Is it HOT Enough For Ya ???
Saturday, June 23, 2012
Each week we pack up our wonderful pickings and drive it to the city. We have met many wonderful people and even made lots of friends. The drive to get there is never uneventful.
From last years tire blow out on Rt 676 to the reconstruction in China Town it has been very eventful, but this year the things we have seen on the Schuykill Expressway have been the most memorable.
Excluding all the dangers....like motorcycles flying up the shoulder at high rates of speed with unhelmeted drivers, phone talkers and texters, and the ever loving make up artists.
A few weeks ago Nancy and Jess took a picture of a truck towing a trailer with a small pool.
But today while we were in stand still traffic with a small SUV next to us we saw it all ..........everyone in the vehicle had on a mask. At first we were a little afraid but then realizing we were right at the on ramp from the zoo our hearts settled to realize that a "cheetah" was driving, a "panda" was front seat passenger and what we think was a "tiger" was in the back seat. Go figure !!!!

The McCann’s Farm
February 27, 2012
Volume 1, Number 1
Though we are not complaining about the warm weather the farm could really use some colder weather. A good freeze of the ground helps kill bacteria and pests each winter. This makes a longer period of time when pest and fungicide control are not needed.
All is not lost though…………..here at The McCann’s Farm we use lots of leaf mulch which can also help us control bacteria that can live in the soil. The new leaf mulch each year places a barrier between the soil and the plant. Of course as the mulch breaks down we have to reapply.
It would be so much easier to just have mother nature freeze the ground for us!!!!
Are you a home gardener? Looking for great seeds. I know here at the farm the seed catalogs are perused for weeks. We love looking at the older varieties coming back into fashion and reading the latest and greatest farming techniques.
A few of our favorite seed websites are
Easter at the Farm
