Farm Update 10-10-19

Well, the final weekend of the 2019 season is upon us. I hope most of you got to take in the foliage over the last two weeks, as it’s mostly done here now (at least in most of the Jewett valley) With Halloween approaching, don’t forget to pick up a nice carving pumpkin, or grab […]

Farm Update 10-03-19

The end of the season is rapidly approaching. Just these last two weeks to go, and probably not a bit too soon, given the forecast temp for Friday night/Saturday morning is 31F. I fully expect it to be the usual 5 – 7 degrees colder here than whatever the forecast predicts. The effects of the […]

Farm Update 09-26-19

There’s good news, and there’s bad news (and this news isn’t related to the farm, so don’t worry). The good news is, as a result of the very early freeze we had last week, the leaves are turning, and they are beautiful colors. The bad news is, at the rate they are turning and falling […]

Farm Update 09-20-19

30.6F… It took me a minute to process that number when I saw it on Thursday morning. 30.6F on Sept 19th. Not much better this morning either, with the weather station currently showing 32.7F. My apologies this update didn’t come out yesterday, but I got a little sidetracked. It took me a little longer than […]

Farm Update 09-12-19

I think this will be a very short update this week, as I don’t have much of anything new to pass along, other than the schedule change for the fall. The weather, despite the random odd day, has cooled off considerably, and even to the point that there is a small possibility of frost tonight. […]

Farm Update 09-04-19

Labor Day is here and gone, and I can hardly believe it. As strange as this may sound, it went too quick. Ah well, such is the way of the world. Now to move onto the fall work, and then get ready to put things to bed for the winter. Apples, more specifically Local Apples […]

Farm Update 08-28-19

Labor Day weekend is here, whether we’re ready for it or not. I suppose I am, though there is still so much to be done. Despite the very low temps we had last week, 37F according to the weather station here on the farm, there was no smell of fall in the air. I think […]

Farm Update 08-21-19

The summer is just flying by, and it certainly doesn’t seem to want to slow down at all. I hope everyone has been having a good and restful time. When I head to the wholesale market I can see there are lots of people on the move, not to mention that the stand is busier […]

Farm Update 08-14-19

Can you believe I actually managed to get this update done ahead of time. Well, not really ahead of time, because they come out whenever I decide to do them, but you know what I mean. Besides, it doesn’t mean I’m caught up with all of the work that was backlogged, but that’s a whole […]

Farm Update 08-08-19

Almost forgot to do the update this week, and was getting ready to go back out to work, so this will be a quite short update. For the most part things are still chugging along, and the usual routine being, well, the usual routine. There are some issues as well, mainly due to weather and […]
