2016 CSA Week 8

July 21st, 2016|

Sleep, eat, poop, sleep eat, poop, sleep, eat repeat for 2 weeks.  Thats the life of a newborn.  Its pretty good living if you can get it.  Meadow was on a very similar pattern for the first week.  We are now settling into longer periods of sleeping with longer periods of being awake.  We have

2016 CSA Week 7

July 14th, 2016|

Our newest team member has finally arrived.  Miss Emmaline Azalea Squier was born at 12:40 on Saturday morning.  We went in around 5:30 on friday morning.  I had enough time to do the normal morning chores, but we had to call in reinforcements for milking.  Besides being too long for meadow’s taste it went really

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

2016 CSA week 5

June 30th, 2016|

We are in week number 5 of the CSA and day number 4 passed Meadow’s due date. She is still doing way too much but now it’s in an effort to jostle the baby loose, but that little thing refuses to let go.  All the tests are showing up really good so we won’t be

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. 

CSA Week 2

June 9th, 2016|

Another week and more stuff is going in the ground and popping up to be harvested.  The peas have a bouquet of flowers getting ready to explode with their sweet pods.  Our early potatoes are looking pretty good and with luck we should be able to work out a week of new potatoes and peas

2016 CSA Week 1

June 2nd, 2016|

May has flown by for us but we are ready for our first week of CSA shares with lots of greens to help us transition from spring to summer.  We had an easier time getting out earlier stuff this spring with more open land ready to be planted and the new greenhouse we built

  • Balsam Bows In Truck

Wreath Season in Vermont

November 25th, 2015|

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

As we say goodbye to this fall's round of piglets we are saying hello to two new little ladies. Doris and Francesca are our next generation of sows. They are just little gilts now but by spring they will be big enough for breeding. D & F are little sisters to the sows we have
