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...

Blog: Spinella Farm   -   Friday June 06, 2014   -   By Edward

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...

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Monday April 01, 2013   -   By Katie

NOTE: Ooops! Somehow I managed to only save this as a draft and did not publish it. This was supposed to be posted on April 1 (no joke). Keep that in mind as you read my "today"s and "yesterday"s. - Farmer Katie Today’s Headline: No...

Shady Vegetable Garden Plans

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Friday March 08, 2013   -   By Katie

A few weeks ago I shared on our Facebook page that I was getting excited about ordering seeds for 2013. Our friend and CSA customer Joli Lorion-Fytczyk commented asking about what sorts of plants to grow in a shaded yard. What a wonderful question! She...

Winter Gardening Confessions (An Update)

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Wednesday January 09, 2013   -   By Katie

Seems like anytime I’m making small talk these days I’m asked “How’s your garden?” (No complaints here; I’m happy to share!) So, let me just tell you how the garden is. It’s good. But not as expected. I just paid the garden a visit yesterday for the first...

Black Friday Black Gold

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Tuesday November 27, 2012   -   By Katie

I hope you all had a fabulous Thanksgiving holiday! We enjoyed ours and know that we have much to be thankful for. Many of you probably also ‘celebrated’ Black Friday by standing in unbelievably long lines early in the cold morning to get great deals on...

Baby, it's (almost) cold outside!

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Friday September 28, 2012   -   By Katie

It’s fall. Big time. Temperatures are dropping along with brown and orange leaves. The tomato plants are bending beneath the weight of green fruit hoping for enough time. (I’ll be picking them before we get frost.) The zucchini, cucumbers and beans are...

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Saturday June 30, 2012   -   By Twilya

It is just past midnight and everything except for a few very last minute picks everything has been picked, washed, bagged tagged and packed.   I don’t think my car has ever been fuller.   We are still looking for a van that is within our price...

The Bounty

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Tuesday June 26, 2012   -   By Twilya

We ENJOYED our first beefsteak tomato of the season.   It was big enough one tomato was all we needed.   It was good, full of flavor and just the right amount of acidity.   I have several more that are available now and several more that...

Saturday

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Saturday June 16, 2012   -   By Twilya

It rained and they say more is coming.   Tom is relieved … so am I.   It came softly and the clouds moved in and so most of it is soaking in.   We still need more but this was as close to a perfect rain as it probably gets.   For now...

Monday

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Monday June 11, 2012   -   By Twilya

Sunday morning Autie woke up at 2:30 a.m. (as I was hoping to finally go to bed) with a fever and throwing up.   With Tom in the midst of wheat harvest I was unable to make it to the Old Cheney Road Farmers Market in Lincoln, NE.   Normally Tom...

Memorial Day

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Monday May 28, 2012   -   By Twilya

Memorial Day weekend was nice.   I did not go to my markets.   The crowds are usually low and my produce was not quite there.   This was our chance to have a little calm before the summer madness.   Livie’s big news...
