  • Troop 76
  • Swallows glean in flight

    Swallow Rail was the name Dad gave the farm over 30 years ago. He wanted it to be relevant, reflecting the spatial and natural qualities of his 18 acres in Western Shelby County.  

    His inspiration came from the swallows that swoop and swerve so adeptly in open fields, catching insects on the fly.  

    The rail of Swallow Rail comes from the two railroad tracks that flank either end of the road.  

  • Tomato trouble shooting

    We cannot control the weather but we can control what our tomatoes eat, so to speak. At planting time, we prepare the soil with composted hen manure and a little organic fertilizer; we also mulch around the plants immediately in order to moderate soil moisture and to prevent the spread of soil-borne diseases.   

    This year our work at building healthy soil has paid off because the tomatoes are thriving. Some folks have not been as lucky as the rain poured down earlier in the season.

  • Curing onions, garlic and potatoes

    We harvested some fantastic looking potatoes and garlic over the weekend; I am so excited about the garden this year because it is performing so well.  

    We need to wait a few more weeks on the onions as we wait for their “tops to flop,” which allows them to store better. 

    We have enjoyed some fresh green onion and bulbs but for the bulk of the crop, we to want harvest and cure them properly so they will store well.
