The high tunnel at 4am; we’ve been clearing it off every couple hours inside and out since then to prevent collapse under the weight of the snow. Grateful that Farmer Dad is clearing while I get to stay home and watch my babies enjoy the wonder of the snow. #snowstorm2018 #hightunnel #savethehightunnel #snowclearing #farmlife #upat4am #smallfarm #familyfarm #snowwonder #snowbabies #throughtheeyesofachild #sweetbabies #snowday #farmerdad #yearroundfarming #wsnc #pfafftown #farmchores #farmworkout #centuryfarm #diversifiedfarming #winstonsalem #snowpocalypse #winterstormdiego #snowday #snowmageddon

Added a second covering to our greenhouse plants. Every covering is supposed to add 1.5 zones warmer, so with this inner covering and the outside covering, we move 3 zones south. The spinach and kale plants are definitely still alive, although not growing at the moment. Hoping once the days start growing longer, we will see some real growth. We should be able to harvest some salads come March. #hightunnel #growyourownfood #mainegardening #innercovering #wintergardening

Growing up on a farm would seem like an ideal situation. This is my middle child at about 6 months old in 2012. She was ecstatic about selling our farm, getting it listed and getting a for sale sign on our house. FYI, our farm and house is no longer on the real estate market and we had to make a new plan. More info coming soon.

Did I mention that we have a YouTube channel?? Well...we do. How to install greenhouse plastic, squaring a future structure, framing a tunnel's end-walls, and much more is covered in existing videos, and the plan is to keep posting videos as regularly as possible.

Did y’all know that today is World Soil Day?! Yeah, me neither. Dirt! I love this stuff. It’s our greatest resource as farmers. We must conserve and protect it. Pictured behind me is Jerry. He is one of two high tunnels that we (mostly Ern) have just finished building to replace our mega tunnel that was destroyed by high winds in July. Jerry’s counterpart is Ben. The two are aptly named for the calories from whence Ern received the energy to build them. mmm, ice cream Yay for soil conservation! And thanks NRCS! ***** #worldsoilday #dirt #soil #soilconservation #nrcs #hightunnel #seasonextension #smallfarm #flowerfarm #flowerfarmer #conservation #loveyourmother #benandjerrys #sustainablefarming #woodfordcounty #kentucky

Farm visits are always my favorite and it's even better when the host farm shares a love of native herbal remedies. Thanks wonderful team at SCF-Organics hosted @saraclow and I last month to share their experience as a farmer cooperative and Certified Organic dry farm. . . Although we've shared seeds, recipes, and herbal remedies, it was the first time we've really talked about their incredible grassroots community building. They are a model for rural farmer empowerment and despite their incredible success they are truly the most down to earth group around. . . You can find their produce and herbal remedies in Columbia at the Rosewood Farmers, Sandhills Farmers Market and at the Camden Farmers Market.

I don't mind the cold so much, but days on end that look exactly like this are starting to wear on my soul a bit. I felt the same about living in the PNW. It never got that cold, but by late spring I felt like I was in purgatory, each grey day exactly like the one that came before it. At least we have colorful veggies to brighten our days. That said, I'd better get to processing greens and packing boxes. We have a record number of orders today! 👊

We haven't been able to work in the high tunnel as much as we would like with all this rain, but we got a little bit done and it's starting to take shape. We bought the hoops used so there is a bit of trial and error, initially we had 4' of ground post above ground but the tunnel was way to high and we opted to sink the ground posts another foot in the ground. The hoops are going up easy and should have the rest up soon! . . #hightunnel #greenhouse #growyourownfood #gardenprojects #trailanderror #toomuchrain #marketgarden #seasonextension #smallfarm #piedmonthomestead

Yes! We finally got a sunny, windless day to skin the new high tunnel. There was a moment when I didn't think it was going to happen. Looking forward to all kinds of green growing things in here this Spring. A huge thank you once again to our extended farm family. We couldn't do all this without you!

Have you ever grown your own medicine? . . So incredibly excited to be harvesting fresh ginger and tumeric this weekend! Both plants have proven medicinal value as well as amazing flavor. . I am doubly excited to have help in this adventure. Mason is one of the young men who works part-time at the farm and who has a growing interest in medicinal plants. . Another helper is the incomparable Lynne, who is busy testing recipes (candied ginger, ginger-tumeric paste, tumeric pickles) as I write this. And, although she is no longer farming, I am also indebted to Cathy Payne, who sold us our initial Hawaiian feedstock. . Busy hands, happy, happy heart!! . . #sheepcotefarm #homegrown #ginger #tumeric #naturalremedies #spices #hightunnel #growyourownmedicine #candiedginger #ladieshomesteadgathering #iamcountryside #countrysideandfarmlife

This structure is 20 ft. x 72 ft. It is set up with 8mm twin wall polycarb end-walls, thermostatically controlled forced ventilation, a heater, and an inflated double layer covering (...soon to be inflated since electrical is just getting run now). The customer will be putting benches in there shortly as well #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

Since it’s #tbt , we have an excuse to share a picture of this beauty from October 17 in our high tunnel. 😍 The fall season felt short this year, and now we’re inside getting data from all our experiments entered and analyzed, but it’s so nice to see something green!

It's that time of year again. If you have a tunnel, and even if you don't, this scene is likely very familiar. Frost blanket does a great job keeping the earths stored temperatures close to your plants. We are a distributor of the DeWitt brand frost blanket, so if anyone needs some extra blanket, don't hesitate to shoot us a line. Stay warm out there! #hightunnel #hoophouse #greenhouse #urbanagriculture #urbanfarm #urbanfarming #urbanag #michiganfarm #ohiofarm #virginiafarm #iowafarm #indianafarm #nrcs #oeffa #nmsfc #acresusa #permaculture #seasonextension #farmcapacity #farmproductivity #profitablefarming #selfsufficiency #survivalist #microfarm #microfarming #smallfarm #smallfarming #tunnelvisionhoops

Our new piglets are enjoying their winter shelter! We put up this high tunnel five years ago to keep our pigs warm and dry through the winter and with the mulch floor, the pigs are at home and can root to their hearts’ content. . . The door on one end stays open so they can go in snd out to their winter playground. Pigs have so much fun in the snow!
