A Happy New Year!

Posted on January 5, 2017 at 10:20 PM Comments comments (0)

I for one thing am so happy 2016 is over and I am moving on towards better health! I am anxious for all the new seed catalouges to start coming in the mail and to start planning all the rotations of where the plants will be put into the ground this year.   I can't wait to get outdoors and be a part of God's beautiful landscape.  I missed most of my summer and fall outdoors so  I do know that I am going to have to build some muscle back so I can keep up with Kraig in the gardens!  What are your new year plans?

We hope that you will find the website signup a little easier as we have omitted the pdf forms.  I am looking forward to working with our website company and they have upgraded a few things. 

God Bless!

Finding Blessings

Posted on June 26, 2016 at 8:45 PM Comments comments (1)

We have a had a busy spring with our youngest son graduating High School, planting for the new CSA season, and visiting doctors and specialist.  As all of our families know, I was just diagnosed with breast cancer May 23 and alot has happened since that day.  My double masectomy surgery was June 21 and I will find out tomorrow if I need chemo or not.  I publish this not to recieve sympathy but to encourage other women to do their mammograms and get your annual physicals.  I know that you may say, I am to busy, to expensive, or what ever reason you have, just do it.  It may save your life!  Also, I have found that by sharing with others, I am building an awesome support network.  As  a mom, wife, friend, etc we need this.  I have been blessed to have  wonderful family and friends and they have been truly supportive of us and our work at the Double K Hobby Farm.  They are all working hard to ensure a good harvest for the families who have signed with us!

Newletters notes

Social Media, so much to learn but I love the challenge of new things.  

Last season, I tried a separate  blogging service but honestly, I just didn't have the time to dedicate writing a fun witty article that could maybe hold your atttention span for a few minutes.  Plus it is a service I have to pay for so in May, we are cutting out the www.doublekhobbyfarm.net

I am going to try to do more Facebook post, Instagram, personal emails, and if you check out the tab above "Newsletter" you can subsribe and every week when the season starts, I will have an organized format of the farm news and happenings. You will only receive a newsletter if you fill in your contact info.   After researching, I feel that I can do this with the help of mailchimp service and the best part it is a free!

If you are having difficulty seeing the photos in the gallery, please use Chrome as your search engine instead of the older version of google.  If you continue to have difficulty, give us a call and perhaps we can help.  The pictures are a fun way for you to stay connected to what we are doing.  We made a few changes to how the pics are displayed so we hope that it will be easier for you to see.

Have a wonderful Blessed Easter!

Spring is around the corner and we have done 'lots of gardening on computer software and printing our plans' and we are ready to get started in the dirt.   Only problem is, Mother Nature is not ready for us.  I will be happy though once the rest of seed pods come and will starting planting indoors. I plant one seed a time in the pod and those little things become my 'babies' for the next 4-6 weeks!

What a wonderful January we have had compared to last Jan! I love that the days are getting longer and I can watch the sunset on my way home from Willmar. I look forward to our spring days and the long summer days because I enjoy working outdoors. I always say that it doesn't feel like work when you love what you do. Except when the mosquitoes are withdrawing my blood and the occasional garden snake is under foot, then it is not fun.:D

 

We met with a consultant on Tues and he shared with us some resources and ideas on how we can make improvements to the Double K Hobby Farm. There are alot of different avenues we can take and it will take time to reach those goals. For example, we will plant more things on plastic this year, but not everything yet. We may try a more advanced drip irrigation system. We are a super small farm buisiness and we want to keep our costs down and pass on the savings to you. Please remember that we still are "old fashioned" and have to rely on the usual fashion of growing a garden. When you come to visit us, we are a working hobby farm! We are not picture perfect. We love what we do and we want you to love your veggies!

Planning month

Posted on January 12, 2015 at 5:30 PM Comments comments (0)

This is the month where we get excited about the new 2015 season!  Seed Catalogs are coming in the mail and we start to map out where all the new vegetables will go in the gardens. I love using the Jung garden planner as it helps keep me organized with crop rotations.  It is  great web tool and even if you have your own gardens at home, I would recommend trying it out.  go to JungsSeeds.com and run a trial basis to see what you think.

We are going to be trying some new varieties of produce this year, such as the green beans, brussels sprouts, and carrots. It is fun for us to change it up because we eat what you eat and we like to try new things also. 

A big change for us this year is that we will not be servicing as many families, about half or less because I need to go back to work at a traditional 8-5 job so my farm work hours will be decreased.  We will only have 1  day of delivery on Monday eve. Farm open hours are Wed 6:30pm to 8:30pm and Sat from 9am to 12pm.  The farm open hours means that you are welcome to come to the farm and shop market style to put in your basket. Keep in mind though, that with growing crops, weather is a huge factor and we are subject to change our days and times but we will try our best to keep the 2015 schedule. Once we have met our limit of shares, we will need to turn people away so we encourage you to sign early before May 1. 

We are looking forward to seeing you again and if you are new to Double K Hobby Farm, we welcome your questions.

Theresa
