ROGUING POTATOES (AGAIN) THIS MORNING ON WOOD PRAIRIE FAMILY FARM. Megan drives the red Farmall tractor pulling the high-clearance Roguing Cart. Cassidy at left walks the potato rows. Kenyon and Jim – out-of-sight – work the other side of the flower bed.
The prominent Beneficial Insect Flowers blooming in this in-field Flower bed refuge this week are orange California Poppies and the remarkably prolific Beneficial Insect workhorse, ‘Phacelia’ (https://www.woodprairie.com/product/flower-seed-organic-phacelia-pkt/), with lavender blossoms. That single purple blossom towards the lower left is the first of our Cosmos, with many more on their way!
To Megan’s left, a lightly blossoming patch of Rose Gold potatoes and one nice row of Elba in full blossom. To her right are five more rows of Elba. Then many rows of Eliot Coleman’s favorite potato, ‘French Charlotte’ (https://www.woodprairie.com/product/organic-certified-charlotte-seed-potatoes/).
Last evening’s thunderstorms seemed to have broken the back of our heat wave. Today was sunny, warm, breezy and low humidity…as nice a Summer day as we get here in the great State of Maine. Caleb, Megan & Jim
