Winter is hanging on

Blog: Wild Things Farm   -   Monday March 24, 2014   -   By Terry

Okay, so March 20 was officially the first day of Spring. There were a few days of nice, sunny, spring-like weather BUT winter has not quite let go yet. With nighttime temps at 24 degrees last night, about the same tonight and even colder tomorrow night, I'm...

With 18 inches of snow still tumbling from the skies and sliding off the barn roof in mid-May this year, it’s been my grumble that we sure ought to have earned a late autumn.  We had a nip of frost during that cold and drizzly week in July,...

Winter Strawberries

Blog: Red Ridge Farms   -   Friday February 08, 2013   -   By Jim & Ami

Last week, I headed out to the high tunnels to check on the progress of a few new crops, because I was concerned their immature leaves were too young to survive the frigid temperatures we were experiencing.   The quiet air was punctuated by the crunch...

Blog: Four Country Gals   -   Sunday March 11, 2012   -   By Shari

The week began with lambs on the ground. The bad news is that after nearly round-the-clock efforts, we lost both twins. Mama ewe (named Charcoal) never dropped her milk, even though her bag was about to burst. First thing Monday, Bev and Cindy had to take Mom...

Blog: Kinsman Farm   -   Friday April 22, 2011   -   By Valerie

Dew on the grass has lately seemed more like flood on the grass. We have had many rainy and cloudy days this month. And of course cool days. I am thankful for our high tunnels and low tunnels. This last November we tried something new with low tunnels. ...

What's it's going to be...winter or spring?

Blog: Avalon Farms Premium Homegrown   -   Thursday April 21, 2011   -   By Brigette

Well here it is, mid April, and we just had a couple inches of snow. Can't believe it. Temperatures are running so far below normal that we are still up every night to fill the wood burner so that the tomatoes don't get cold. To add insult to injury, most days...

One season ends another begins

Blog: Miolea Organic Farm   -   Wednesday September 29, 2010   -   By Brian

I count myself fortunate to be able to experience the change in seasons.  Not that there is anything wrong with living in a mono-climate but, a change in seasons thrusts you into changing or makes a difference that has you either looking forward to...
