Tadpoles galore!

Tadpoles galore!

Here is an interesting photo taken on May 3rd at the Pickerel Lake Wetland trail which is part of Camp Newaygo.  The board provides a backdrop so you can see the tadpoles better.  The little pond along the trail, where this photo was taken, has thousands, perhaps even a million or more, of these tadpoles.  From this observation, along with the sound of frogs near Pickerel Lake on warm evenings, there doesn’t seem to be any shortage of food that largemouth bass find unbelievably yummy!

As I feared, the forecast for a rainy night proved a bust!  No measurable rain fell at the farm :( :( :(  While its cloudy now, the sun is forecast to come out this afternoon.

OUR GREENHOUSE IS NOW OPEN! In years past we had primarily perennial and annual flower plants available, but this year we are adding a lot more edibles which are not only Bridge Card eligible, are priced very competitively! (By the way, we are now taking Credit and Debit cards in addition to the Bridge Card.)  Beginning of this week we will have apple trees, peach trees, pawpaw trees, hardy Wisconsin pecan seedlings, blueberry bushes, red raspberries, rhubarb, seedless grapes, strawberries, sweet onions, tomatoes, and peppers. In the way of flowers and ornamentals we will be having hollyhocks, coral bells, sempervivum, sedum, vinca, redbud trees, beauty bushes, white pine, ostrich ferns and more. Later on we will be having all kinds of potted herbs including basil (green and purple), chives, sage, parsley, peppermint, summer savory, marjoram, cilantro, thyme, oregano, lavender, and rosemary. As well as other vegetable plants including winter squash, summer squash, cucumbers, melons, and pumpkins. In the way of flowers and ornamentals we will also be having a larger selection of annuals and perennials including echinacea (purple coneflower), morning glory, nasturtium, mums, daisy, petunia, impatiens and begonia and many more!

    I am a teacher at Newaygo Middle School. This year I received a grant to put in Biodiversity gardens on our Middle School Campus site. One of the gardens will be fruit. I am interested in purchasing, apple trees to be planted, strawberries, raspberries and blackberries. Cold you give me some pricing details? Thank you

      Hello Deb,

      Apple trees run from $25-$30 each, all of them dwarf and some very dwarf which will save on room in your garden.
      Strawberries are everbearing and run from 75 cents each to $2 each. A good complement plant to the strawberry is the rhubarb which we also have. They are $10 each.
      Red Raspberries are $10 each.
      We don’t have blackberries, but we do have 4 varieties of blueberries, one of which ripens very late, which could help extend the season of your garden. The blueberries run from $8-$12 each.
      If you have a fence or structure you want to cover you may want to think about grapes as well. We have red seedless grapes at $10 each.

      Hope this helps! Let me know if you have any questions. Drop me an email if you like:
