Thoughts for Monday, June 23, 2014

Blog: Spinella Farm   -   Monday June 23, 2014   -   By Edward

As much as I think I'm behind in some of my tasks on the farm, when I look around and think about it, I'm not bad off at all. There is always something to do and yes, some things do get a little farther beyond then you would like them to be. But considering...

A few days ago I was performing weed control behind the high tunnel (aka mowing with the tractor).  A creek runs along behind the high tunnel and while backing the mower out over the edge of the creek to reduce the area of snake habitat, I spied several...

Blog: Moonstruck Farms   -   Monday February 04, 2013   -   By Rowena

Well, this does not really show a fantastic picture, but all the little brown things on the ground are tree protectors on the trees....better pictures once they get bigger and bloom. The trees are just minus some mulching, tree protectors and tags. We also put...

It is approximately midnight and in seven hours I will be on my way to the Old Cheney Road Farmers Market in Lincoln, NE.   In tow is a lot of hard work and if I don’t day some great produce.   The girls and I spent the last...

Winter coming...

Blog: Big Valley Ranch   -   Tuesday November 01, 2011   -   By Desiree

Nov 1, 2011 With winter coming on we will still do what growing we can. We still have a few carrots in the ground and the Swiss Chard after being divided is coming on strong. The rhubarb has done well all the year and needs to be divided...

Back to growing

Blog: Big Valley Ranch   -   Sunday May 15, 2011   -   By Desiree

Hay to all who are feeling ignored. So sorry but our attention has been focused elsewhere. The garden has been started and is also running late, which is good given our most recent weather. We have had almost freezing temps yesterday and today, hail as...

The Corn is as High as an Elephant's Eye

Blog: Avalon Farms Premium Homegrown   -   Monday July 05, 2010   -   By Brigette

The market gardens and high tunnels are looking good, even as hot as it has been. Night time temperatures during the month of June were running about 10 degrees above normal and we certainly had sufficient rainfall. Unfortunately, that wasn't good weather for...

The garden is just starting to wake up and the stone fruit trees are just starting to bloom (the cherries are thinking about it). It will be a little time yet before we have much for the public. The overwintered swiss chard is starting to add new...

Spring is coming?

Blog: Evans Family Farm   -   Wednesday March 11, 2009   -   By Merry

Last week, mother nature teased us.  We had 62 degree days.  Sun was shining on the field.  Can we plant?  No, not in Wisconsin.   Today it's 30 degrees with wind chill that dips into the single digits.  All of the snow has...

The garlic made it into the ground.  We have been fortunate to have a few co-ops around the area to sell the remaining garlic.  Basics Co-op in Janesville and Bushel and Pecks in Beloit have our beautiful hardneck garlic for sale.  As we...

Time to Plant the Garlic!

Blog: Evans Family Farm   -   Thursday November 06, 2008   -   By Merry

Garlic, so much Garlic and so little time!   Last year we planted 48,000 cloves of garlic in 7 varietes.  We're scaling back this year and planting only our biggest and favorite varieties.  Trying new methods of mulching like leaves instead...
