Here are some photos of our fruit orchard planting. They work both as a grand statement as you enter the Procter campus, and soon enough, the bearers of tasty fruit! 90 apple trees in 3 varieties (Honeycrisp, Golden Delicious, & Zestar) line...

 We installed a wood stove in our seedling house today. Holding 70 degrees at this point. More testing to come. I will keep you posted on how it works. This is something new for us. The house measures 22X24.

Hugelkultur on a Micro-Farm

Blog: Arcadia Farms   -   Tuesday December 04, 2012   -   By Katie

If you’ve been following this blog for a while, you know that we’re planning to double the size of our market garden this coming spring. The plan is to have one or two volunteer days in the spring where we can build raised bed frames, move compost from...

Fall Update

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Wednesday October 05, 2011   -   By Larry

It was a great harvest this year.  It wasn't our best, but better than last year.  The hot weather really concentrated the sugars, so it should be a good vintage.  The yeast is almost done doing it's magic to convert sugar to alcohol.   ...

May Showers

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Saturday May 21, 2011   -   By Larry

It's been a rather rainy and cool May.  The vines are looking good, but we've had to use fungicide rather early in the year.  We fertilized and are spraying for phylloxera as well.  It's all just general maintenance to ensure a healthy vineyard...

April Showers Bring Great Wines

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Sunday April 10, 2011   -   By Larry

After a long, nasty winter, spring has arrived.  We've had great weather for working in the vineyard the last few days.  The Catawba are starting to get their leaves.  This is a nervous time for us as we hope the temperatures stay above...

Marching Toward Spring

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Saturday March 12, 2011   -   By Larry

Lots of pruning going on in the vineyard.  The Catawba had a lot of frost damage from 2008 to clean up.  We are definitely going to fertilize, boron and love these guys back to good health.  They should have a much better harvest if the weather...

Pruning Season

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Sunday February 20, 2011   -   By Larry

We survived the blizzard of 2011.  Seymour got sleet more than anything.  All the snow and sleet are gone and we are in the vineyard pruning.  The mechanical pruner is doing a great job.  It really speeds things up for us.   Our St....

Old Man Winter

Blog: Whispering Oaks Vineyard and Winery   -   Saturday January 22, 2011   -   By Larry

Old Man Winter is here and he seems to be staying for a spell.  The snow blanketing the vineyard is beautiful. We're testing out our newly created mechanical pruner.  The first trial looks great.  This will really help us manage the vineyard...

I have been a bit negligent in my blogging.  It's been a very busy late fall and early winter.  The new bottles from A Glass Container are wonderful!  We love them.  I am pondering getting some of their jars for home canning.  Jelly...

My Tree Spirits: Bruce, Abner, and Ralph

Blog: Morgan Botanicals   -   Wednesday January 13, 2010   -   By Jessica

Amongst our yard live three of the strongest souls I know: My tree spirits, Bruce, Abner, and Ralph. Our trees live in what is called "The Avenue of Faces" which is a row of several dozen carved trees and stumps in and across the street from City...

Ground Chuck Wood Hog

Blog: Hurricane Farm   -   Wednesday February 18, 2009   -   By Chris

For some reason, I used to always confuse the two terms "wood chuck" and "ground hog."  So now I've taken to calling them "Wood Hogs" or "Ground Chucks" just for the fun of it.  While clearing out some nasty...
