Chestnut baby

Remember last years chestnuts?

Despite being a tough year for farmers it was a great year for nuts.

So good actually that I now finished transplanting 33 mini trees growing from seed, unfortunately it got to dark to take a photo of the seedlings but it will come in our storyline tomorrow. 1-2 more years in a pot then there ready to move outside permanently for our new chestnut grove. When you propagate from seed it’s always a lot of diversity among the seedlings and hopefully we have some exceptional individuals that will like our colder climate here in Sweden

Banana house

Always nerve wracking testing something for the first time, growing bananas in a climate where it’s directly lethal for them most of the year keeps you in your toes. The new heater and thermostat keeps it nice and warm during the night and saves power during the day when the greenhouse is heated by the sun. It’s a fine line keeping it at the right temp so the plants survive but no more you don’t want them to grow more then necessary when they are cramped in too the small winter greenhouse.

New trees!

Indulging my self with some new trees

Two of my favorite varieties of Quince “Vranja” and “Leskovac” really hard and do well on our zon III heavy soils.

Autumn and early winter is a great period to plant trees if you only have the time which is usually the problem.

We had a record harvest this year of quince and are now hopping that these new trees will yield a nice harvest in a few years.

That time a year

That time a year

Lady is showing John how it’s done standing extra nice when he is shearing his first sheep 🐑

After all are done the vet is going to come for a health check and blood samples to make sure our sheep are absolutely healthy.

We shear our sheep two times a year and they always like it to get the old wool off. Shearing sheep is not hard but to do it fast and well takes experience and skill.

Freerange

Free range ducks enjoying the Sunday exploring the farm in The search for some nice worms and grubbs. Every day all day are the ducks outside or at least have the choice to be, rain nor sun stop a duck from looking for food. This is parts of our big breeding group of Blekingeducks and probably half of the purebred population in the whole world. They come in a multitude of colors and are unique adapted to the south Sweden climate. It’s also the best egg layer we figure out after trying multiple breeds but none measure up too this.

Calamondino

Got this beautiful Calamondino variegated a few weeks back and now it’s being prepared for winter, a new pot and proper garden soil I find is the best way to get them to thrive.

It’s going to spend the winter with our bananas and other citrus trees in the new greenhouse in greenhouse. A few fruit are already on the plant and what is extra interesting is that the green in mature fruit are stripped in shades of green

East Friesian Palm Kale

Time to look ahead for future summers, one of my favorite from this session was a new addition from @realseeds in the UK

East Friesian Palm Kale has everything you look for in a kale. It’s very vigorous and gets big despite us harvesting leafs during the summer and the flavor is the best both on the bigger and smaller leafs. It has a reputation for being really hardy and we are putting it to the test keeping them outside for the winter instead of overwintering them in the greenhouse good or bad spring will tell.

We select the 40-50 best plants when we grow seeds to insure that we have enough genetic diversity, this is really important if you grow your own seeds to maintain the good character of the variety. The work continues tomorrow with more plants being prepared for next years seed saving
