Wild-eyed agriculture in the mighty Rogue Valley

Spent a little more time getting this animation code dialed in:

Seldom have we been planting the main season crops so close to the solstice but at least I'm getting them in a little before that. 100 tomato plants in this morning, 36 mixed squash and a couple dozen watermelon plants too. I also pushed in about 500 feet of our customer's favorite the Incredible sweet corn.This

Busy, busy! Soil prepped for corn seed and first transplantings but waiting now for the irrigation ditch to be filled. Maybe a week, 2 tops from history and rumors of how much work the irrigation district has done.This is our 30th year! have I mentioned this yet?Splendid spring to you all!

What a strange spring we are having! Rain, rain, rain. I'm behind in the nursery work this year. I'd say again but last year I was way ahead of this year's schedule. I'm also staring down the business end of a carburetor rebuild for dad's little Farmall Cub which I have sort of developed a mental block against. And my bro i

Tomato plants are a couple inches tall in the sprout room and the small greenhouse is prepared to receive them tho I still have some clean-up to do in there. Gotta get the seed order out this week, it's getting late with less than a month of winter left. There's been some snow in the hills but we're short of water. Nothing

It's still above 95 out there so I've taken a little time after dinner to flop down in the dark, cool basement. The season is finally starting to shape up. All the crops are dialed in so we'll have at least a little of all of our mainline products with at least 2 plantings of each variety. A few weeks ago I was on the verge

Every few years I like to try a new endeavor on the farm. Last year it was beneficial herbs and teas. I even managed to get a tea Camilla which is still doing well. But last year was a pretty tough solo mission for the Guyman and I just barely managed to end up harvesting some miserly little piles and bags of leaf and flowe

Having such a great day. Started out kinda down but once the fog blew off and the sun warmed things up I really started going. Pruned a bunch on the apple trees and worked on cleaning out the pond. If the rain doesn't come too soon I might just get it lined in time to have some water put away for the dry part of spring. Hop

We've had a bit over a week of hard frost now. Great for killing garden insects but not great for outdoor activity. Our highest daytime temps have been around 36°F. Low nighttime temps have been 20-26. Sadly I've also hit a patch of 'writers block' with my software design work. So turning my mind

Gotta love it! Been inside so much I've finally had time to write something on here. Fall cleanup is still majorly under way. Turning to the dusty confines of the basement and the winter greenhouse for places to put stuff as revamping the house for Xmas continues. Will post some pics when we're done decorating

teetering on the top of the orchard ladder as the last rays of twilight silhouette branches of the yellow delicious apple tree. Picking apples by feel from the spindly, gnarly, gnobby branches. Yes, autumn is upon us.  We'll be out of sweet corn for about a week, until the weekend or

We'll be laboring on this fine Labor Day.Corn, melon, tomatoes, squash, cukes, grapes, apples, plums, peaches, potatoes, onions and maybe even some green beans in stock today.I should be out picking corn already but the puppy sleeping on my lap is slowing me down.Y'all take care and have

My poor, sad, ol' blog has all but withered under Ra's Blazing Eye. Like one of my pumpkins being sucked dry by Coreidae. Well, your loss has been the cantaloupe's gain. We've begun to harvest some really great melons and this evening I [fina

My mom's 75th birthday is today and she'll be celebrating it in Kansas with her brothers and sister. Hope you have a super great time, Mom. You deserve it.

2nd planting of corn put in today. Boy was it hot! Being a miser with an inflatable swimming pool (thanks Todd & Robin!) full of water for my little lettuce and cabbage plants. I sure hope I don't use it all up before the polywogs get their legs. The big greenhouse has some great looking bean, tomato, cuke, squash, cant

what a delightful morning. Rotten night's sleep but a delightful morning. Sparky's asleep in my lap, warm cup of tea at my elbow. I can hear mom snoring and a few roosters still crowing. There's some lovely sunshine out there but even though I've got so much

Just filled the bird feeders and we have quite a flock in the yard.The greenhouse is filling up quickly with lots of little plants. Hundreds of tomatoes already putting on dark green growth and a big flush of new herbs and interesting flowers. Still waiting on a bundle of new plants to come in; they won't ship u

Rototilled our 1st two late winter/early spring garden plots this afternoon. Hoozah! Really nice to get the tractor out under the open sky and a bright yellow sun. Mom and I also managed a supply run to Medford this morning. Lunch at Tintin buffet. Just all around a great day. All is lined up to start planting lettuce,

25°F out there this morning. 42 in the greenhouse with 2 heaters running. Have reached about 1000 plants in there, another 400+ seeded in and kept warm in the sprouting room downstairs. I'm planning on trying to inflate the big greenhouse in the next 10 days, start getting it ready for more transplants plus early tomatoes,

Well, my cold decided to hang around some more & I didn't get the floating row cover down, darn it. Did manage a few baby steps on my job scheduling app though, that was nice. Hope you had a good Tuesday.

I've been having a challenging morning but making a little progress despite the struggle. Alas not on the greenhouse, that'll wait until this afternoon. But cleanup is going well now that equipment is cooperating. A tiny bit of sun is showing through the winter haze.
