Wondering about the instincts of animals, including ours, as we exist in the natural world. How do we push the thin ice in growing vegetables in Maine. Should we? I just made some ruts in the field with the tractor. This doesn’t feel like good stewardship. And, like the animal, I made it to the other side. #threeseasonfarming vs #fourseasonfarming ?

Before & after chilly weather prep! This is a demonstration of one of our seasonal system upgrades. We just bent a few pieces of .5-inch conduit with our hoop bender from @johnnys_seeds , strung up some rope (playing the role of purlin), covered the hoops with 3-mil plastic, and then secured the plastic with clips, which also allow us to lift the plastic and allow for airflow on warmer days. Non-permanent infrastructure for the win! 👍🌱 #fourseasonfarming #farmsmallfarmsmart #smallfarmsforbigchange #miltonga #georgiagrown #localfood #smallfarm #overwinter #fieldprep #cropmaintenance #yearroundfarming #YoungAmericanFarmers

A portrait of a farm caught off guard by winter's sudden onslaught. 7+ inches of snow, days without sunshine or temps above freezing. Today we are grateful for that big light in the sky. We brushed snow off carrot beds this morning so they would have a chance to melt out in the mid-30s temps, and now we get to harvesting! Our fingers will ache, but these snowy carrots will be unbelievably sweet, and well worth the trouble.

Winter still has its beauty! We have had harsh winter temps here lately, even down to -11 wind chill and 1 degree actual. That doesn't stop us though! We grow all year, without heat and fossil fuels! Even when the temps start to really sink down, we will still continue to provide fresh, beautiful produce like this (week 2 of our Winter CSA) produce here and more! We sold out of 200 Spring shares in one week! We are now opening up 50 more shares to help meet demand and due to the influx of small shares vs. Md. and Lg (to meet our 2019 budget). REGISTRATION CLOSES DEC. 1ST! Go to our website (www.ahavahfarm.com/csa) to learn more and sign up. PS. The only way you can get in on this beautiful produce is by joining our CSA and then selecting "Year Round Enrollment"! #fourseasonfarming #csa #communitysupportedagriculture #farmfresh #colorado #coloradosprings #denver #supportlocal

So this happened today. I got a great quote yesterday on having trees removed and couldn't pass it up! Even better was that they were available to do it today! So, now we just have to pull out a few small dead trees and our new plot will be ready to till and cover for winter. In related news, we could have an amazing bonfire party now....🤣😂 . . . . . #marketgarden #fourseasonfarming #wintergardenprep #okagriculture #welcometothelooneyfarm

Head lettuce and salanova growing fantastically in the cat tunnel. How many degrees of protection do these tunnels offer? We hope to collect some data on that this winter. So far It’s raining and 33F outside, yet the tunnels (no heat) are sitting at 43-45F despite 100% cloud cover.

Greens tucked in for the night. Farm hack for the win. I had seen others, maybe here on IG, post this farm hack of two forks with “d” handles and pole for unrolling rolls; but I had a full, heavy, new roll of frost blanket and doubted it would work. Nevertheless I was solo yesterday afternoon and the temps predicted to get into the teens so I tried it. It worked wonderfully at unrolling almost 100’ of frost blanket in seconds. Thanks for sharing your good ideas farmers of IG! #farmher #farmhack #fourseasonfarming

One way to help the movement is to stay aware of what’s going on in your home, neighborhood, town and local environment. If you suspect that chemical farming or pesticide drift may be an issue affecting where you live, work, study or play, contact PAN (Pesticide Action Network. They can send out a “Drift Catcher” - a device that collects air samples to be analyzed for chemical residues. This enables you as a community member to draw attention to or even begin to document otherwise invisible chemical exposures in your area.

Weathered Barn Plywood Siding. Dating back to the tombs of ancient Egypt plywood has been used for everything from home construction and furniture to boats and airplanes. Here a sheet was painted and used for an ad hoc exterior repair on a barn at Hudson Valley Cold Pressed Oils in Pleasant Valley. Weather and wind erosion over decades produced this curiously fluid patterning, a remembrance of the glued-up wood flitches and the trees from which they were originally taken.

Weathered Barn Board. All throughout the Hudson Valley weathered barns populate farm fields. This photographic detail is from an old barn at Hudson Valley Cold Pressed Oils in Pleasant Valley. A study in contrasting textures it is the entirely accidental confluence of wind, rain, and sun on cut pine board.

Spiral Hay Bale Detail. All through the farms of the Hudson Valley we see these wonderful large diameter round bales strewn about the fields. This one suggests everything from ancient Irish megalithic carvings to Vincent Van Gogh’s “Starry Night,” from the Futurist Giacomo Balla’s motion studies to Louise Bourgeois’s spiral studies to Robert Smithson’s “Spiral Jetty.”

30x72 with a big door, insect screened sides, and peak fan...Beneficial wasps will be used for organic pest control in this tunnel, which is the primary reason for the insect netting on the sides. When the wasps are released the big door will remain shut, or will also be screened off until all harmful pest insects have been taken care of #greenhouse #greenhousedesign #movablegreenhouse #ohiofarm #diygreenhouse #greenhousegrown #greenhouseventilation #solawrap #hightunnel #hoophouse #caterpillartunnel #nrcs #cannabiscultivation #cannabiscommunity #coloradofarm #californiagrown #csafarm #smallfarm #seasonextension #fourseasonfarming #permaculture #urbangarden #urbanfarm #ruralfarm #homestead #michiganfarm #indianafarm #homesteading #tunnelvisionhoops
