Winter Update

Blog: The Depot Farm   -   Tuesday December 30, 2014   -   By Phil

  Happy Holidays All!   While we spent the last few weeks with friends and family and enjoying their company (and a little down time for us!), time marches on and we need to get a jump on the new year. Most of the seeds and supplies are on order;...

Composting in Place

Blog: The Depot Farm   -   Tuesday November 04, 2014   -   By Phil

  With a large area cultivated and planted every year, producing enough compost in a pile is impossible. We use mulch to conserve water and control weeds wherever possible. By adding leaves, grass clippings, and plant debris throughout the year (spread...

Say It Ain't So!

Blog: The Depot Farm   -   Wednesday October 15, 2014   -   By Phil

  Yet another growing season is coming to an end. This week marks the last pickup of our CSA. Frost came Saturday night and only the hardy survived. While the cold tolerant crops continue to grow; most of the beds are ready to be put to rest for the...

The Joys of Fall

Blog: Woods' Edge Apples Orchard   -   Monday September 22, 2014   -   By Laurie

When you're growing food, every year is a different experience.  Though we lost around 400 trees to the harsh winter, reducing our overall crop volume, the apples we do have are absolutely beautiful.  Good size, deep red coloring and excellent...

Fall Update

Blog: The Depot Farm   -   Thursday September 18, 2014   -   By Phil

  Time for the fall update around our farm!   Tomatoes and peppers were excellent this year. Another week or two and they will be done. Our fall kale, lettuces and spinach is coming in; along with the carrots and beets. The cool weather has kept...

Tomato Season

Blog: The Depot Farm   -   Monday August 11, 2014   -   By Phil

  Tomatoes; finally. About 10 days later than usual, but all the heirlooms are beginning to come in. Nice size, very little cracking, the bushes are loaded with them. No sign of blight (it's been a very wet year), plants are healthy and don't appear to be...

Simpler Ways

Blog: The Depot Farm   -   Tuesday March 25, 2014   -   By Phil

  Being an organic grower, I find it is more of a lifestyle choice than a production method. It reaches into every facet of my life; not only what I eat. I make a conscience effort to use only the minimum outside inputs to produce the expected results....

At the Seed of an Apple...

Blog: Healthway Farms & CSA   -   Monday March 24, 2014   -   By Sam

To be honest, there really isn't any part of farming that I haven't enjoyed at least a little bit so far--any kind of planting, caring, harvesting, selling, or maintaining all have their level of soul-deep satisfaction. But at the end of the day, my passion on...

Optimistic Nature

Blog: The Depot Farm   -   Saturday March 15, 2014   -   By Phil

  Gardeners and farmers are optimistic people in general. We're content to plant a seed; nurture and pamper it for 3-4 months in the hopes of getting a carrot or onion we can eat. Not all that efficient overall, but it does have it's rewards. We get to...
