Farm Update Holidays 2023

Merry Christmas and soon a Happy New Year! I hope you all have had a great fall and are looking forward to winter, spring, and then next summer season. Projects on the farm are slowly getting done, as the weather has been on the interesting side. More recently, we had over 6 inches of rain. […]

We have once again reached the end of another season. Seems like it was January just a few days ago, June a day or so later, and then another couple more and here we are. Strange pace for the year, I suppose, but it is what it is. This weekend, Columbus Day weekend, will be […]

Farm Update 09-28-23

If it wasn’t about the time I normally finish for the season it certainly would be after this week. The temps here on the farm dropped as low as 30F, with the temps remaining below the freeze line for more than 3 hours on Wednesday morning, and it’s looking like the same as I write […]

Farm Update 09-21-23

Well, what was expected last week showed up with a vengeance this week. Not only did the temps drop on Wednesday (9/20) to the point where there was a solid frost, with a low temperature of 34.5F, but the follow up this morning (9/21) dropped the temp to 32F. Needless to say, this does not […]

Farm Update 09-14-23

Hope everyone has been enjoying the warmer conditions we’ve been having since Labor Day, as the long-range forecast is showing the approaching decline in temps. Luckily, we’ve managed to avoid the mild, patchy frost event that happens all too often this time of year. Make no mistake though, fall is here, and the trees are […]

Welcome to fall, or at least welcome to the post-Labor Day time of year. I hope everyone had a great time this summer, and despite the weather was able to get in all the fun activities you wanted. Here on the farm, the work is now quickly shifting over to the fall schedule. As was […]

Farm Update 08-31-23

The end of summer holiday is here, although honestly it doesn’t mean a whole lot to me, as the work on the farm will continue just the same even after it comes and goes. Still, it does mark a shift in focus, and of course, for families it means the kids return to school. As […]

Farm Update 08-24-23

Another week closer to the end of summer, and as if to make the point I have the last of the Pennsylvania Peaches for this season. While the seasons change, work on the farm continues as it does. In the field, the rains that we had last week finally did what I hoped wouldn’t happen […]

Farm Update 08-17-23

As seems to be the case this year, the time is absolutely flying by, and we are now halfway through August. This means I will soon be shifting into more of a fall mode, and moving my attention to the later season crops. Additionally, the weather continues to misbehave, and the rains, while already having […]

Farm Update 08-10-23

Big news this week, Local Apples have started, and I was able to get some. There’s more that’s gone on, but since so many people wait for the Apples I figured I could probably have just posted that one line and it would have been fine for the entire update. While it’s tempting, there are […]
