Farm Report

Welcome to a photo farm log.  I’m your host, the farmer.  Things have been kinda all over the place around here and I’m not sure where to start, so I’ll just walk y’all through some pictures and insert commentary where ever I so desire. I broke my first broadfork handle the other day.  Then I … Continue reading »

Thirteen Weeks and Counting

We’ve been busy. It’s been raining. Food’s been growing. It’s been good.  Last week, we brought three varieties of cucumbers to Hull Park. I thought we’d have zucchini out of our ears by now, but I think cucumbers are the mainstay at the moment. We decided to offer green tomatoes for any of our members … Continue reading »

we don’t sell vegetables

Thinking and working.  Working and thinking.  No Ipod today.  No farming podcasts or techno mixes, just thinking.  One of the things I’ve been thinking about is how grateful I am for our farm’s members.  I may have had a tear running down my cheek but I was sweating so much that I can’t be sure.  … Continue reading »

Oh What a Tangled Web We Weave

I’ve been deep in our tomato jungle lately.  I’m really liking our tomato weave, it’s working very well.  Some plants are doing better than others.  Some areas of some rows are doing better than other areas.  I think that the plants that are stunted and weak are in areas of low soil fertility.  The plants … Continue reading »

week twelve

The farmer headed to the park early this morning, while Bull Frog and I stayed home to prepare for my sister’s arrival this afternoon. We’re excited to have her visit this weekend. It’s been very wet here on the farm this week and if vegetables are an indicator of the changing season, then the season is definitely … Continue reading »

Poultry-A Healthy Alternative to Soap Operas

Chickens are incredibly entertaining.  Back when I was an urban farmer that was not exactly why I got my first flock but ever since I have always enjoyed simply watching the birds go about their activities and interactions.  Melissa and I constantly find our selves discussing various sorts of chicken drama. “Who’s going broody ?”, (sometimes … Continue reading »

Mother’s Day

    In honor of Mother’s Day, we’d like to share all of the new mamas here on the farm. We continuously find new chicken nests and today, I discovered where Brant’s been hiding her kittens. She certainly didn’t lead me to them, but after some deductive reasoning, I discovered her litter of 4, in … Continue reading »

Week #11

It’s been quite a week here on the farm. Bull Frog and I took a mini vacation for a couple days on Tybee Island and enjoyed the brief getaway, while the goats and chickens kept The Farmer company. Bull Frog had never been to the beach and it was about time. You’d have thought he was born there. When … Continue reading »
