After only 4 days in the ground the kenaf is coming up! This is one of the new, unique and obscure crops we are growing this year at the patch. It should get 15-20’ tall and make for a unique “jungle” path out here for you and the kids to explore this fall. Keep an eye on this one….it’s going to be fun!

Sometimes when you take a chance on a pile of dirty old bags on an online auction you strike gold! I’m giddier than an 8 year old on Christmas morning digging through this pile! The history here; my goodness! Do you farmers, who have been doing this longer than I, have any stories about these companies/varieties? Does your soul ache for a time when small family owned seed house dotted the countryside and we were allowed to plant VNS soybeans?! Anyway, Im going to be flying high over this find for a while and I can’t wait to find a way to preserve and display this collection of farming history here at the patch!

While not part of the “public” part of our farm, who would like our next Sunday Summer update to come to you from our family garden and have Christie show us how she finds peace and provides for our family from this special space?

We are kicking off our Sunday Farm Updates Series: Each Sunday we plan to post a video of the happenings here at the farm as we work our way toward pumpkin season. Hope you can follow along!

Please comment with questions and suggestions of what you would like to see.

These boys just finished mowing, raking, debating the weather forecast, and baling their first 35 bales of hay…..all without dad’s help and using their own line of hay equipment. It’s a successful trial run as they plan to bale all the straw we will sell at the patch this fall. I’m not sure who is more proud, them or I!

Watching our crops emerge…especially in challenging conditions….is absolutely amazing!

So the back story: we planted some of our corn and soybeans (for the “main” farm) last week which was followed by the heavy rain and cold and now baking heat. This is a perfect recipe to turn our nice fluffy soil into concrete….which it did. Not what we had hoped for! Then the seeds have to push through something that resembles a parking lot while we would prefer them to meet the world in potting soil. We have been checking daily to determine if/how much we will need to replant but it just amazes me the lengths nature goes to to try and get these seeds out of the ground. May we all have this same persistence in challenging situations!

If pumpkin season started today these guys would be ready…..albeit they would have no pumpkins to sell!

Regardless, we are making use of this crummy weather to get the shed ready. Next week, hopefully, the focus will shift to outside preparations!

Friends, we need your opinion:

We are considering expanding our kids play area to include a larger straw fort but we are running into a pretty substantial cost to do so. To help make it feasible, we are throwing around the idea of charging for you all to use it (we are thinking $3 per child...adults free). We have been very hesitant to charge any type of admission and, to be clear, this would just be for the kids play area in the hoop barn (which includes the corn bin), the farm and everything else would remain admission free.

So, my question to you all is would you be willing to pay to allow me to build a straw castle for our kids or should we chaff the idea and stay with the way things are?

And, GO!

Have you seen the picturesque sunny day pictures all over FB of the farmers getting their crop in?

…….Yeah, me neither…..

We did get the popcorn and first planting of ornamental corn in this afternoon…rained on us the entire time!

We are up for the challenge if you are up for the reward. Follow along to see how this turns out…..

Just admire the lengths of beauty and complexity God goes to in order to make an apple. He doesn’t have to…but He does. You are orders of magnitude more important than an apple and no less beautiful. Let that sink in today

I have tried, unsuccessfully, the past five years to grow a portion of our pumpkins on a covercrop. After tweaking things based on what I have learned from my failures, this is attempt #6. These are oats planted in between what will eventually be the pumpkin rows. The thought is to plant the pumpkins in the bare space between the oats and then kill the oats to provide a straw mulch for the pumpkin vines to set their pumpkins on. We will see….I really would like this to work!

Look at ‘em tentacles!

EDIT TO ADD…..some truth about asparagus… we will not be harvesting from our new patch until 2024. Asparagus is a long term investment that needs two years to establish itself before it can be harvested. After that it should produce for at least a decade. Stick with us….the wait should be worth it!

We just drove by and Oh My Goodness! Pumpkin Patch and parking are full, full, full! It must be prime pumpkin picking weather.
