Potatoes in a container

Container Preparation

Any medium size container that holds at least two or three gallons of soil can be used. Examples include baskets, large paint buckets (drill plenty of holes in the bottom and lower sides & fill the bottom inch or two with gravel), Grow Bags or large plant containers/nursery pots. Make sure there are adequate holes for excess water to drain.

Fill the bottom of each container with a few inches of potting soil, which will be where potato roots will grow. Do not use soil from your yard in a container. It will become compacted and hard – 2 things potatoes hate. Mix in a scant handful of all-purpose or organic fertilizer. Place the container where it will get sunlight but not too much radiated heat from a wall or patio.

Plant the Seed Pieces

Cut your seed potatoes into chunks with at least 2 sprouts/eyes on each chunk. Smaller potatoes can be planted whole.

Plant your potato seed pieces in the soil. How many pieces you plant will depend on the size of your container. You can plant 4-6 seed potato pieces in a 10 gallon container or 2-3 in a 5 gallon container. Water well to get the plants started. Continue to water as needed to keep plants moist, not wet.

Cover Plant Stems as They Grow

Once plants begin to grow, gently pile new soil around the lower stems to keep them in total darkness. Continue weekly until the containers are almost filled. Continue to water down deep around roots, but do not keep the plants wet. 

Harvest

When the leaves and stems start to turn yellow its time to cut back on the water. Your plants are finished growing. You could also move your containers to a more shaded spot – especially it they are in full sun and it’s hot outside. When the stems are totally yellow, you can harvest your potatoes!

Contact us with your order ahead of coming out. We will have everything ready for you at the time you choose. You can pick up your order from our self service farmstand. Total self Distancing!

Succulents

Succulents!
We have a variety of succulents growing in the greenhouse.
We will sell them as individual plants in 3.5 inch pots and also will have some 10 inch dish style planters available.
Succulents are one of the easiest plants to grow. They require very little water. Let them enjoy the outdoors during the summer and bring them inside in the fall. They are pretty amazing little plants. You will find baby plants growing where leaves have dropped around the Mother plant. Some varieties sent out new plants (like in the bottom picture) that you can easily press into the soil so it can take root.
They will be ready for sale the beginning of May.

Potatoes

Growing potatoes is a fun project for kids and adults. They can be successfully grown in a large container or directly in the ground. I’ve even seen them grown in straw bales! If you are interested in trying that, you will need to find organic straw.

Soil preparation is very important since potatoes like loose soil and our soil is naturally heavy. Compost is the easiest and fastest way to loosen your garden soil. You can even get herb seeds to combine them with potato and make delicious organic meals.

The first step is to cut the potatoes into chunks with at least 2 sprouts in each chunk. Our sets are just starting to sprout, making it easier to do. As you cut the potato, place the cut pieces in a container in a single layer – being careful not to break off the sprouts. We usually do this the day before we plan to plant so the cut part of the potato can seal over.

We plant ours in the ground and start by marking off the row with a string line – not necessary, but we like straight rows. Use a hoe to make a furrow in the soil about 12 inches deep. Start placing potato pieces in the furrow 12 inches apart. My hand trowel is 12 inches long so I usually use that for measuring. Carefully press the potato piece into the soil – still being careful to not break off the sprouts. I try to place the potato piece so that the cut side is facing down and the sprouts are facing up. After you have all your pieces in the furrow, fill it in with about half of the loose soil that you took out. The potatoes should be covered with about 1 inch of soil. As the potatoes begin to sprout through the soil, you will go back and fill in the furrow with the rest of the loose soil. Before I fill in the final time, I sprinkle some granular organic fertilizer in the furrow then fill in the soil over the top. I use Dr Earth.

When your potatoes are all up and out of the soil, you will need to check them every couple of days for Colorado potato beetles ( I do this while I’m hoeing weeds). If you can destroy the adults and any eggs you find early in the season, it will make a big impact on the health of your plants. They’re 2nd favorite crop is eggplant. So, if you’re growing eggplant, try to keep it as far from your potatoes as possible and check them for beetles too. This is also a good time to hill your potatoes. I use a hoe and pull soil up onto each side of the row. The benefits of hilling are you will get more potatoes as the plants send out roots into the loose soil and you are removing the weeds at the same time. After your final hilling, you can put down a mulch to keep the soil moist and reduce future weeds. Organic straw is my first choice. If you can’t find that – you can use crass clippings from a trusted source (the herbicides that many people use on their lawn will kill you garden vegetables) or chopped leaves.

I feed my plants with a spray of liquid seaweed 2 or 3 times throughout the season.

At the end of the season, the plants will start to turn yellow. Before the vines totally die (and you loose track of where your plants are) start digging your potatoes! This is the exciting part! We use a garden fork and loosen the soil about 12 inches away from the base of the plant. Nothing makes me sadder than to find a stabbed beautiful potato on the end of my fork.

We will have certified organic potato sets available starting Friday.

Contact us to place your order and we will have it ready for you in our self service farmstand. You can pick it up and pay with no contact!

All potato sets are $5.00 per container. Carola and Red Gold are 1 pound in the container – Austrian Crescent is 12 ounces.

Garlic and Cover

The garlic looks like every clove came up and will turn into a beautiful bulb in late June!

Bill went over the rest of the back garden bed with a disk and I planted it with a cover crop mix – buckwheat, medium red clover, forage beets, kale and Austrian peas. This garden is very close to our bee hives so the bees wont have to go far for dinner! I may but some late sunflowers in the garlic bed after harvest. This garden has really suffered from the past 3 years of flooding rain events and will benefit from a year of rest,

Posted in 2020 Harvest, Main Menu | Comments Off on Garlic and Cover

Garden Planning

Now is the perfect time to be working on getting your garden beds or containers ready for planting!

Cool season crops are very happy to grow in these temperatures – Spinach, kale, lettuce, radishes and peas are all great for direct sowing in cool damp conditions. 

1. Focus.

What are your favorite flowers or vegetables? Make a short list and start with those, to ensure you will want to eat and enjoy what comes up in the garden. Starting out with a smaller garden will also prevent you from becoming over-whelmed with the maintenance required. You will get a larger harvest from a small well tended garden than you will from a large garden filled with weeds that compete with your plants.

If you need organic soil to fill containers or add to your beds, we have bags available for pick-up in our farmstand. $8.00 per bag

Bread Lab – Round 2

Yesterday I worked on a recipe that is a little less challenging than the wild yeast sourdough that I usually make with our flour. I started with a recipe from my favorite Williams-Sonoma baking book and made an adjustment to the flour. I used 4 cups of our sifted Turkey Red stone ground flour and 2 cups of organic all purpose flour. It rose beautifully but ended up a little too fluffy for our preference. So, if you like fluffy bread – this is perfect. Next batch I will try 100% whole wheat.

Our Flour is available in 5 pound buckets for $10.00

Seed Potatoes

Today we picked up part of our seed potato order.

This part came from Vermont Valley – an organic potato grower in Wisconsin. We ordered extra so we could offer some for sale. Potatoes are easily grown in containers or in the ground – kids love the “surprise” of finding the potatoes at harvest time AND who doesn’t love potatoes!? We choose varieties that grow well in our soil and have a fabulous flavor. The great flavor means you don’t need to use lots of toppings. Actually, they are so good that less is better!

We will be selling seed potatoes in our farmstand along with our other transplants.

The varieties we will have available are Carola, Red Gold and Austrian Crescent.

Grinding wheat this morning

I’ve been baking more bread than usual while we have been staying home so had used all of our flour. So, this morning we brought the stone grinder out for grinding some of our Turkey Red wheat into flour.  We do not sell the bread but we do sell the flour. We also have lots of food grade buckets that come with our oils for soap making. They originally held coconut oil and have a nice tight fitting lid. We’ve washed them and are re-purposing them to hold flour.

Each bucket holds 5 pounds. $10.00 per bucket

I make a 100% sourdough (no additional yeast) with our flour & have found that this flour works best for me with a long (overnight) rise. There are several recipes for no-knead bread that use regular yeast and are far less complicated for a beginning baker. Breadtopia is a great resource for recipes as well as supplies. I would suggest starting with their No-knead recipe. Also, sifting at least half of the flour gives me a better rise.

Stone grinding our Turkey Red wheat into flour.

Stone ground Turkey Red whole wheat flour

Heritage Turkey Red Whole Wheat Flour

Our whole wheat flour contains 100% of the vitamins and minerals naturally occurring in wheat. Turkey Red is a heritage variety of wheat that was brought to the U.S. in the 1870’s, and was widely grown in Wisconsin a century ago.  This flour has moderate protein, and excellent all-around baking qualities.     

 

Why Stone Ground?

Our flour is produced simply by grinding grain between two stones, a technique that is centuries old. Stone milling maintains the grain’s integrity to produce flour that is more fresh, flavorful and nutritious. 

Store in refrigerator. Best within 3 months – freeze for longer storage.     

Contact us ahead of coming out and we will leave your order in our farmstand.

How to Start a Garden

I know it’s snowing but now is the time to

start making plans to grow food!

Some things you can do while you wait for warmer weather:

Determine the amount of space you will have for planting. You will need to know how much space you have in order to decide how much of each plant you can grow. If you have never raised a vegetable garden, better to start small than to end up with a big garden that you can’t keep up with. The space you choose should have at least 6 to 8 hours of full sun.  There are a few vegetables that will grow with less but most require at least this amount.

Decide what type of garden will work best for you. Do you want slightly raised beds, fully raised container beds, individual containers or a traditional flat garden.

Make a list of what you like and maybe try something new! Once you have your list, start looking for seeds. Most garden vegetables are easy to plant directly into the garden from seed. We will have plants available for some of the things that need a head start in the greenhouse. My favorite source for heirloom varieties is Bakers Creek Heirloom Seeds. I also like High Mowing Seed and Seed Savers Exchange. It’s really easy to get carried away so try to stick with your list.

Some vegetables that are easy to grow directly from seed are green beans, lettuce, greens, radishes, peas, cucumbers, melons and pumpkins. 

We will have transplants available for sale when it is warm enough to plant. We grow a large variety of heirloom tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, eggplant, broccoli, cauliflower and cabbage. There is a complete list of tomato, pepper and eggplant varieties on our post about plants.

I will continue to add tips as the season gets closer.

Goat Milk Soap

Here is what the CDC says about soap for hand washing:

Regular soap and water clean germs away rather than killing them, but that’s still a key step in reducing infection, the CDC points out. Washing your hands with soap and water is one of the main recommendations for limiting the spread of the novel coronavirus, since it seems to spread primarily from person to person via respiratory droplets, which are often found on our hands and easily transferred to our faces.

Store shelves are also filled with products that boast antimicrobial properties, including antibacterial soap. There is a common misconception, however, that antibacterial soap is effective in eradicating all germs. Although antibacterial soap may kill some bacteria, there is little evidence that it’s more effective than regular soap, and it offers no additional protection from viruses.

In fact, many health experts advise against using antibacterial products, as many contain a potentially harmful ingredient called triclosan, which some research suggests is an endocrine disrupter. Moreover, overuse of these products may contribute to antibiotic resistance and the rise of so-called superbugs.

We have goat milk soap available for your hand washing pleasure! Our soap is gentle on your skin with a creamy lather to wash away dirt and germs.

$5.00 per Bar

Available scents are:

Rosemarry /spearmint

Lavender/Rosewood/ Patchouli w/oatmeal

Rosemarry/Lavender/Patchouli w/sea clay

Black Raspberry/Vanilla

Cherry Almond w/rose clay

Almond w/almond oil

Rosemarry/Lavender/Spearmint w/green tea

Grapefruit/ Bergamot/Ylang-Ylang with pink sea salt

Oatmeal with no scent

All of our soap is hand made on our farm using local goat milk, olive oil, coconut oil, local tallow, sustainable shea butter and castor oil & honey. Most have EO’s for the scent and those with fragrance oils are phthalate free. We use botanicals or natural pigments for color.

We also have 2 varieties of Lotion Bars in an easy to use tube.

Lotion Bar $14.00
Lavender or Sweet orange Ylang-Ylang

If you would like to stop and pick up some soap, let me know what you would like and I will leave it in our self service farmstand. No lines!

Surprise chore

Today’s surprise chore was adding fencing over the baby chicks. Yesterday we found 4 dead and a Coopers hawk in the barn. It was a pretty big job but we had some fencing that was donated last fall and prefer to prevent a future disaster while allowing the hawks to live their best rodent eating lives.

Whipped salve

This morning’s salve trial.

I used calendula infused olive oil, comfrey infused coconut oil, cocoa butter, beeswax, vitamin E oil and lavender and rosemary EO’s

I whipped it as it cooled because I prefer the texture. It doesn’t feel as greasy to me.

After I’ve used it for a few days, I plan to make a larger batch and will have it for sale.

Infusions

Today I strained the calendula blossoms from the olive oil leaving a beautiful golden oil.

I have some ground comfrey leaves that I harvested & dried in August infusing in coconut oil that will be combined with the calendula oil for a healing salve.
