Tomato Trivia …

  If you’re anything like me – and, let’s face it, who wouldn’t want to be (don’t answer that) – then you love a good, flavor-packed, vine ripened, locally-grown tomato. Those imported supermarket super models, whose tomato qualities are only skin deep, just don’t make the grade. So I’m more than a little excited to […]

Wee’rrrre Baaaaack!!!!

Well, it’s been quite an off season up here at the Dimond Hill Farm, but just when it seemed like Jane and Pam and the crew just couldn’t take another game of Parcheesi around the kitchen table (or another one of Jane’s room-painting fits), the weather broke enough to allow the gang to get back […]

The Haunting of Dimond Hill

Gather round the hearth my friends and warm yourselves by the fire, safe from the wind and the rain … but not, perhaps, from the chill that’s likely to tickle your spine as I tell you a tale of the ghosts of Dimond Hill. You see, the Dimond Hill Farm seems to sit at a […]

In a letter to his wife, Abigail, shortly after the signing of the Declaration of Independence, John Adams wrote that the Fourth of July each year “ought to be solemnized with pomp and parade, with shows, games, sports, guns, bells, bonfires, and illuminations …” A fine sentiment, of course, and the kind of call to […]

Hey … Won’t Be Long Now!

Spring has sprung up here at the Dimond Hill Farm, with new plantings sprouting in the greenhouses and new products being planted on the Farm Stand shelves. All in preparation for our May 26 farm stand season opener … which can’t come quick enough for me, as the conversation has gotten a bit stale  up […]

Tunnel Vision …

“It’s difficult to think anything but pleasant thoughts while eating a homegrown tomato.” American Humorist and Writer Lewis Grizzard. I love this quote because I can feel the juice running down my chin whenever I read it. Every now and then, up here at the Dimond Hill Farm, we like to pluck the fleshy fruit […]
