So far the 2014 garden is off to a great start! At the end of May I shared a summary of what’s going well and what’s not-so-swell. At that time, the garden remained relatively pest-free. However in the short time since that post I’ve encountered to ...

Square Foot Garden Seed Tape

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Tuesday February 04, 2014   -   By Katie

Seeds come in many shapes and sizes. The tiniest seeds – such as radishes, carrots and onions – can be difficult to sow with precision. One way to address this problem is to use seed tape. Fortunately seed tape is easy to make, store and use, both in...

Frost! (And Other Updates)

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Monday May 13, 2013   -   By Katie

There’s a reason why the last frost date in Michigan (the reasonable date on which you can plant outside in the spring without worrying about frost harming your plants) has been moved to May 18 . Last night (May 12/13) we had a visit from good ole Jack...

Early Spring 2013 Update

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...

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...

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...

Seedling Gallery

Blog: Seasons at Procter Farm   -   Wednesday April 18, 2012   -   By Rebekah

Blog: Debbie's Garden   -   Monday October 17, 2011   -   By Chickadee1

Two things. One is Row Covers. They are great.....may have to put them back on if it heats up anymore....my lettuces don't like the heat!  Number Two is Beetles! Someone said they are "Kudzu" beetles....will they bother the garden I wonder?...

fall crops

Blog: Debbie's Garden   -   Tuesday September 13, 2011   -   By Chickadee1

Well, I am learning! It seems that the row covers help here in the deep south....when trying to grow fall crops of kale, collards, cabbage, broccoli, and other various things....I experimented with not using them versus using them. The sun/heat killed the...

We have been diligently experimenting with methods of extending the summer harvest into the late autumn months.  When the weather cooperates, staying warm into late October and even into November, it's easy to keep growing and harvesting the delicious...

Our Great Gardening Experiment 2010

Blog: Catbird Griddle   -   Thursday May 20, 2010   -   By Catbird

The record high for today--May 19--is 91 degrees (1962). On this same date in 1984, however, Angelica saw temps dip below freezing. After the May we've had this year, we can only cross our fingers for some of the fruit trees that were in full bloom...

Blog: Golden Touch Alpaca Farm   -   Wednesday April 15, 2009   -   By Shelley

I have been loving these Ted Talk Videos lately - There are so many interesting people out there doing amazing things and it is great to be able to get a glimpse into their insight. This one in particular hits home, as it is about the current "War on...
