If we were back in the hay business, I would be ecstatic about this weather - hot, dry and windy. But it is not good for growing vegetables. Luckily we can just turn the handle and the drip irrigation goes to work! Yesterday we spent time cutting all of the...

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...

If you’re a fan of Public Television, maybe you’ve seen some of the eye-opening agribusiness documentaries like “Food Inc.” or “Supersize Me.”  Several of these include visits to Joel Salatin’s Polyface Farms in Virginia, where cattle graze on pasture,...

Work on a small farm primarily consists of manual labor and is a grueling proposition.  James Carville stated, “Next to Love, the greatest gift someone can give is their labor”.  Never has such a statement hit closer to home then what we experienced...

We have been getting a warm rain for the last two days in the Delaware Valley. Fortunately at the farm, it has been raining sparingly. Warm rain makes every thing grow. And that includes the fungus and the weeds.  I expected the worst when I walked the...

The CSA and the market both went very well on Saturday. It was cool to see the excited faces of the CSA members as they went along the table selecting the fruits and vegetables that they wanted. A couple of first timers said they felt guilty about the produce...

While scouting the potato patch the day before last, I discovered some beginnings of the blight. As I looked up the diseased leaves to confirm my suspicion that it was late blight, my next thought was to contact our county ag agent to give him the word. You...

Anna and I put the rest of the drip line down last night. It rained all around us after much of the afternoon was hot and humid. I turned on the water for about an hour and a half last night. There was a time when I wouldn't think of watering after dark...

Something happened yesterday that very few people take into consideration when they think of farming.  My daughter Anna was helping my father put in some drip lines. I was busy fertilizing over in the same patch of ground. My ear caught bits and pieces...

We managed again to do very well at the market on Saturday. Next week we start the CSA and I am looking forward to seeing all of my old and new members. We lucked out in that the weather broke in time to get plenty of strawberries and asparagus for the market...

It has been cool, that's for sure. Even my fishing buddy Pat, who catches lobsters and fish off the South Jersey coast, says that the weather has pushed back the fishing season a couple of weeks. Those big beautiful strawberries have stopped ripening up, the...

  As the planting season is in full bore, many times we find ourselves so busy we don't know which way to turn. Tilling, plowing, weeding and planting are just some of our chores we try to fit in our busy days. Once in a while I like to take a break, walk...

Every year as I browse the seed stands at the local big box or hardware store, something always catches my eye and I say, "I've got to try and grow that!" This year it was the Burpee catalog that provided the impetus. I've always been a fan of...

The Colorado Potato Beetle is one of the earliest things that I can recollect when it comes to farming. That sounds kinda strange so let me explain. My grandfather was a tomato farmer. He grew what we call "can house" tomatoes for Violet Packing in...
