The New Tiller

My dad testing the new tiller

So far from what I can tell the new tiller is going to for sure save a lot of time, and make planting and tilling much easier.

Now if only things could dry out a little more so I could get everything tilled. Unfortunately I do not think everything is going to dry out enough to get it all tilled, at least not before winter. I think that I am also going to have to deal with some drainage issues this coming spring. There are just too many areas that water just seem to sit, which makes it very difficult for things to dry out.

Garlic is finally in the ground!

It took awhile, mostly my own fault, but the garlic is finally in the ground. We got most of it in the ground on Nov. 12th. I believe we planted somewhere around 15 different varieties of garlic. Unfortunately we will not be selling all those different varieties next year because most of them we will be saving to plant next fall, but it is still very exciting to be planting so many different varieties.

Below is a picture of the area in which we planted our garlic. We did not plant the entire row, but we did plant quite a bit of it.

Welcome to the new Ba Farm Blog!

Welcome to the new Real Veggies Farm Blog! The purpose of this blog is to let everyone know what is going on with us here at Ba Farm, also to share vegetable recipes, health info and other useful information about the vegetables we grow.

We grow most of our vegetables on 2 acres in Lafayette Ohio, the rest is grown at home in Brunswick Ohio. But everything we sell is grown by us, we do not purchase any of our vegetables or produce at auctions. We try to follow organic practices (we are not certified organic) and do not use any chemicals or pesticides on any of our vegetables. Everything we sell is picked fresh the day before the market, so you know everything is as fresh as it can possibly be.

We like to grow a variety of different vegetables and many rare varieties that you do not always see elsewhere. For example we do not only grow green beans but also yellow, purple, and even striped beans. We also grow a wide variety of heirloom tomatoes, and one of our best sellers are our containers of mixed colors heirloom cherry tomatoes. That contain cherry tomatoes such as yellow, purple, red, pink, orange, green, brown, and striped.

You can check out the pictures of our farm, vegetables and past market photos on our picture page.
