Weekly  progress on the tomatoes  we  started Planting February  15th.

  You may be familiar with this bit of weather folklore about MarchIf March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb. March came in like a lion 3” snow then 4 degrees.

We will be starting the Wood Fired Boiler, we harvest all the wood from our Farm. We use the heat to supplement heating needs for our Greenhouse’s, so I wanted to know how much carbon it put out. This is what I found.

The carbon dioxide released when burning wood (about 1900g CO2 for each 1000g of wood burntis balanced by the fact that this carbon was taken up by the tree from the air when it grew. So this part of the emissions is carbon-neutral. May 19, 2008 Originally posted on Transition Network

Whats Happen At Country Taste Farm


after 6 days
after 5 days

We have started Planting Tomato Seeds 150 seeds we use bottom Heat which we have found that we can use ice melt cable to heat the flats much less expensive than heat mats that they sell. We have purchased a temperature controller. We set bottom heat at 75 until plants have true leafs starting. It takes about 10 to 14 days to germinate. This year only 5days.

We found a Great  modern Potato Digger it harvest 2 rows at one time “USA Made” , we did not need a two row however the price was right.



The Weather in January was mild great for working outside and in High tunnels, hope it continues in February. HA HA HA  So far February has made up for mild January with very cold below zero temps.  I guess it’s why we sometimes call it “Feburrrrary”
