Winter is hanging on

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Monday March 24, 2014   -   By Terry

Okay, so March 20 was officially the first day of Spring. There were a few days of nice, sunny, spring-like weather BUT winter has not quite let go yet. With nighttime temps at 24 degrees last night, about the same tonight and even colder tomorrow night, I'm...

Scholarship for HS Seniors Looking at Ag-related C...

Blog: Shelley's Fresh Produce & Cut Flowers   -   Thursday January 23, 2014   -   By Shelleysproduce

I like to share useful information about agriculture with others. Here's a great opportunity for a scholarship if a high school senior is considering a college degree or diploma in an agriculture-related field: The CHS Foundation will award 50 $1,000 high...

Brrrrr! Cold Chicken Toes

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Wednesday January 08, 2014   -   By Terry

That's the only suitable title I could come up with for this post.  Sunday was fairly warm for January--in the upper 40's actually--then the wind blew and blew and the bottom fell out of the thermometer.  Monday and Tuesday night were both 8 degrees...

And all around the farm, the creatures were stirring....       Really looking for something to harm......did you think I was going through that whole poem?  Really........ Today was one of those wintertime treats!...

Preparing for Winter

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Monday November 11, 2013   -   By Terry

The weather prognosticators are calling for really cold weather tomorrow night--first really "hard freeze" of the year, although my thermometer read 24 degrees last night.  So that means removing the irrigation pump from the pond and...

Season Extenders

Blog: North Star Homestead Farms, LLC   -   Tuesday October 15, 2013   -   By Ann, Laura, and Kara

With 18 inches of snow still tumbling from the skies and sliding off the barn roof in mid-May this year, it’s been my grumble that we sure ought to have earned a late autumn.  We had a nip of frost during that cold and drizzly week in July,...

Gearing Up for Another Season

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Tuesday February 26, 2013   -   By Jeff

We are gearing up for the upcoming growing season at the Bountiful Blessings Farm. With the addition of a new high tunnel this year, we will once again be able to provide local customers with top quality, fresh produce earlier, without the loss of flavor. High...

Winter Strawberries

Blog: Red Ridge Farms   -   Friday February 08, 2013   -   By Jim & Ami

Last week, I headed out to the high tunnels to check on the progress of a few new crops, because I was concerned their immature leaves were too young to survive the frigid temperatures we were experiencing.   The quiet air was punctuated by the crunch...

Red Deuce in the High Tunnel

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Sunday April 29, 2012   -   By Jeff

Today has been a very busy day. We were going to head out to the church, but realized that there was too much to accomplish. Unfortunately, we were not able to attend. I really hate missing worship. Anyhow, we were going to transplant, but decided to work in...

Harvest Hill Veggies

Blog: Harvest Hill Farms   -   Monday April 23, 2012   -   By Justin & Sara

Harvest Hill Farms is currently constructing a 2900 sq ft high tunnel for vegetable production. We hope to have it up in the next few weeks and that means farm fresh vegetables well into fall and winter months. What is a high tunnel you may ask? It is a...

Extension Office Visit

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Saturday April 21, 2012   -   By Jeff

The weather here at Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce has been cold and blustery. After experiencing some eighty degree days a couple of weeks ago, it is difficult to get used to this colder weather. Yesterday, I seeded most of the balance of tomatoes and also...

Snow storm...

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Saturday April 14, 2012   -   By Shari

Sigh, Here it is, the middle of April and we're getting snowed upon. Forecast is for 2-4 inches today and tonight.  It kind of screws things up. We've sold our cow and the people want to come pick her up. It's totally clear at their house 17 miles...

Got lambs, kids, and a NRCS grant

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Wednesday March 21, 2012   -   By Shari

What a week!  First our ISP gets a little goofy, then our web host does the same... moves us to a new server, and fails to have us change the IP's at the domain registrar. Add to that, one desktop's wireless card fails, as our wireless modem gets a...

This week was a whirlwind... or was it a roller co...

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Sunday March 11, 2012   -   By Shari

The week began with lambs on the ground. The bad news is that after nearly round-the-clock efforts, we lost both twins. Mama ewe (named Charcoal) never dropped her milk, even though her bag was about to burst. First thing Monday, Bev and Cindy had to take Mom...

We are getting close to completion on our High tunnel. In the Greenhouse I am busy bumping up plants to go into the high tunnel and the gardens also plants for sale at the Farmer Market and the Oklahoma Food Co-op. for march and April sales.  

Bad bugs gone good?

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Tuesday October 11, 2011   -   By Terry

  We've always heard the expression good guys gone bad, but bad guys gone good? In the hoophouse, tomatoes were planted in late winter. During the summer they produced and produced bunches of tasty tomatoes. In the process, the tomato...

Flood On The Grass

Blog: Kinsman Farm   -   Friday April 22, 2011   -   By Valerie

Dew on the grass has lately seemed more like flood on the grass. We have had many rainy and cloudy days this month. And of course cool days. I am thankful for our high tunnels and low tunnels. This last November we tried something new with low tunnels. ...
