Radish Tester

Blog: Black Dog Farms   -   Wednesday May 01, 2013   -   By Kevin

Checking on the garden/farm/plot this morning I found that my little test area of radishes is going crazy. About 50 of them are poking up and getting a bit larger. Every year I plant a small test area of something that I have never tried before. Now, just the...

Oh yeah. With the weather here in the Magic Valley finally warming up, again, things are starting to happen in the garden. Green things are popping up all over the place. I noticed yesterday while checking the water system that the potatoes are finally...

Going Higher Tech

Blog: Black Dog Farms   -   Monday April 22, 2013   -   By Kevin

 For years I have used good old Excel in order to keep track of my business. Debits, credits, sales, etc. When I first started using a simple spreadsheet, back in the early 90's, it seemed like a wonderful invention. I would sit down every night and input...

Last summer I built a new little greenhouse in order to test out a few ideas. Basically my ideas revolve around planting some stuff that I have never really grown before. Give it a good start in the early spring and see how they do. About 2 months ago I...

Another huge weather change here in southern Idaho. A few weeks ago we were planting seeds while wearing shorts and T-shirts. Not today. This morning we woke up to a thin crust of ice on everything and a wake-up temperature of 27 degrees here at Black Dog...

This morning, while running an errand, I happened to be driving by a local food growing establishment. A farm. I happen to know where they sell the "food" that they grow and I do not want it. Not after this morning. A tractor was driving up and down...

This year I had to pick up a bit of new land in order to accommodate everyone.Lots of new share holders. That also means more farm boxes for me to build. I had better get working. Not enough hours in a day from now until around the end of October. I have to...

Even though it has been raining cats and dogs for the last 24 hours, with much more on the way, I went out and took a look at my rows last night. Besides onions, we now have radishes, potatoes, turnips, and rutabagas popping their tiny green shoots out above...

Onions popping up!

Welcome To All New Farm Boxers

Blog: Black Dog Farms   -   Tuesday March 05, 2013   -   By Kevin

I am not sure if Farm Boxers is a legal. Most English teachers would go nuts with that one. I am probably breaking more than a few grammar rules. All that college did not pay off I guess. OK. Here goes. This year I have been getting inundated with possible...
