Chipmunks

September 10th, 2012|

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

Castrated Piglets

June 16th, 2012|

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

Pastured Piglets for Sale, VT.

June 10th, 2012|

Well it was cold and rainy all week. We did have a few lovely moments of sunshine but they were pretty fleeting and usually followed by rain, thunder, lightening, hail or all of the above. We did not necessarily lose any plants to the weather but we lost growth. The eggplant and zucchinis seem to

Mostly pictures.

It is squishy and brown here in Tinmouth. We have been seeding places that need it this week, and plan to put some peas in the ground for shoots later this week. It is so strange to not have snow and to have above freezing temperatures consistently. I'm not complaining, although it could stop raining.

Still snowless…

January 29th, 2012|

Still no snow, but it's been great for building projects. It rained/sleeted/iced thursday/friday so we spent those days inside working on our seed orders. We are using Richard Wiswall's data sheets to figure out our CSA shares and planting schedules. It took awhile but now that we have it mostly done it is such a

Win The Future with Mobile High Tunnels

January 18th, 2012|

[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
