This week we have been focusing on keeping our birds healthy and the weeds at bay. With all the rain and heat we’ve been having it’s extremely important to keep the weeds down for reduce competition with your crop and increase airflow. This helps with reducing plant disease. That being said, our hemp field is doing BEAUTIFULLY! While we do use organic plastic for the rows, weeds still appear in the paths between them and if those weeds grow too large they can block sunlight, airflow, and can harbor a lot of unwanted pests. With two whole days of work we got the weeds down to see an amazing field of bushy hemp plants!
While it has been hot during the day, there has been a lot of rain at night. Such a steady and sudden amount of rain caused us to change this week's plans on a dime and fix up our potato digger! With the recent rains it's become important for us to harvest all of our potatoes as, with such wet soil, the potato digger gets clogged. See, the digger has an angled blade that reach down under the potatoes and the soil gets lifted to a shaker basket. This releases the soil leaving behind potatoes on top of the soil. As this is happening l, someone walks behind and collects the harvest!
