Smart experiment, Dan.  Potatoes take a while to emerge, and after they have, of course, you can just rake up some soil over them if a freeze threatens.

Daniel, if you slice the potatoes that were cut during the dig they will heal over and use be fine.

Spuds already, Daniel? And corn? Beautiful. How I would love to have a longer growing season!

Great photos, Daniel. I envy your corn. Mine is a bust.

While my nectarines and apricots got wormy (despite spraying with furit tree oil), pears and peaches and persimmons (the 3 P's) look good. Apples, not so great.

More rain last night. Enough already! It's also been too hot to work (weed) in the garden. I think I've lost control!

The latest newsletter from the Silverthorn-farm.com says it all. It's been a week of recovery. The only thing I did to help was to cut up an obstructive tree. I'll do more when it cools off--either this week or in the winter!

A persimmon happy dance.  A vision of joy.

Daniel, if we hurry really fast and set up production, we can make and market honey buckets!

Strawberries have taken-over a large part of the garden and produced a huge amount.  Two weeks ago I saw a lot of large red ones that looked ripe so I ate some.  Un-uh.  Not ripe.  Every couple of days I ate some, and still not ripe.

A week ago, a woman from the government organization that helps people with low income and seniors knocked on my door and ask if I wanted her to pick them for me.   It sounded like she saw that there were so many that looked so ripe, that were not being picked, that perhaps no one here was able to pick them.

I told her that I was able, and they did look ripe, but the taste said no.  Anyway, I then went out and picked a huge number of them because I didn't want her to think I was letting them go to waste. 

Shouldn't have cared what she thought because most of them were still not ripe.  They tasted like store bought ones.  Today, I tasted some and found a lot were finally ripe, so I picked another huge amount.  My raspberries are also starting to ripen, so I picked those also.  Yummy!

For newcomers, Randys family owned the ground for 175 years (correct me if I am wrong, Randy) and now is in the care of one of Randy's daughter's family. Their newsletters are the best I have seen and their farm looks carefully planned and managed. Here is their newsletter address:

Randall, sorry about the loss of trees and greenhouses your family experienced.

Comment by Randall Smith on June 26, 2016 at 6:26am
Spud, I have the same problem with dill weed in my garden. I usually allow some of it to go to seed so I can harvest it, but invariably, many seeds go to the ground. Sunflowers do the same.
