Tulip Ice Cream

Big thanks for this anonymous gift that arrived in Friday’s mail 🙏
I definitely have a sweet spot for over the top tulips and the variety Ice Cream has it all 😍

No wonder Tulip mania happened in the Netherlands 17th century where people became obsessed with tulips and the price skyrocketed and a single bulb was sold for 10 times the annual income of a skilled craftsmen

I’m planting these ones now so they have a chance too sprout and be ready to flower in spring, a good way too protect your tulips from pests and fungi is too take them up after flowering letting the leafs dye back and not plant them again until the fall

My grandparents did this every year with tulips and daffodils planting the whole veggie garden in the fall that became a field of flower in spring too later be taken up give way for the vegetables.

Chinese Imperial peaches

Chinese Imperial peaches
A unusual favorite in our greenhouse is the Doughnut peach, originally from China but exists in more places now.

Our tree is originally a souvenir from the time as a gardening student traveling in Europe and I manage to locate a Oriane tree from the French horticultural research station INRA.

A dark red skin variety with white flesh very sweet with a hint of honey and super juicy, a medium too small tree very suitable for a small garden or greenhouse.

For more then 10 years no it’s been a centerpiece in our greenhouse and it really pulls it’s own weight, we will start grafting it this year now after the harvest and hopefully harvest some new trees next year

Extinct


This is the only remnant of the Swedish breed Moliljan originating from Småland and the village of Målilla not too far from where I’m originally from.

It belongs to a group of chicken breeds created by Sweden’s most prolific chicken expert Martin Silverudd.

Unfortunately what you see on this picture is not Moliljan but a mix breed, they originate from the last lead I came up with when it came to localize a pure breed flock

But regrettably I was too late and these flock was mixed with other chicken breeds making the offspring useless for conservation purposes

Artichoke premier


It’s been a funny year growing and testing new varieties of artichoke and seeing how they grow and the diversity in appearance.

If you look closely on them you can almost see the relation to thistles especially if you don’t harvest them in time and they start flowering

Dahlia abundance

Love red flowers and especially the varieties of heirloom dahlias that are in full bloom right now

Definitely more labor intense then most but equally rewarding now when they are in full bloom until the frost comes

Planting in early spring and covered with a layer of straw for the weeds then it’s just been too waiting until they are big enough and you see the first flowers In the beginning of July

The old heirloom varieties are very hardy and grow really big with a massive rootstock sometimes up too 20 kg of you don’t split them

In the fall after the frost I dig them up cutting off everything above ground then using a water hose too rinse of all the dirt then letting them dry for a day or two before taking them in too the root cellar for the winter.

Geese time

Man that talks with geese
Not so small any more but never too big for a chat with dad.

Geese are the smartest of all farm birds and have been used as guard birds for centuries, they know whom lives on the farm and is a friend and whom is a invaders.

Adults geese are dangerous with a strong beak from biting often drawing blood if they get a hold of skin, they also use their wings that a strong enough to break bones.

Adults male protecting his partner and offspring are the most fearless, fighting too the end even if it means dying to protect his family

Geese are very loyal too each other usually forming a pair or a trio with one male and two females that raise goslings together.

Some sources tell off geese 60 years and more but this is not verifiable but cases of 20 is not on common.

Having geese is like having the farm equivalent of a parrot that is very smart with a big personality and that will be around for a long time.
