Fall is coming !!!!

You can see by the blogs I write.........Summer is crazy busy.  I find myself blogging in Spring and then Fall for this reason.  Summer sure did fly by us.  The is was the wettest, hottest, coolest summer ever.  We had very few irrigation days but many "drainage" days.  Where we had to ditch the fields to flow the rainwater away from the fields.
Farmer's Markets are starting to wind down and corn maze reservations coming in pretty much daily now.
A few pics from fall last 2012......

Gourds and Mums everywhere !!!

Spring has Sprung !!!!

Spring weather has us excited here at the farm.  With new farmer's markets  and extending hours for our Porch Market we are gearing up for a super planting!!!  We are doubling the amount of tomatoes and cucumbers since we often run out of those.  Many other items are increasing as well!!!

Last year we added to the strawberry field so we hope everyone is ready to purchase our harvest !!!

We planted tomatoes in our greenhouse last month and they look great.  Nice and big.....if we can get good pollination on them we should have tomatoes in June!!!

Our farmer's Markets in Philadelphia are listed on our web site http://themccannsfarm.com/pages/Wherecanyoubuyourproduce.php most will start in late May.

Babies at the Farm !!!!

Every winter in the hum drum of the cold and wet there is one highlight...........BABIES !!!

Goats and sheep usually have their babies January through March.

This year we had a tragic birth.....a new goat died in birth.

But we recently had 2 lambs and a goat !!!

The sadness of the animals we loose serves as a reminder of how precious life is for everyone and that we need to hold our love ones closer.

Celebrate with us our new babies...................no names yet !!!
