Here is a view from the town common shortly after we painted the old farmhouse. Yes, it still snows in Western Massachusetts for at least part of the winter!
Upper Garden and Red Barn looking North
The upper garden in full bloom when we had an active cut flower operation. We replaced the Red Barn roof with metal roofing in 2000.
Farm Field looking toward South East
Our youngest son climbed the small poplar tree that marks our North West corner and took this shot of the main field on an autumn afternoon. Garlic beds are in the foreground, then some late brassicas, with cover crop and late sweetcorn to the east. Our grass paths can be seen between the production beds as well as the 50' buffer zone we maintain between us and our neighbors' fields.
Propagation House Early Tomatoes
Here's a view of the 48' X 26' propagation house looking North on a warm Spring morning. Propane heat and a dual stage cooling fan provide good temperature controls, and the hip boards allow rolling up both sides for summer cooling.
Three Greenhouses looking West from Upper Garden
A late Fall view of the three greenhouses in the upper garden. The house to the right (72' X 17') is glazed with two layers of film and inflated with a 110 volt fan. The middle house (144' X 17') is glazed with a single layer of infrared reflective film. The propagation house (48' X 26') is at the rear.
