The Beginning Of Spring?

We are at a the cross roads of a major shift in the seaons. Winter has gained a strong foothold these past few months. Sending down wave after wave of arctic cold with and scattered but significant snow. With such a strong front line the newly awakened Spring doesn't seem to have much of a

We've updated the information on our page. This will be our third year offering the CSA and we have certainly learned a lot. We still will be offering delivery for the Tinmouth and Middletown Springs area.

Trashing the Trash

[singlepic id=242 w=320 h=240 float=right] Plastic is everywhere on the modern farm. We have two high tunnels and a greenhouse that are covered in plastic. The high tunnel plastic will stay on the tunnels for 5 or 6 years then will be used for winter protection on low tunnels for a few more years. The

Chipmunks! You think their just so cute don't you? I mean who wouldn't. With their fluffy tails, big puffy cheeks, and their spunky attitude. Last year I would have agreed with you. Meadow was slightly annoyed with them because they got to her sunflower seed heads before she could. This past winter was a warm

Win The Future with Mobile High Tunnels

[singlepic id=216 w=320 h=240 float=center] I talked about bending the pipe in a previous post(here) and now I'll go over how we did the rest of the tunnel. I designed the tunnel based on the professional manufactured tunnels from a few different companies. SketchUp helped a lot and I would recommend folks who are designing

Seed Catalogue Seduction

First week of June. Time to plant. Back in the winter I pored over seed catalogues, drooling at the variety of potential available to me. If you're not careful with those catalogues, you may find yourself over indulging in what your eyes want but what your land and time management just can't contain. The herb

New HugelBeets

[singlepic id=60 w=320 h=240 float=right]Finally the sun has been shinning long enough for the ground to dry out and for us to start building another round of hugelbeets. Last year we built 7 45 foot long beds which are now growing different greens, peas and onions. We have plans to do 3 more 45 ft

The summer of 2009 I became very interested in aquaponics. Aquaponics is the combining of aquaculture(growing fish or other water based animal) and hydroponics(growing plants in a medium other than soil and providing nutrients through a liquid solution). Aquaponics is a significant improvement on these two separate systems. Both aquaculture and hydroponics have a major

Crop Planning and Seed Ordering

I placed our Fedco seed order this week. It is certainly a challenge trying to figure out what we are going to grow. Then figuring out how much we are going to grow. Then figuring out how many seeds need to be ordered to achieve this. Last year I was much less organized with my
