Whether it’s those last delectable ears of corn or the hint that the weather is about to change again, this later part of the season is certainly a time to be cherished.

Watering Made Easy with Drip Irrigation

drip kitIf you’ve started planting, you are probably spending an inordinate amount of time watering gardens and doing your best to keep everything growing. Hopefully, you’ve benefitted from composting and the nutrient-rich soil it provides (and if not, it’s never too late to start). Another way to make it easier to keep things growing is to have the proper water delivery system in place.

Using drip irrigation and timers that keep the water running even when you’re not there to hold the hose, you can overcome the time constraints that might be keeping you from having easy access to delicious veggies all summer long.

Drip irrigation carries water directly to the base of each plant, so you lose less to evaporation. The slow drip delivers water slowly to the roots of the plants. Our drip irrigation kits are easily customizable and can be set up even by inexperienced gardeners Putting a drip system into your garden is a great do-it-yourself project that will ultimately save you time and help your plants grow.

With all that extra time on your hands, you can get on to the next project. What’s next on your honey-do list?




A Farmer’s Work Is Never Done

farmer morgueYou would think that the long winter in the Midwest would give every farmer a break, but that’s not the case. In fact, the record-low temperatures combined with the extra snow and ice have probably made most farmers in the Midwest at least consider, for a moment, a career change.

The challenges that farmers face during winter are enormous, especially when the weather is unexpectedly colder and snowier than the average, as this winter has been. If animals live on the farm, farmers must cope with the daily battle to keep them warm, protected from the elements and properly hydrated (made even more difficult by freezing pipes).

As spring begins, the days only get longer for the farmer, who, besides maintaining livestock, must also begin planting crops. Some farmers have already started plants in greenhouses, and many more crops will be planted soon. Winter is also the time when farmers must repair equipment and catch up on the business aspects of farming that may have been put aside during the busy summer and the fall harvest, including filing taxes and renewing agreements with vendors and customers.

While many of us have spring fever and can’t wait for a moment to get out in the garden and get our hands dirty, farmers are often looking at spring as just a longer piece of daylight in which to get the work done.

Even though there is a lot of work, we don’t know a single farmer who would trade what he or she does for an office job. There’s simply something satisfying about working the land, and we’re proud to be able to provide high-quality, American-made farm tools and supplies to make the job a little easier.
