Planting Early This Year

Blog: Hartland Farms   -   Sunday April 15, 2012   -   By Patricia and Eric

What  strange weather we have had.  Eric has  planted our onions.  Today's rain was much needed!  Now it is too wet to finish planting the leeks.  Oh well it gave him a break. Our turkeys are growing well.  The rye we...

We Were Expecting Rain

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Wednesday March 07, 2012   -   By Twilya

We thought it was going to rain…   … but it did not.   Today is windy but still dry and at this point it is likely our chance for rain has passed.   Because we thought it was going to rain we busied ourselves with a few...

Heirloom Peppers and a Long Day

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Sunday February 19, 2012   -   By Jeff

Today was another productive day. Although, I wish I could have attended worship this morning. Nonetheless, I was able to complete the manure detail. It is all spread and ready for the ground to be worked down this spring. I worked on the seed room and...

An Exciting Season Just Around the Corner

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Thursday February 16, 2012   -   By Jeff

Well another day without being able to spread manure. Maybe tomorrow if it remains frozen in the field. I certainly do not want to make a big mess out of the ground by driving over it and packing it all down because it is too muddy. I am going to try it this...

Market Day

Blog: Moonstruck Farms   -   Friday March 11, 2011   -   By Rowena

The last few days are a total blur...started Wednesday with a little planting, some bok choy, tatsoi, more spinach and of course a sprinkling of radishes and green onions.  A market gardener plants in a completely different pattern than most conventional...

Copra Onions

Blog: Fitzgerald's Family Farm, LLC   -   Tuesday March 08, 2011   -   By Sharon

This year I decided to try starting my onions from seeds rather than from sets.  Sets are when you buy little baby onions and plant them to grow into larger onions.  It's a lot less expensive to start them from seed and if it doesn't work, I figure I...

Blog: Moonstruck Farms   -   Saturday January 15, 2011   -   By Rowena

A family came to the farm today from the city....they were lost  parked on the corner of my property with me and the chickens waving at them trying to get their attention. I was so self-conscious because my place is more of a construction zone than a farm...

Blog: Moonstruck Farms   -   Monday December 27, 2010   -   By Rowena

Wow, what a day.  This is my favorite time of year to work outside...yes I know that does not follow the norm, but I am a winter person and I love working hard and not pouring sweat.  45 degrees with no wind is perfect working weather!!  I don't...

Garlic and the Flavorful Foursome

Blog: Christopher Ranch   -   Monday November 15, 2010   -   By Justin

Oh, yes, without a doubt my favorite headline of the week was: “Martha Stewart Liquors Up Turkey Before The Slaughter!” Have to admire Martha’s somewhat humane way of making the Thanksgiving experience less painful for the birds, but if she really wants them...
