Looking towards the future of our farm

This winter we will be investing in a Eco weeder II.  This will dramatically increase the size of garden we can manage.  Weeding is never ending but this should help us out.

Planting Garlic

We have been planting garlic lately that we will harvest next summer.  We have purchased our garlic from Burpee and planted these varieties Purple Glazer, Transylvania, and Spanish Roja.

Garden picture from atop grain bin

Here is a picture of our main garden from atop our grain bin.  About half of it has been rototilled but there is a bit of cleaning up to do before we can till the other half.

Other farm equipment

Here is a pic of our Massey tractor we use for a lot of things around the garden.  The other picture is of our husqvarna rototiller we use to prepare seed beds before planting.

Investing in our farm

After the great season we have had.  We are investing in our CSA's future with the purchase of this new 3pt Landpride Rototiller.
