We are getting really excited looking at the extended forecast with potential rain and a temperature drop back to "normal" temperatures for this time of the year in the upcoming week.  The Crew has been coming in at 6am (or earlier)  this last week to "beet" the heat and get work done before... read more »

Well, I thought last year was an "abnormal" year for so many reasons and this year is "abnormal" in it's own different ways.  This season started off like any other season with me doing the first greenhouse seeds on my own (beginning Mid-March).  Usually during this time I am also beginning... read more »

It's hard to believe but this is the Final Regular Season Share delivery for 2020.  This will definitely be a season that I never forget!  I can honestly say this has been the most challenging year we've ever had at the Farm and I'm sure it's been a challenging year for all of you as well!

Well, the Farm got nipped by a little frost on Friday and Sunday of last week.  The average/normal first frost date for us here in Central Iowa is typically around October 15th.  Like we've all experienced, there has been nothing really average and/or normal about this year : ). We were able... read more »
