Check out this snippet from Caitlin from our interview in Loam Magazine! We've got copies for sale for $20, dm us if you want to buy a print issue! #Repost from @loammagazine ... β€œAlthough it’s good to be resilient, what we are withstanding is so important to address. For me, I’m resisting a world that has made it hard to imagine surviving. I grew up surrounded by and implicated in the vicious culture of White America, in the kind of town that had a big heroin problem before β€˜the opioid crisis’ got its name, and as a weird, lonely trans girl hiding on the fringes. Throughout my adult life, I’ve worked many jobs that injure and exhaust me. Trying to cope with, and sometimes ignore, the physical effects of that life is painful and absolutely unsustainable. Against this, farming helps me survive. It’s been something very gentle, and humbling in the most positive sense of the word. The work is physically very demanding, but it can be approached in whatever way I need to, and is rewarding in a way that restaurant work never has been for me. It’s a kind of caring labor, and in this context where my labor and time aren’t commodities, that care can be something that gives me place and opens my life to being cared for. I think what our farm has to offer other people in the way of resilience will be very different, because other people have very different challenges and needs. But the essential parts of this work, interdependent and free relationships of care, are what a radical sort of resiliency is made of and are what I want to spread.” Caitlin of @sweethollowfarm reflects on resilience in this heart-filling feature from the current issue of Loam. πŸ“·@jessdee

We love this picture of Sweet Hollow farmers with Claire of ROAR and our most loyal and loving farmstand regular, Shirley (second from the left). Last farmstand, we had the opportunity to take this picture and hang out with Shirley for a bit. That evening when we got home, Vero received an email from Shirley with pictures and an AMAZING short video she put together for us "as propaganda", in her own words. Thank you Shirley!!! . This season we have made some really beautiful connections with our CSA members and patrons at our mobile farmstand. πŸ’•Thank you for being our community, we look forward to seeing you every week and we are so honored to be your farmers! . Video being posted soon, check it out and cry your eyes out with glee while looking at our sweaty little faces from Shirley's POV πŸ˜­πŸ’— . . . #wehavethebestregulars #thankyoushirley #feastwithus #weloveyou #shfmobilefarmstand #sweethollowcsa #farmstand #marketday #youngfarmers #meridiancenterforhealth #roarseattle #21acres #sweethollowfarm

Caraflex round 2! Distinctly sweet, crisp, and our all time fav for fermentation projects. Wider spacing and less pest pressure than our earlier crop making for a beatiful harvest over the next weeks πŸ”ͺ . . . #cabbage #caraflexcabbage #conecabbage #conehead #sumptuous #delectable #vegetablecandy #kraut #curtido #fermentation #washpack #sweethollowcsa #feastwithus #weloveyou #queerswhofarm #queerswhoferment #freakswhofarm #sweethollowfarm

Last evening's harvest in the forest-like kale patch, where the leaves of kale are literally 3ft long and bigger than our heads! Thanks to @wild_garden_seed for growing out varieties that make us feel like we've won a prize! πŸ† . . . #sweethollowcsa #shfmobilefarmstand #prizewinner #champion #1stplace #trophy #kale #giantvegetables #leafygreens #sustainableag #regenerativeag #farmervero #brownfarmer #qtpocfarmer #queerswhofarm #freakswhofarm #sweethollowfarm

Hilarity and delight in the sqaush patch today visiting the totally unirrigated and grassy delicata rows. Here's a big old delicata squash showing off how much water-holding capacity we have in the soil here πŸ˜‚ . . . #deeproots #deepwater #bigvegetableenergy #piscesfullmoon #wintersquash #lovewhatyoueat #growgrowgrow #fieldwalk #queerswhofarm #freakswhofarm #sweethollowfarm

πŸ₯’the most perfect mutantsπŸ₯’ and the Pune Kheera just keep coming! Our most prolific fruiting crop this year, we’re almost at 300 pounds harvested off of just 80 feet!

Tomatoes πŸ…πŸ… juuust ripening up for us in Woodinville/Sammamish Valley! Still hard at work here at Sweet Hollow. It's been a heartbreak ridden growing season for us in many ways... full of failure, learning, burnout and always trying to continue building resilience and stamina for this work. Hopefully once the season is over we can share more reflections on our sad-funny #farmfail moments, but for right now, onwards! Thanks for cheering us on y'all πŸ’› . . . #weloveyou #feastwithus #hardknocklife #intheweeds #supportyoungfarmers #evenwhenwefail #burnout #seekingmentors #resilience #perseverence #faith #hugafarmer #tryalittletenderness #regenerativeag #sustainableag #queerfarmers #queerswhofarm #freakswhofarm #sweethollowfarm
