Happy January friends! As some of you know I get a lot of my seeds from Baker Creek. Well look at this awesome packaging I found holding my latest seed orders. I cut the front of the bubble mailer off. I’m not sure what I will do with it but I couldn’t bring myself to… Continue reading Seeds are arriving
2021 is over and I suppose I was so busy living life that I forgot to document much about the farm. I can confidently say that 2021 was the most productive growing season we’ve had so far. We were able to grow many new varieties and succeed in areas where we previously failed. We spent… Continue reading 2021 Year in Review
The Singing Squash Farm nursery is in full seed starting mode. I actually started the first seeds in early February. The first seeds to germinate were Black King Pansies. As I understand it the genus Viola has 4 subgroups of which the pansy is listed as B1. I thought this background on the name pansy… Continue reading Seed Starting in 2021
It is the end of February and I realized I didn’t even post last month. I’ve been busy sprouting seeds! It’s still cold here in Utah but spring is only 3 weeks away.

He found most of them but couldn’t find one of our Plymouth Rock birds. We’ve seen a beautiful pair of owls flying over the farm since early summer so we… Continue reading Dealing with loss on the farm

The truth is I make my wife do everything in the garden while I supervise. Although we both spend nearly the same amount of time out by the… Continue reading She is the reason our garden works
Our little farm looks a little depressing without any plants in it. This day turned out to be the coldest day of the fall season. Wind was the main problem. Sometimes you just have to work with what you have. We are so excited for the 2021 season that we built these beds now. Well… Continue reading Have you seen the price of wood lately?
What do you do when the season is over and we’re not even close to seed starting? Paint some vegetables of course. We painted this a few weeks ago and the plan has already changed slightly. We’ll we changed tomato varieties and we’ve decided not to plant potatoes, and I bought a few more seeds… Continue reading Garden Date Night
They finally arrived! After obtaining all of our seeds for next season we were still missing most of our carrots. After checking the http://www.rareseeds.com web site over and over I had the Uzbeks in my sights. As usual they shipped our seeds right away and less than a week later I added these beauties to… Continue reading Carrots in our mailbox
