Late Spring Farmers Reap Different Crops From Cold, Wet Northwest Weather

KUOW News

July 27, 2011

Farmer Peroni can afford failures like this because he grows so many different crops, over 150 varieties. Compare that to big farmer Fenn, who grows only about six. For every crop that suffers at Peroni's farm, another thrives. The cool spring may have stunted his corn, but his kohlrabi looks fantastic. . .

Local Farms Help to Build Community

by Mike Peroni
for South Sound Green Pages, April 2009

Every day, the morning paper or the bookmarked blog brings an avalanche of reasons to curl back up and put your head under the covers. However, an old cliché reminds me that with challenge comes opportunity.

In my view, it's every human's primordial desire to be in touch with the source of their food and, in the final analysis, what people really want is to contribute to something much greater than themselves. . .

Mike: Rutabaga, beets, carrots, some celeriac, some spinach, we may have some purple cabbage, kale. We have about 3-4 varieties of potatoes, and 3-4 varieties of onions in storage. We have a lot that's under remay that's harvestable or almost-harvestable once the soil warms up a bit. . .
