I Love a Rainy Night

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Saturday August 25, 2012   -   By Twilya

I love a rainy night and since last night we have received a little over three inches.   It has been the slow soaking kind for the most part and WOW is it muddy.   So muddy in fact tonight when I was picking green beans I got so stuck I could...

1,000 lbs of Winter Squash...and counting

Blog: Seasons at Procter Farm   -   Wednesday August 22, 2012   -   By Rebekah

The high heat of mid-summer and the rapid cooling of the days as August got into full swing has caused a number of crops to behave as though fall is already here, and I guess, according to the weather, it is! One of these crops is...

The August Rushes in Big Changes For Our Home

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Saturday August 18, 2012   -   By Twilya

My Livie started kindergarten Friday.   I was supposed to take her, but the bus pulled up in our yard and she was so excited.   My baby girl tolerated her picture being taken and then waved goodbye.   Tom and I both had tears in our eyes....

Late Summer

Blog: Bloom Where You're Planted Farm   -   Monday August 13, 2012   -   By Teresa

Despite how terribly dry and hot it has been this summer, our pumpkins have survived and seem to have fruited pretty well.  The drought continues but the temperatures have finally cooled off so they continue to bloom and grow.  We did...

The Fruit with a Thousand Names

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Friday August 10, 2012   -   By Katie

This week I was hoping to provide you with a video tour of the gardens. But as I type this it’s raining… and has been for almost an entire day. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining! I’m grateful for the cool weather and rain. Instead of a video...

The Sweetest Rain!!

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Saturday August 04, 2012   -   By Twilya

It has been a very busy week and as I prepare for tomorrow at the Old Cheney Road Farmers Market from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. in Lincoln, Nebraska to say I am a motivated seller is an understatement.   The colors and textures are changing a...

Bees!! Yahoo!!

Blog: Moonstruck Farms   -   Tuesday July 31, 2012   -   By Rowena

As most of you know things have not been going smoothly around here, pool collapses pouring 50,000 gallons of water into greenhouse and across property (the pigs loved it!), the beds out front are now succumbing to the beginning of the critters building their...

Hot, crazy summer at Hawk Valley Garden

Blog: Hawk Valley Garden   -   Monday July 30, 2012   -   By Sue

Hello to all from Northwest Iowa... Hawk Valley Garden has survived this long, crazy summer of 2012. We planted early in May and had a decent month of rains and weather all the way to mid June. Then drought hit us and we had no rain until the...

Ears and Ears of Sweet Corn!

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Tuesday July 17, 2012   -   By Twilya

We have sweet corn running out our ears… literally.   It is cross-pollinated between Peaches & Cream and Ambrosia and it is so good.   There is a lot of sweet corn out there but do not be fooled.   Ours is better.   Livie and I...

We Are Up and Running Again

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Monday July 16, 2012   -   By Twilya

It is Monday evening and I am finally updating my online store for the week.   I am sorry for being so tardy, but today was BUSY.   Livie and I both had eye exams and I am now at that point in my life where I need bifocals.   I am not...

The Summer's Rainbow

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Saturday July 14, 2012   -   By Twilya

This week has been much calmer.   T-ball has ended for the summer and we have enjoyed a little more time at home.   Tom and I are both homebodies but I think we are raising two little socialites.   Finding the right balance is a trick at...

Fresh & Fabulous Monday!

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Monday July 09, 2012   -   By Twilya

It is Monday Morning and the rain missed us!   Neighboring counties to the east received way too much and we received barely a sprinkle.   It is cooler and for that I am grateful.  Yesterday was a very good day at the market for me and...

See You at Old Cheney!!

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...

See You in the Morning at the Old Cheney!!!!

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Saturday June 23, 2012   -   By Twilya

The past few days have been busy at L’Ecuyer Gardens.   Keeping up is proving difficult.   This week the girls have kept me running with t-ball games and swimming lessons and I have kept busy planting, picking and WEEDING.   We have had...

Caught in a Whirlwind!

Blog: L'Ecuyer Gardens   -   Wednesday June 20, 2012   -   By Twilya

This week has been a whirlwind.   We forgot that swim lessons started this week so there has been a mad dash to modify our schedule.   I nearly drowned when I was Autie’s age so for me swim lessons are mandatory.   At the pool I was able...

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...
