Farm Happenings for April 15, 2021

We're just about finished harvesting our over-wintered... read more »

It's March 9th and we are in the driest spell since last October! What a wet and full-of-rot Winter it's been. (All that moisture killed thousands of Salad and Lettuce plants...)

Plus - the extended forecast for the next couple of weeks is DRY and WARM. We have a new spring in our step today because of this. Bring it on, we say! (And then, please, may... read more »

Seeding & Drying Out!
