We have created this blog categorization system as a way to organize and preserve the daily blogs written about our farming life. We hope you find this categorization system helpful.

The following blog entries are all related in some way to the topic of veterinary services. They may cover any one or more of the following topics:
seed saving
variety selection
genetically modified organisms (GMO's)
planting, irrigation, cultivation, harvesting
horticultural methods
horticultural equipment

Or they may simply be essays about some aspect of horticultural science and/or plant husbandry. We hope you find something useful here, or at least some pleasant reading.

If there is some way we can improve our archiving system, please Contact Us and we'll take your recommendations into consideration.

Enjoy!

Amongst those crops are peppers, tomatoes, eggplant, lettuces and cool-season salad greens. We've also gotten some herb cuttings going including rosemary, thyme, sage, tarragon and mints. Our work has primarily been done inside because the weather outside has been dreadful, particularly this year. We’ve had rain almost every day for the last two weeks.
