Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Sunday May 13, 2012   -   By Jeff

Once again, it has been very busy at the Bountiful Blessings Farm. We have been working ground and planting. Today it will be repeated again. My dad worked ground down for us to plant today, so I should not have to do any more preparation; just get out there...

Do Not Worry

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Wednesday May 02, 2012   -   By Jeff

Today has been another busy day. In fact, I just got inside. I picked up some lumber and cement blocks this morning from a friend. Dad met me over there and helped me get loaded. I hauled the stuff home and we unloaded it and put it away. I took the truck and...

A Peaceful Easy Feeling

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Tuesday April 24, 2012   -   By Jeff

Wind can really make a difference in whether a day is nice or whether it is pleasant. Today has been a very nice day - it was not too warm, but the wind was somewhat calm and it made it so much nicer being outside. Dad worked on the sprayer some more today. We...

Tuesday and Wednesday were very busy days at the Bountiful Blessings Farm. We continued our transplanting and seeding. My dad worked on equipment and the high tunnel. He had a few last minute things to accomplish before we begin to plant. The tomatoes in the...

More Onions!

More onions! My wife said if she sees another onion, she is going to hit me! Onions were a good seller last year and we ran out, so this year we are planting more. Today, we planted more sets and seedlings. The look great! I am hoping for rain tonight and it...

Colder Temperatures

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Monday April 09, 2012   -   By Jeff

Today was a very busy day at the farm. Andy, dad and I went over to a friend's greenhouse to salvage some greenhouse benches. The wood was not in very good condition, so we took what would work for us and left the rest. It was kind of disappointing, but very...

Planting Taters!

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Thursday April 05, 2012   -   By Jeff

Once again, yesterday was a very busy day. I met with an agricultural adviser in the morning to determine some up coming plans. The meeting went well. My mom and dad cut and prepared more seed potatoes for planting today. They also went through the canna roots...

Garlic and Onions

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Thursday March 29, 2012   -   By Jeff

Today we started to plant garlic. Garlic can be planted either in the early spring or late fall or early winter. With that being said, I did not plant any this past fall or winter so I am planting it now. Poor weather conditions often mean that spring planted...

Another beautiful day in Hinckley, Illinois at Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce. Unfortunately we were unable to attend worship today, but we were able to get a lot accomplished at the farm. I finished pruning and spraying the fruit trees with dormant oil,...

Saturday at Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Saturday March 24, 2012   -   By Jeff

The weather has changed a bit here in DeKalb County, Illinois. We received some rain yesterday and last night. I am guessing about two-tenths. I have not put the rain gauge out yet this spring out of fear of it freezing and cracking the glass. Today I have...

The Latest

Another productive day yesterday. I was able to get my seeding and transplanting accomplished and I moved the the stuff from the garage that needed moving. I also headed out to Rural King and picked up a seven foot King Kutter rototiller. This is going to be...

Today's Update

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Thursday March 22, 2012   -   By Jeff

How can one complain when the weather is so nice? Yesterday was a gorgeous day! It was also a very productive day. I was able to get the tractor repaired. It was, as I suspected, a plugged fuel line. I used the air compressor and blew the line out and it...

Busy, Busy, Busy!

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Wednesday March 21, 2012   -   By Jeff

Yesterday was a long day. I was able to get a lot accomplished, but I did not get in until after eight. Many of the tomatoes in the seed room needed to be transplanted and moved into the greenhouse, so I worked on that after seeding the varieties scheduled for...

Dirty Fuel Filters

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Friday March 16, 2012   -   By Jeff

Last night I spent about twenty minutes writing a blog entry and I see it is not here. I am not sure what happened. Maybe I did not do something correctly. It was almost nine-thirty before I sat down to eat supper and here it is almost nine tonight and I am...

Coldframes and Cabbage

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Wednesday March 14, 2012   -   By Jeff

Today has been a busy day. I have been working on the second cold frame and sowing more seed. I moved some of the cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower into the first coldframe. It has been difficult because the temperature was almost eighty today! How can I keep...

Blog: Bountiful Blessings Farm Produce   -   Monday March 12, 2012   -   By Jeff

The weather here in Northern Illinois is ridiculous. March temperatures have been incredibly high. In fact tomorrow it is supposed to reach 74 degrees. The average for the state is around 41 degrees. I wonder if we will get hit later with colder temperatures...
