    Dangerous parents in the school zone 2010-05-13 02:30:31

    I was going 20 MPH in a school zone on Smithville and Western in front of Wayne Elementary School.   In the oncoming lane a parent impatiently waited to make his left into the school parking lot which was coming up on my right. I watched as his body language screamed out that he was in a hurry. Then he made his move.” Bouya, in your face” he seemed to say as he pulled right in front of me almost causing me to hit his passenger—elementary school student, his son.

    So I asked myself the question. “Is the school zone to protect the kids from other drivers or from the parents”?

    Side impact collision is worst. But at 20 MPH the risk of fatality is less than at other speeds. I guess the dad knew that. Otherwise he wouldn’t have done that.

    1. Register for the 2017 CSA SeasonFri, 17 Feb 2017 18:17:20 +0000
      Greetings shareholders and friends of Abbe Hills Farm, Market tomorrow morning at the Community Center in MV.  We're bringing a few eggs and a few potatoes.  You could also get crusty bread, wine, coffee, meat, bakery, more eggs, more vegetables, black walnuts. The website drama continues, but the GOOD NEWS is - we've got the information for the 2017 CSA Season available at a temporary website, www.abbehills.farm  .  We'll go back to abbehills.com just as soon as we can, but for now ABBEHILLS.FARM is the place to get the scoop and a REGISTRATION FORM.  New website, mobile friendly.  I'm feeling pretty modern. We are excited to add a Cedar Rapids drop site, hoping to gain 50 new shareholder families this season.  Our host is Noelridge Christian Church, 7111 C Ave NE, near Boyson Rd at the Bowman Woods entrance off C Ave.  Pickups there are going to be all about the vegs. just 8:00 to 9:00 am on Saturday mornings.  And if you love the downtown market, you'll be able to get your veggies and still get downtown in plenty of time to get a treat. At the farm on Monday and Thursday afternoons, 4:30 until 6:00, we'll have all the bonuses that you love, including our favorite bread bakers, cheese and ice cream from Dan and Debbie's Creamery, apples shares and apples from Buffalo Ridge Orchard, and herbs and cherry tomatoes to pick.  The people who pick up at the farm are going to have all the fun! Sorry, but still no paying for your share with your credit card.  We don't have the right technology yet, but it could still happen before the first of June.  If you want to join and you just can't get yourself to print off a form, write a check, find an envelope, buy a stamp (a lot, I know), call me or zap me a note and we'll do it over the phone. 319-895-6924.  I'll also have plenty of registration forms with me at the market on Saturdays.  And I am perfectly OK taking cash! If you need a lunch-n-learn speaker for your company, or moms group, or Sunday school class, or yoga school, or exercise club, or cooking collective, or whatever, please let me know.  It's time to get out there and talk up the CSA.  I know there are at least fifty more families that would find out that they like vegetables if they gave it a try. See you tomorrow. Laura More...
    2. 2017 RealityFri, 17 Feb 2017 14:13:27 +0000
      eing a CSA member you need to be flexible and open minded.  As a small one man farm I work very hard at providing a great variety of crops to keep the shares interesting.  There is a tricky balance between growing interesting things and productive thing.  Most members who participate in my CSA comment on the nice variety of crops included in the share.  A lot of CSA's get good at growing a few major crops and hammer their customers with chard or beets or what ever they grow well.  I try to grow some reliably crops, some new crops and some more difficult to grow ones.  So each week there are some staples, something interesting or new to you and some odd ball once in a while.  I try to keep it interesting and sometimes at a compromise to volume.  Those productive weeks I add more to hopefully make up for any shortages in the future.  Last year there were not too many short weeks most weeks were fairly generous.  More...

    4. From the HeartTue, 14 Feb 2017 15:00:00 +0000
      My son is at the stage where he will stop me in the grocery store, insisting that he needs to give me a hug, kiss, and an I love you.  This is so precious it melts my heart every time.  I wish everyone could have this little taste of candy joy from a 3 year old each day.  Can you imagine how great we would all feel?  Well I thought we could each pay some joy forward to our farmers in February.  So this Saturday is the Love your Farmer themed farmers market.   The free activity for the kids, or anyone who would care to join in, is to make special I-love-you cards for our farmers, reminding them that we appreciate what they do for us year-round.  Kids can make a card and include a sticker of their favorite produce on it, or draw in an animal or beneficial insect for the many types of farmers we have at the market, like wool from sheep and alpacas, bees for honey, chicken, cows and pigs too.   Kids will be encouraged to show one or more of our farmers their artwork as a way to show appreciation to our farmers.   Wed love to have some adult cards made and given to our farmers too, no matter the age the gift of love is precious and appreciated. This time of year is the only physical break a farmer gets.  Instead of back-breaking field labor it is planning and paperwork time.  This is the pause before starting next years seedlings in the high tunnels and greenhouses.  It is when farmers order seeds and supplies, prepare their barns for birthing of animals, try to get CSA orders sold, and lay out their summer plans.  For me it is a favorite time that gets my heart beating with excitement as I pour over seed catalogs selecting next years goodies to plant and purchasing new varieties.    It is indeed heartwarming to feel the hope of the new season and all that it may bring.

    6. Make a Valentine's feastFri, 10 Feb 2017 16:20:07 +0000
      Greetings shareholders and friends of Abbe Hills Farm, Market tomorrow morning, 10:00 until noon.  We'll bring potatoes and a few eggs.  We might not stay the whole time because two thirds of my staff - including me - is going to a farm auction at 10:30, and the other third might wear out before the market does.   So, come early if you can.   The other vendors will have coffee, meat, vegetables, eggs, wine, dried blueberries, black walnuts, baked goodies, artisan bread, soup mixes, and crafts.  This would be a good week to plan a beautiful and delicious meal for your sweetie, and get nearly everything from right here at home. Michael and Sara Brannaman are selling beef, both quarters and cuts.  Their price sheet is attached.  Michael is my hay guy.  Cattle went to the locker last week, so this is a good time to make your order while there is still a good selection.   Their email is above.   Still no new website.  I'll let you know just as soon as it's available.  We're trying some new things this year that I'm pretty sure you are going to like.  Another clue - cheese might be involved.   Tomorrow is going to be a lovely day.  Hope you'll come to see us at the market.

      Greetings shareholders and friends of Abbe Hills Farm, Market tomorrow morning at the Community Center in Mt. Vernon, 10:00 until noon.  We're bringing potatoes.  You should come for the other good stuff - eggs, candy, coffee, bread, meat, dried blueberries, vegetables, soup mix, black walnuts.  The vendors really enjoy seeing you. Lots of things happened at Abbe Hills Farm this week.  I've got 95% of the details for the 2017 CSA season worked out and a totally new website that is ready to go up any minute.  I know all the other CSAs are sending out their brochures and advertising information now, but please, delay your decision a couple more days until we can get ours to you, too.  I think you'll be very happy with what we've got planned for this summer.  I'm already looking forward to it, and I'm the one who has to do the work!  Just think how great it's going to be for you! Later today, we're going to move my emails to the new host.  Should be painless, but sometimes bad things happen.  Like last June when I lost all my mailing lists and couldn't find all of you for a couple of weeks.  So keep looking for a note from me to confirm that all is well.  If problems develop, I'll keep you informed on the farm Facebook page until we get it sorted out.   Hope to see you picking up your vegetables at Abbe Hills Farm (or our satellite location!  A clue!) this summer.  And we hope to see you at the market tomorrow.
