farm Day on September 20th. The farm will be bursting and bustling with people, food and fun (and most likely, sun)!
