You start to feel a bit “peckish”(pun intended) from inhaling all the delicious smells wafting…

The Farm Fresh Egg Experience

Has anyone ever told you that a farm fresh egg is like the gateway drug to buying local? Okay, maybe that’s just my opinion!

After a week and a half of daily rain that dropped about 7.5”, it has finally dried up enough to get back into the fields and get some cover crop planted. This 1.2 acre plot is going to be a trial plot for us next season with roll kill rye.
My goal is to seed this plot very dense to winter rye, allow it to establish itself this season before the cold weather puts it into dormancy, then in spring when the days start getting longer and the snow melts away it should come back into its growth cycle and grow to about 5’ tall.
It should reach full height around May; at that point I will use a roller crimper to roll it down and kill it off before it can create seed. This will give this plot the affect of having a dense layer of straw spread all over the ground that we can plant into.
We will be trialing winter squash in this plot for 2019 and if all goes well we will repeat in other areas of the Farm for other crops!

Sweet potatoes are coming in out of the field! It looks like it’s going to be a good year for them. Very few small ones and not too many jumbos! Nice useable size potatoes!
We are harvesting an average of 9 of these crates per row, some rows 12 crates! This pallet represents about 500# of sweet potatoes and we only pulled three of 12 rows!
