We have already had an abundance of tomatoes, peppers and onions. I'm going to be making stewed tomatoes, spaghetti sauce and canned tomatoes with onions starting tomorrow. I can't wait. Anyone else have a lot of crop already?
I've just decided that I really enjoy blueberries. I would love to grow my own. We have several blackberry and raspberry bushes. Are blueberry bushes just as easy to maintain? How many years do they have to be in the ground to produce?
I've been in foot pain "heck" for months now. I can't walk a lot or workout. At the end of our workday (on the farm) I can barely tolerate the pain. I went to a podiatrist and he diagnosed me with bone spurs and plantar fasciitis. Anyone had either? How did you deal?
We tried growing gourds this year. I took last years gourds and threw them in a big pile of dirt in the corner of the yard (on the bank by the crick). If they were going to grow, when would they have started? I tossed them there last fall.
Seriously our temperatures were in the high 60s last week. Yesterday it was 68! Tonight through Friday morning we are under a winter storm warning. We could see 6 to 8 inches of snow. I say, what the heck Mother Nature!
We sell both ways here, by the animal or we get it butchered and sell the meat too. With Easter right around the corner we have been super busy with selling fresh hams. I notice the same around Christmas with ham or prime rib.
Is anyone paying attention to NY and Governor Cuomo? What the heck is going to happen? Why give false information to the federal authorities. I don't know what to believe anymore. I listened to him daily for months when he was giving his daily pandemic briefings.
Anyone from the Northeast and started your seeds yet? How many do you actually start inside? We do start a few but most times we buy plants from the Amish family. I think we are going to start more seeds this year.
We have eight pigs and one of them just started acting all aggressive. I would say it's been happening for a week now. We did just add three, we had five. The aggressive pig was one of the original ones. He isn't hurting the others but I feel like he is "pushy" and he tries to show us who the...
My young child is now infatuated with birds (watching them). She watches them at my parents. We don't have bird feeders up but we are planning on it. I rarely notice birds around here in the winter and honestly I'm clueless when it comes to birds. I'm going to put out suet feeders today (my...
So I had a list of small power tools to buy and I thought I did good. When my husband opened them he laughed! I bought the ones that didn't come with batteries! Why in carnation would they sell tools without the battery - especially if they are cordless power tools?
If there was ever a year we need more smiles and cheer, it's this year. I usually take our real tree down and out right after Christmas. This year we decided to leave it up until 2021. It's beautiful so why not enjoy it longer.
