    2018 Farm Journal

    Last year I thought about creating a farm journal for the bemusement of Pit readers. So as long as you keep interest, and I keep at it, you can spend the year on my farm. Needless to say there isn't much to do this time of year, feeding the hogs is the only daily task, but I kicked it off the past couple of days by getting my onion seed started. This is a first for this year as in past years I just buy plant starts from Dixondale Farms in Texas. I start with a 1020 flat and line it with newspaper to keep soil from falling through. Then I add loosely packed potting soil and sprinkle seed (like peppering your steak) followed by tamping the soil firm with my open palm. I cover the seed with vermiculite, a light spray of water, and finish with a plastic wrap to keep the seed bed moist. Then it goes onto my seed racks which are just Costco shelves that have had grow lights suspended over the shelves. Hopefully in the next fortnight I'll have onions breaking through. Maybe tomorrow I'll drag the camera around when I grind feed and slop hogs.

    While uploading the photos I realised that some of you background watchers would be wondering. Yes, that is the washroom in my house. I used the bath to mix soil and clean trays. A towel on the countertop was where I put the flats together. The racks are in the 'dining room'. I had to move the large stainless table that we use to butcher on to the front porch to make room for them.

      Still too early here for other vegetables. Hopefully the onions will be ready to move to the greenhouse to make room for those seed starts.

    Very cool. My granddad was a producer farmer all his life, dad didn't carry on (not that I blame him). Mom & Dad did have a boarding stable to support their own horse habits just down the street from my grandparents. I am definitely interested in following along.

    I like the way you utilize the entire house for your project. Reminds of a roomie I had back in the day who had transmissions in the bath tub and the 396 heads from his Chevelle in the kitchen sink because he didn't want to leave parts outside in case it rained!

      Some are already in, the strawberries are perennial and the garlic was planted in the fall. Still too early for other vegetables, but we'll have cucumbers, tomatoes, corn, peas, beans, squashes, melons, lettuces, beets, and celery.

    Me and my Boy started some Peppers last Weekend while my girls were in NYC. I will see how it goes, I also ordered my Seedlings which will ship April 9th. Are those regular Flourescents? Do you know if Led lamps will work?

      It's been a couple of years since I put it together. In my research I did find LED light systems that use various colour lights. They are expensive and I needed at least eight lights and can use ten. I was able to find florescent fixtures for $20 each and I got a box of tubes at Home Depot for a song. If you do get them make sure they are 6500K.

      Pirate Scott A Google search will produce vast amounts of information, however most of it will be geared towards growing marijuana indoors. The time my seedlings spend on the racks are short, once they get started they move to a greenhouse and then the field. Here's one article on LED http://www.kessil.com/horticulture/p...ons_201009.php

      Since legalisation a few years ago the 'grow op' industry has suffered in Washington. And it is no longer in the shadows, I pass no less than four farms and five retailers on a trip to Spokane. The old Costco building in Spokane is now an indoor farm. Wrong thread for the coolie. Just for you'll I'll post one there.

        That Kubota M series is my main workhorse, his name is 'Clyde' after the Clydesdale horses. I also have a Kubota B series named 'Bonnie' because that goes with Clyde. My first tractor, which I still have but sits idle, is a Ford Jubilee.

      I took some pictures of the hogs and their feed this morning. I mix 9kg of barley with 2.25kg of cull peas and a mineral mix in a cement mixer that gets dumped into a can, which then gets dumped into a grist mill.

      But first they get some 'pea pellets'', which is cull peas and chaff ground and pressed into pellets. Both the pellets and cull peas come from Spokane Seed. The barley get from a local farmer, but it was too wet for him to get his fields planted last year, so after I got all I could from him I have to go to the nearest grain elevator, which is in Davenport, WA until barley harvest this summer.

      The pellets keep everybody busy with something to chew on while I dole out the grain. Patience is not a virtue with hogs.

      A fortnight ago I slaughtered a heifer for a neighbour. I started butchering last Saturday and finished up today. First day was getting it to primal cuts, which filled the refrigerator and three meat lugs that sat on the porch.

      I needed a rest on Sunday, took it back up Monday getting the final cuts done. By the end of the day it was all sealed with three meat lugs of trimmings remaining.
