Hobby Farm Life Ramblings

Written by , Posted in farming, Hobby Farming, Home and Garden, Uncategorized

Hobby Farm Life Ramblings for June 23rd. This is my account of things we had done so far on Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm. During the Winter we added Horse manure to the garden plot. Yellow Straight Neck Squash have gone crazy. My goal was 52 qts for the year. I made that, gave away several buckets full to kids, my mother, and friends. We are still canning Squash today and will need to pick it again tomorrow. We planted Country Gentleman White corn, but it didn’t do well. I just discovered some of the ears have Smut on them. We had to burn them. We do plan to plant more for a second garden later. Did get some cornsilk to dry for my medicine cabinet. Stan went crazy on planting all the seeds I gathered and didn’t realize he had planted okra. It is not even a foot tall and is trying to bloom on us.Don’t think it is gonna do good either. Our Cabbage Collards are doing fine. I planted them thick and we have been eating what we thin out. I have even managed to can a few qts of them. Our Tomatoes are just beginning to make, […]

Friday Morning Ramblings on the Hobby Farm

Written by , Posted in farming, Green Living, Hobby Farming, Pets and Animals, sustainable living

After my first pot of coffee this morning, I will again become awake. My husband is building a small fire in the livingroom fireplace to knock the chill off the air this morning. He worked the nightshift again last night and will be snuggling into the bed soon. I am glad he has the next two days off. He needs some rest and we still have some winterizing to do around the farm. After feeding all the animals including myself this morning, I will start raking and cleaning the yard today. Removing some of the dead plants from the flower and vegetable beds around the house itself will help to add to our compost bins today. There is plastic to hang over the Rabbit Houses, chicken coop, duck pens, and the goat house. When my husband gets up he will be running some of the wiring for the new heat lamps we have for all the animals housing. We plan to keep them all warm this winter. Reminds me of the Aviary we had. It was warmer than our own house at times and I loved spending hours in there with the animals just watching and listening to them. I […]

The Solution to Adding a Watering System

Written by , Posted in farming, Hobby Farming, Home and Garden

Having the perfect lawn or garden this year means having the right watering system for it. Now this doesn’t mean you go out in the yard or garden and dig it all up making it unsightly.  Using tripod lawn sprinkler systems can make things simple for you and can water your lawn or garden as well as the more expensive systems. There is no need for the big industrial type sprinklers which most farms use today. In combination with the right sprinkler heads, the system works like the ones used by professional farmer. Simply plant the system firmly on the ground and adjust the height so it covers the area you want watered. The Pop-up sprinkler is another sprinkler system that can be used in your yard or vegetable garden. It cost a little more and is a little more complex to install which does consist of digging up your yard or garden. It pops-up out of the ground to deliver water to your yard or gardens; then disappears back into the ground when it is finished. It leaves no unsightly equipment sticking up out of the grounds. Either one of these sprinkler systems can be coupled with a timer, […]

Today’s Happenings on Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm

Written by , Posted in farming, Hobby Farming, Pets and Animals

Plums Plums and more Plums will be picked today on Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm. I only have 2 extremely large trees that make the bright red variety of plums and they are loaded. Today I am making a plum sauce (gelled like cranberry sauce) and plum jelly too. I have a few jars of plum juice canning for us to have to drink. It is really nice to serve hot with a cinnamon stick to stir it on a cold winter day. Sunnyside Lane Hobby Farm Squash (yellow crookneck and straight neck, zucchini and patty) were all loaded yesterday, so I am sending some to work with Stan today for his boss, who was hinting he’d like to have some fresh squash. Later this afternoon, I will be picking snap beans and English peas. They are slowing down now so I hope to get enough for supper tonight.   We did our morning feeding of all our birds. Stan had moved the new Jumbo Coturnix quail from the brooder to a quail pen he recently made yesterday. We found only one dead this morning. It was the smallest one and I think it was a shock of the moving that may have […]
