First Potatoes

A long time has passed since we last wrote about the farming. But that does not mean that nothing has happened. In fact, it is quite the contrary. During this time the crop has grown really great.

The field of hay that I sowed in May has turned from brown to green (you can see parts of it behind Johan). Since it was done this year, it has not been harvested, instead it will wait until next year. But it looks good and I think both the wood gas tractor and I did a good job.

The potatoes have grown perhaps better than we expected. Also the carrots, beetroots, Swedish turnips, lettuce, etcetera that Johan planted in May has grown well. We picked some of the potatoes and the other root vegetables by hand and made a great carbon neutral dinner consisting of turnip mash, vegan Scotch collops, root beet salad and a green salad. Well, some of the ingredients, for example the pieces of quorn, tomatoes and oat cream, we had to by in the grocery store. But since the dinner contained no meat, and the ingredients we bought were rather locally produced, it became a dinner with a low negative impact on the environment. It tasted really well too and I must say it looked wonderful with all the bright colours, donít you agree?
