The Vegetable Garden Update

We've been busy at the farm with planting, weeding, and cultivating. 

While cultivating, we came across a couple of potato plants that up rooted. Plenty of baby red potatoes were underneath. We dug a row and came across some almost full sized Red Norland potatoes! If you have some planted at home, you might want to check on a few of yours if you're so inclined. There's nothing better than the first of the season, new potatoes! 

Our listeners also had questions about what they could re-plant in their vegetable gardens after seed did not germinate in the high temperatures/ lack of rain or hail. 

You can continue to plant or re-plant these: 

'Bolero' carrots- very sweet (one of our favorites), we plant them in July and they're ready in the Fall

Green Beans


Lettuce- plant in very late Summer/ early Fall 

Radishes- plant in very late Summer/ early Fall 

& More! 

We also harvested our first large tomatoes of the season. This variety is Italian Heirloom and is one of the best tomatoes for sandwiches and canning. They have a rich tomato flavor, easy to peel, and produces throughout the season. We purchase our seeds from Seed Savers Exchange in Decorah.
