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

Baby making

In five months this is what we are hoping for, today our rams 🐑 meet the ladies to both party’s delight. Now during the wettest part of the year our sheep trade the outside for a much more comfortable stable. The ewes are pregnant for 147 days and usually have two lambs but we have had mums that had 4 lambs two years in a row but that requires some extra help feeding them all. We don’t give our sheep pellets or grain only hay or silage complicated by mineral food and a saltlick. We also give them access fruits and vegetables as a treat

Lady and the lambs

A big responsibility being the teacher for our young ewes so the task falls to our oldest and most experienced lady

Sheep lives in flocks that’s lead by the older females, they pass on the knowledge to their lambs so if you have good leadership life is easy for us farmers. The Klövsjö sheep is one of Sweden’s heritage breeds and we are one off the oldest pureblood flocks we follow in the footsteps of our predecessors when it comes to conservation focusing on healthy sheep, excellent wool quality and good maternal instincts that in many cases are lost in modern breeds where you focus to much on meat

Respect the pigness of pigs

Know where your meat comes from and if you don’t take the vegetables option.

Meat consumption have skyrocketed but not because there are so much more good meat but because there are so much bad meat on the market. Precooked chicken from Thailand where you can’t guarantee food safety with out cooking before export. Or pork from Cyprus that have about 100 time higher use of antibiotics then Sweden

You don’t deserve bad food and your choices give animals a dream life outside with dirt on their snouts or hell inside a concrete box with out seeing daylight

Potatislök Maglasäte

Growing your own seeds is a manifestation of your belief in the future and that everyone can make a difference. This is something very special the still immature seeds of the potatoonion Maglasäte. Usually you cultivate them from onions much like potatoes but sometimes you are lucky and get a few plants that flower. By growing new business onions from seeds you can get rid of virus’s and fungus that infection your onions and it’s the only way to develop new varieties. A warm long summer is usually the best when you grow your own seeds

Look ate the bigger picture

Propaganda för en vegansk kost sköljer över med huvudargumentet att det skulle vara bra för miljön att inte äta kött, lite samma logik som att sluta dricka vatten för att människor drunknar ibland. Ekosystem ser till helheten av djur i samverkat med växter, svampar, jordmån, klimat och så mycket mer. Denna väv av liv som samexisterar rubbas av det extrema som bara växtodling utan djur decennium efter decennium samtidigt som djuren spärrad in bakom betong och stål uppfödda utan att se dagsljus. Lösningen är en holistisk kost precis som våra förfäder, en mångfald av råvaror från odlingar, djur, skog, sjöar och hav. Hitta det unika i ditt område, ät efter säsong och hitta lokala råvaror där hittar du också vägen framåt
