Farm Happenings at Bountiful Blessings Farm

Health-Giving Garlic! (July 5, 2020)

Posted on July 5th, 2020
This year we had the best garlic harvest our farm has ever seen.  The bulbs are huge and the waste was  lest than in years past.  So what do you know about garlic, other than it’s easier to spoon it out of a jar than peel those papery skins off? I recently learned that in WWII the... read more »

The Best of Times, The Worst of Times (6/28/20)

Posted on June 28th, 2020
In Charles Dickens, A Tale of Two Cities, he begins his book with the line, “It was the best of times, it was the worst of times...” Now, I will admit to having never read the book, but what a great line to describe our spring of 2020!   Within a few short weeks, our world changed... read more »

A Budding Young Farmer (6/21/20)

Posted on June 21st, 2020
A love for farming began to grow in Caleb’s (our youngest of 5 children) heart a couple of years ago.  We were a bit surprised at first because wood working had been his passion from the time he was a little boy.  But, what joy it gives us to see him whole heartedly embracing and loving... read more »

A Day of Fun!! (6/14/20)

Posted on June 14th, 2020
The Spring rush (April & May) is always a rather intense time, and this year was worse than normal with storms and our irrigation pond draining.  But, at the end of it we always take our inters for a day of canoeing on the Buffalo River where we have floated for the last 25 years.  There... read more »

The Fast is Broken!

Posted on June 7th, 2020
In our family when the last fresh tomatoes are eaten in the fall we “Fast” until the next spring when the first tomatoes ripen.  Of course we have the occasional fresh tomato, but it is not standard fare at our house in the winter.  I usually process lots of tomatoes and for making... read more »

Giving Thanks (5/31/20)

Posted on May 31st, 2020
Giving Thanks!   The word “unprecedented” seems to be on our lips often these days!  Experiences we have never had or known before are happening all around us, and the farm is no exception. On Monday last week (25th) we were having a picnic at the pond when a surprise thunder... read more »

Please Help Us Move the Bounty (May 24,2020)

Posted on May 24th, 2020
The planting of seeds is such a miracle, as is the growth of plants.  All of a sudden we are over run with produce without enough market to move it all.  We would hate for it to go to waste when I know people could be enjoying it.  So, we are asking you to please share with your friends... read more »

Home Deliveries! (5/17/20)

Posted on May 17th, 2020
When we started home deliveries I didn't imagine how long it would take.  Nor did I realize how much I would enjoy seeing you in your own homes!  Each one from the farm who has done home deliveries has expressed how much they enjoy them.  If you are home we enjoy a short visit on the porch.... read more »

Never a Dull Moment!

Posted on May 10th, 2020
Ever have your world turned upside down? Last Sunday afternoon (3rd) at 4:27 a powerful, and to most of us very unexpected, thunderstorm hit our farm with winds of 70+ MPH. The good news is that all humans and their houses on the farm are safe; the bad news is that the chicken and vegetable houses didn’t... read more »
