Swedish wasabi

From the forests of japan to a greenhouse in Sweden wasabi loves them both and after last years trial we are ready to broaden their numbers and try more varieties. It’s normally the stems that are harvest and graded too make the most classic of all sushi ingredients, but for that you need to kill the whole plant. But there is another way to get that experience and it the taste leafs and flowers, mild but still with that sting that perfect compliment to your asian dishes

Absolutely perfect

Spring is getting closer and the pigeons are getting prepared for the breeding season. Unlike our other birds pigeons produce milk that they feed too there young. The parents share the responsibility brooding the two eggs and too defended and feed the baby’s. We have the old Swedish breed Svensk Kråsduva that originated from farm pigeons. They all have the white body, short beak, ruffled feathers in their neck and on the front of their throat. The wings can have different colors and patterns but it never spills on too the body. Pigeons always find their way home back to their mate and babies. This is something people have used too send messages with homing pigeons.

King quail

Ever seen 2 dozen Chinese painted quail eggs? Now you have also named King quail these super small birds lay a lot of eggs and sometimes even try to brood them. They lay more eggs then the mum to be can sit on so we put the surplus in the incubator to build up our numbers, so far we only have a trio of one Male and two female plus after today 4 small chicks. I’m absolutely in love with these miniature eggs and hope to get some extra soon so I can try them. Mostly a ornamental bird I’m surprised how productive they are, a lot of different colormorfs exist so people have been breeding them for a long time. Everytime you get a new species it can take a few years too get to know them and what they like/ don’t like, so far so good but if you have any tips please leave a comment below

More then honey

When bees collect nectar from flowers they also pollinate them, as a bonus bees also bring back pollen to the hive an stores it in special wax comes. For the bees pollen is the best protein source and essential for the well-being of the hive. The value of the pollination in more and bigger fruits/berries are 10-15 times greater then the value of the honey 🍯 help the bees and become a beekeeper like us or become a shareholder in one of our apiaries. You stand with the farm sharing in the honey harvest, if it’s a good year you will have plenty of honey for your self and family , if it’s a hard year with cold and rain the yield is smaller but you support your beekeeper so instead of bankruptcy you they can keep going with saving bees

The unsung heroes

The unsung hero’s of today’s agriculture system are the ones that say NO!

No to letting the genetic diversity of our farm animals disappear.

No hybrid seeds that make farmers dependent on big business companies at the same time as we lose our history.

No to poisoning the world around us in an attempt to be the master over life and death.

It’s nog governments or big corporations that save our world it’s one farmers at the time waking up every morning and doing what is right not what is easy.

Support your local farmers stand up for what is right

Absolute beauty

Finally we get to harvest the Oca or New Zealand yams. Planted at the same time as our potatoes they need a long time to mature but in all honestly we have been harvesting leafs and shouts all summer for our salad mix. It truly is a dual purpose plant with delicious leafs and crispy roots. If you like to try this beutiful tubers we will offer a starter kit with several different varieties and colors on REKO Malmö next week and onwards as long as we have anything left

Next level garden

After getting mother stock of rhubarb from @klintatradgard a few years back we are now splitting the plants to make more plants, a big and very suitable variety that let you crop crisp tender leafs all season long in to autumn. 80 new plants in the first wave and more too be made when we finish harvesting from the adjacent beds. Our intern Iman from @kalo_okologisk_landbrugsskole and Caroline @holmafolkhogskola this after they finished the mammoth task of planting 18 k of garlic cloves

Säfstaholmskål from seed to seed

The most important crop of the year is finally in place

You may remember our greenhouse design from this spring, now after a season of tomatoes. After the frost we moved the greenhouse to a more prominent position in the garden and now our Säfstaholmskål is in place. Out of hundreds of plants we selected the best too go to my friend Matti to be used for growing seeds next summer. We also selected 42 plants that we are going to grow seeds on here at the farm. To protect them from the winter cold we put the greenhouse on top of them. In spring when the plants start to grow we lift the greenhouse off after they have proved shelter for our most important crop. Growing seeds isn’t just fun it’s also crucial for preserving our heritage varieties of vegetables
