Turning up the heat

  Hello ,We certainly made a sudden leap into summer weather this week.  Last week we were working along as normal and then suddenly the thermostat got cranked up about ten degrees or so.  For us this means drinking lots of water and rushing to keep up with the plants as they go into overdrive.  […]

Summertime News

Happy Summer! It has been a nice gradual spring, a mixed blessing for farmers – but we’re glad summer is here now. We almost have all the full-season crops in the ground, and we’re into the rhythm for the ones we plant regularly like lettuces, beans and beets. Our time is balanced between harvesting, weeding, […]

Tastiness Growing!

May was a dynamite month for us here on the farm. We’ve been able to get a lot of crops into the ground earlier than we’d expected given the late spring thaw and relatively wet month of May. Kale, chard, lettuce, arugula, spinach, peas, beans, edamame, parsley, cilantro, summer squash, carrots, parsnips, rutabagas, beets, tomatoes […]

Happy Spring!

It is almost hard to believe that spring is finally here. The mountains of snow are slowly starting to melt (yesterday I found a “to do list” from January in a snowbank: some of the items are still to be done…) and the first signs of life have appeared in the greenhouse. This weekend we’ll […]

It’s toasty in the Greenhouse

  It may still be cold outside, but it is nice and toasty in the greenhouse these days.  For the past week and change we have been busy waking up our dormant farm.  The thin walls of the greenhouse combined with the warm sun have meant a few blissful days of working in T-shirts and […]

June and the First CSA

June has proven to be a busy month here at Fiddlehead Farm.  We have been running in between rain drops to get crops in and to clean the garden of weeds.  It has not been an easy task, but I am happy to say the garden is looking lush and green and many of our […]

Jess (aka Shake & Bake)

I’m hungry, I’m sore, I have a sunburn on my arms… and I wouldn’t trade feeling this way for anything! Farming is my passion and my obsession and I want to do it every day as long as I can. My name is Jess and I am the Harvest Manager and fellow farmer alongside Steve […]

April Showers

Spring is finally starting to take shape here on the farm.  I am happy to see that the progress that we made in our first year has laid a good foundation for this year.  The greenhouse is full of seedlings ready to be planted and the fields are plowed from the fall.  The rains have […]

Maple in the County

This past weekend (March 23rd  & 24th) was the annual Maple in the County event.  While Fiddlehead Farm hasn’t yet gotten around to establishing its sugar bush I took the opportunity to do something rare: I got off the farm and did some touring around the county.  Heather will attest to the fact that I […]

Spring is in the Air

March has finally arrived and while there is still snow on the ground I am slowly beginning to emerge from hibernation.  While it has been a busy winter plugging away at things on my desk and working to ensure that 2013 knocks the socks off of 2012 I am still feeling the sluggishness of a […]
