The oldest building on our property. Probably from the 1880s.

Abundantly Green is a small organic farm that started growing vegetables in 2004. We grow a variety of vegetables that are mainly heirloom and open-pollinated varieties that grow in our short maritime season. 

We hope that you enjoy a slightly wilder farm that has the mark of each of the generations who lived here.

Our goal is to live gently on our land.  Click here to learn more.

Thoughts on the 45th Earth Day

This week on April 22, is the 45th Earth Day.  Somewhere around here is the button I bought the first Earth Day, a peace symbol that formed a quavering circle, the Earth, around a dying tree.  A picture of one is above.  I remember being attracted to that image because we were losing all of our pine trees to the Pine Rust blight.  We lost at least a couple dozen pine trees, and there are no pines on the farm, now.

It never crossed my (Marilyn’s) mind that the Pacific Ocean would have something called the warm blob, and that the natural food in the Pacific would become so scarce that starving seals would wash up on our shores.  There was no talk of a drought in California that could kill farming there, or the long deep freeze of the northern Eastern Seaboard.  No one predicted that the NE Pacific Ocean would have sea surface temperature anomalies that would affect the air temperatures downwind in Washington State.  (Read about it in “Causes and Impacts of the 2014 Warm Anomaly in the NE Pacific”at http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1002/2015GL063306/abstract.)

This farm is our tiny haven for nature.  It looks much as it always has.  I have pictures that are over 100 years old, and it seems much the same.  But the world around us is not the same, and it is very worrisome.  For many years we have been aware that each year the number of migratory birds declines by a very large percentage of population.  The Audubon Society reports that 314 species are the brink of extinction.  However, the fact is that these birds are “canaries in coal mines.”  They indicate that the humans are next.  The Earth will survive without us, but we cannot survive without her. 

Saving this tiny patch of the earth is why we farm.  We could do other things, but this farm, and thus the Earth, is so beautiful we want to keep it.  We also want to keep the balance of the Earth that keeps us humans alive.

Thank you Ken! Getting down and dirty for your food.
Yesterday Ken worked with Brian planting peas.  Brian had already transplanted some peas, but the Oregon Giant Sugar Snaps are in the ground.  Brian planted carrots earlier this week, and last week Brian, D, and I planted Ailsa Craig onions.  Lots more to go into the ground.  We appreciate our volunteers.
