Early May Flooding 2010

Blog: Grinning Planet Farm   -   Monday May 03, 2010   -   By Donna

May 1st and May 2nd brought in heavy rains and flooding in the area.  Although we had standing water on the property our raised beds drained fairly well.  The cherry bushes were beaten down, but they look like they will bounce back.  The sun is...

Blog: Cookus Interruptus   -   Thursday April 22, 2010   -   By Cynthia

Did you know you can make an awesome creamed soup by using rolled oats instead of dairy?  Well it’s true.  With some vegetable stock, dill, cumin, a touch of lemon and fresh local asparagus you will have the perfect springtime tonic.  Plus, Jane...

Blog: Carden's Garden   -   Thursday April 01, 2010   -   By Farmer Breck

I've got a great way for you to buy the veggies and flowers you want. You may order on the weekend and pick up your order during the week. Simple and easy. Let me know if you have questions and/or want me to put you on the email list to be notified when and...

We've started planting!

Blog: Ms Robin's Garden   -   Tuesday March 23, 2010   -   By Robin

Nothing quite as entertaining as the adventure with the Butterfly Bush the other day to report. Unless of course, you were actually here to witness my hobbling around the place the next day. I didn't hurt myself, but I sure hurt all over. Especially...

The unconventional gardener

Blog: Ms Robin's Garden   -   Monday March 08, 2010   -   By Robin

That's me, the unconventional gardener. Nothing weird mind you, just doing things a little different. When I come across something that makes my work easier, or my body ache less, the decision to switch methods comes easily. No matter how silly it makes...

Herbs

Blog: Ms Robin's Garden   -   Saturday March 06, 2010   -   By Robin

I have to confess, I haven't really used much in the way of fresh herbs in the past. I did add some fresh Rosemary to a Pot Roast one time and it was amazing. Al likes to experiment when he cooks, so he uses a lot of different dried herbs....

Vegetables As A Healthy Food Choice

Blog: Mississippi Moon Naturals   -   Wednesday February 03, 2010   -   By Pamela

During the cold winter days, I long to be working out in my vegetable gardens. It is the first part of February and I have my section of the early vegetable garden planned out and prepared for planting. February 14th - Valentine's Day is when I will...

Boulder Belt Farm Share Initiative, Week 10

Blog: Boulder Belt Eco-Farm   -   Monday June 15, 2009   -   By Lucy

It's been another busy week on the farm. First of all, I am happy to report that the storms of last week were easy on us. Eaton got golf ball sized hail. We got no hail at all and very little rain out of that storm (but we did get over 1/2 inch the next day)....

Boulder Belt Farm Share Week 9

Blog: Boulder Belt Eco-Farm   -   Monday June 08, 2009   -   By Lucy

  It's June! the start of summer or something like that. Early June is when we transplant the tomatoes as this is when we are about 99% assured there will be no frost (there was a frost after June 7th in the late 1980's I remember but 99 years out of 100...

Boulder Belt Farm Share Week 7

Blog: Boulder Belt Eco-Farm   -   Thursday May 21, 2009   -   By Lucy

It's another week of yummy food. The weather is improving quite a bit. We got over 3" of rain over the weekend which was badly needed. It got cold but we did not get much, if any frost (I think a couple of the tiny asparagus spears got frost damaged but...

Boulder Belt farm Share Vol 1 issue 6

Blog: Boulder Belt Eco-Farm   -   Thursday May 14, 2009   -   By Lucy

Mid May on the farm means a lot of weed control. Since we do not use chemicals that means a lot of mowing (which also keeps small rodents from eating the crops, and this did happen over the weekend-something took out 1/2 bed of cabbage. Don't worry we have...

It's been a busy week here at the farm. I have been starting hundreds of seeds-Asian greens (something called tong ho and a bok choy), celery that was completely unplanned but Eugene found a packet with a lot of seeds so I planted several hundred. parsley that...

asparagus, lettuce and spinach

Blog: Overboe Farms   -   Tuesday April 21, 2009   -   By Fran or Brian

April 21, 2009 Spring has sprung!  And the aspargus is sprouting daily--which means, we are harvesting this beautiful vegetable daily! Grown without chemicals, this is the best we have ever tasted.  We sometimes add raw asparagus to a salad for...

Warm weather and rain has made asparagus start to ...

Blog: Carden's Garden   -   Thursday March 19, 2009   -   By Farmer Breck

Spring has sprung in Ballardsville KY. Peas (sugar snaps, shellies, snow) are breaking through the soil. I missed setting out transplants this week so i will wait on the soil to dry out again. I have flats (soil blocks) of spinich, lettuce, broccoli,...
