Farm Happenings for September 18, 2019

Posted on September 15th, 2019
I know in the last couple of emails I have said how it is really feeling like Fall but.. I take it back except that the days are definitely getting shorter!  ThLast week was awful warm and humid for this time of year and it looks like the forecast for next week is predicting the same.  While... read more »

It is definitely starting to feel like Fall!  I went out to Ledges State Park on a hike this morning and really started to notice the leaves changing color.  I also noticed a few trees dropping their leaves while still green.  This is a sign that the trees are stressed out and are dropping... read more »

It's really starting to feel like Fall as the nights are getting longer, the leaves are starting to change color and I saw my first small Pod (flock) of Brown Pelicans at Saylorville Lake today!  But it still feels like the beginning of Summer based on what we are harvesting now, so I feel all confused... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 28, 2019

Posted on August 25th, 2019
It's hard for me to believe that August has almost ended as I don't pay attention to the calendar much and in past seasons have been able to know what month it is from what we are harvesting!  But this season, with the later than planned plantings of Summer Crops because of the wet Spring, we are... read more »

We got a welcomed 1.5 inches of rain today (8/18) at the Farm.  It's been awhile since we've had a good soaking rain so it is much appreciated!  We are lucky to have the ability to irrigate but there are some great things rain brings (nutrients, cooler temperatures, etc) so it is nice to get... read more »

It's officially State Fair time!  At market last Saturday it was very obvious as there was a larger crowd than normal and a lot of people wanting to take pictures of our booth ; ).  Still hard for me to believe that it's State Fair time as the temperatures make it feel more Fall like than mid-August! This... read more »

Farm Happenings for August 7, 2019

Last week was an extraordinarily busy week at the Farm because we had a couple extra things on our "plate".  The first thing was our annual Organic Inspection last Tuesday.  I'm very proud to be a Certified Organic Farmer/Farm and take it very seriously!  I'm known for taking it so seriously... read more »

Farm Happenings for July 31, 2019

It seems like in the recent past we were just starting to plant the first seeds and plants into the ground in between rains.  Now, I'm seeing signs up advertising that the State Fair is just a week or so away!  Not sure how you all are feeling right now, but it seems to me like the Summer is... read more »

Farm Happenings for July 24, 2019

Hopefully everyone made it threw yesterday's storms with minimal damage.  Over the course of a couple hours the Farm received 2 inches of rain and heavy winds!  Here we didn't experience any damage besides some newly seeded beds getting washed out and some tomato cages that got blown over.   For... read more »
