Breezy Meadows CSA 2016 Week 6 And the wait continues.  The stork’s GPS must be malfunctioning.  Meadow and baby are not though. All the tests are coming up too positive, so the doctor pushed back inducing until next week.  It makes total sense since Meadow and her brother were 2 weeks late.  The goats are

CSA 2016 Week 4

We have a Baby!!!!(goat) This morning there was the first kidding of the second batch of ladies. These are all first timers so they should have pretty small singles this round. We were kind of hoping for Meadow to go first but its just the way the cookie crumbles. The momma was not one we

CSA Week 3

Breezy Meadows CSA 2016 Week 3 The sun is finally back out after days of cold cloudy weather.  The vegetables decided to take it slow these past few days.  With the sun and the temperature climbing I'm expecting a big jump in growth in the next few days.  The cloudy weather was nice for transplanting.

Wreath Season in Vermont

The holiday season is just around the corner.  For us that means wreath season is here.  I harvested a truckload full of balsam bows on Tuesday. Instead of cutting the trees down low, I cut them around chest height keeping a few green branches on the left over stump. Those few branches respond the the

To feed the plant you need to feed the soil.

Last summer we had a really tough time with the rice. Transplants being eaten, unfinished irrigation and lack of nutrients lead to a crop failure. During the summer we were able to help control the chipmunks and laid out our irrigation lines so those two problems should be taken care of for next year. The

First Paddy Cut and Hanging

This afternoon we had a class from Green Mountain College come out to the farm. After a quick tour around the farm we headed down to the rice paddy to do some harvesting. They didn't have much time so we only had time to cut the top paddy. It was amazing how fast the rice

Castrated Piglets

Another week has streaked by us here at Breezy Meadows. The days are still getting longer but there is never enough sunlight to get everything done. This week more then most because after a day of rice planting Meadow’s wrists gave out. It’s an old injury that flares up from time to time. She is
