Amazing Katahdins

Sunday, June 16th, 2013

Winter Activities

Saturday, February 4th, 2012

Just as the summer was unusual, so is our winter. On this early February day I look out the window and see the free range chickens enjoying some still-green grass. They have continued to lay better than usual for winter. The ducks are laying very well also. About half the ewes […]

An Amazing Fall Harvest

Saturday, November 26th, 2011

Spring was wet with accompanying disease problems in the tomatoes. We had plenty of lettuce and cool season crops though. Summer was extremely hot and dry so there were no beans and the heirloom tomaotes did not fruit. The hybrid “4th of July” tomato did get over the effects of the wet […]
