March/April Update

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Friday April 01, 2011   -   By Colvin Farm

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Friday December 10, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

With the temperature hovering in the mid teens over the past week, the 2010 growing season is officially over! Offseasons are great for regrouping, making new plans/goals, and catching up on farm maintenance (or in this specific case catching up on...

Colvin Family Farm--Week 18

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Wednesday September 08, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

We've had a delicious taste of Fall over the past week--definitely my favorite season, Fall is refreshingly crisp, cool, sweet smelling--I look forward to it coming in full strength later this month (I can't believe that it's already September)! When...

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Saturday August 21, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

Hello everybody! It has been a great week! We thoroughly enjoyed seeing my brother Matt as he was in on leave prepatory to being deployed for three years, and the 26 year old "bach" brought a quite charming girlfriend to meet the family as...

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Wednesday August 11, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

Sorry to all you blog readers that I didn't get this up last week!   It's been another long, hot, dry week on the mountain--we've been busy getting all of the Fall crops in, and we're trying to hold down the fort watering! I hope you all enjoy...

Week 11

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Friday July 09, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

Well, flitter---the power just flickered and I lost everything, but just the same I'm as tickled as can be! We are in the middle of a rain storm that's already dumped more than an inch on our farm! That is a huge load off of my mind as we've been...

Colvin Family Farm May 13th-19th--Ninth Week

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Friday June 18, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

We had 40 folks out to the farm yesterday for our first CSA shareholder day ever--we did have a list of activities planned, but we spent so much time touring the main field that we didn't have time for the games! Mom did teach interested folks how to do...

Colvin Family Farm May 30th-June 5th--fifth week

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Friday June 04, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

As I type this, I've been run indoors by the rain--it's a nice gentle rain, but there's certainly enough that we had to get in out of it. I'm going to put together the newsletter, while Caleb and Isaac work on washing and drying the Spinach that we were...

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Friday May 28, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

Hello everybody! As usual on our farm we've had a busy week full of mundane things that we do every day of the week--along with a double handful of things that have never happened before (just enough to keep us hooked on farming)--It is fun to watch the...

Colvin Family Farm--May 16-22

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Friday May 21, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

Again, I'm late getting this out--by the time you all read this you have probably already seen us at market. Because it is so late, this will probably be one of the most "thrown together" newsletters yet as there are hundreds of little things...

Colvin Family Farm--May 9th-15th

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Friday May 14, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

Hello Everybody! I tried to get this out yesterday, but our trusty "old faithful" laptop up and died on us in the middle of creating it. So, I am now creating this on our new Dell Inspiron Desktop computer. It is about as much better than our...

This Week At Colvin Family Farm

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Thursday May 06, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

Howdy everybody! I hope that you all will forgive me for putting all of these pictures in here, but I "got happy" with this new DSL Internet connection, and I really wanted you all to be able to "see" how the farm looks right now!...

Late April Update

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Wednesday May 05, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

I was tickled early one morning last week to be able to catch this picture of a Blue Heron wading through the edge of our pond! We don't normally have waterbirds land in our small pond, although we've had wild ducks, Canadian geese etc.. before. This...

April At Colvin Family Farm

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Saturday April 10, 2010   -   By Colvin Farm

Over the past month we've just about got all of our tillable land worked over for the first time! It is necessary to work in your cover crop well enough in advance of putting in your main crop so that it will compost and add all of the nutrients that give...

This Week At Colvin Family Farm

Blog: Colvin Family Farm   -   Wednesday December 16, 2009   -   By Colvin Farm

  It has begun—Mud Season. Thick mud, thin mud, sloppy mud, sticky mud, slick mud—mud of all types, loved by little boys, hated by moms (that is an understatement) tolerated by men (what can we do about it?)—Mud.   I remember a book that my...
