    Jace and I planted another row of potatoes, this time we planted one 80' row of Yukon gold. This will be the first time I've ever planted this potato variety, will be interested to see the results.

    Been enjoying the spring time weather around here, most recent video we did was of my Son and I rescuing a tired ole Farmall Super A from a barn just outside of town. Older gentleman passed away some years back and the tractor just sat idle for years. Once the property changed hands my son was...

    I want a pair of goats

    Things i found out very quickly when i became a goat owner..... They are like rambunctious kids, love to play, and do things they know ticks you off. Fencing, make it pig tight and bull strong. Disbud or buy polled stock, I will never own another goat with horns. They are dangerous even when...

    Felt real good outside this weekend, me and young grasshoppa were able to get the first of many new raised beds built and installed. I'm still working on getting it filled up with compost, but Im in no hurry, my peppers won't be able to go out for another 4-6 weeks.

    We've had some great weather here past few days, the nights are still a little cool, had frost this morning, but for the most part temps have been hovering around the mid 60's during the day. After the potatoes were in the ground we jump on the english peas. I planted a variety called Mr.Big. I...

    I tried to document as much of the planting as i could so at harvest i could tell if any of the spacing made a difference for the good or bad. I think after the initial planting the workload will be the same, im hoping to do most of the cultivating with the tractor, thats not a big deal, side...

    Friday and Saturday me and Jace got our Red Norland seed potatoes planted. We ended up with 3 rows 80' long. I started planting the seed potatoes with a 1' seed spacing. After the first row I stretched them out to 16" or so to insure we had enough to get through all 3 rows. Now this is certainly...

    Thanks guys, it's coming along nicely. The guys came back Saturday and installed the granite counter tops, and it just brings everything together. I have to give all the color coordination credit to my wife, she picked out all the colors including the wall paint and the floor tiles. She even...

    Major, the new light showed up friday afternoon, and i slapped in the bottom shelve of the grow rack. It has 8 rows of Led's in it on 2 switches so you can run 4 lights, or all 8. It is very, very bright not so much a multicolor light, but more of a pure white light. The lamp does generate a...

    Growing Potatoes - Zone 4

    Most root vegetables dont respond well to transplanting, You could sprout them indoors, like in a cup of water and transplant them outside and they would do ok. If you had them in soil and dug them up and replanted i dont know if they would fair to well. I've never tried.

The way I do it in Grow Zone 7B (Lol)....And I plant Red Norland Potatoes so all of this information is...

    Major, after our conversations about lighting for germination, i took your advice and purchased a nice full spectrum grow light. The immediate response to the lights from just the lettuce starts ( only thing left after the initial burn up, more on that in my garden thread soon) was incredible. I...
