Ohiofarmgirl's Adventures in The Good Land is largely a fish out of water tale about how I eventually found my footing on a small farm in an Amish town. We are a mostly organic, somewhat self sufficient, sustainable farm in Ohio. There's action and adventure and I'll always tell you the truth about farming.

Come on potatoes!

This is what potato success looks like.....


Come on potatoes! Grow, grow, grow!


And some radishes too...


Happy Sunday everyone! Whatcha got popping up?

That's what my potatoes look like too! I just filled in their beds a little yesterday and need to top with more straw.

I have brassicas like broccoli and cabbage growing, onions, and carrots. Just set out some tomatoes and peppers yesterday, frost-free date be damned.

How long does it take for potatoes to get leaves? I planted mine a week ago or so. I started radishes, too, but also around a week ago, so they are much smaller.

I have a lot of tomatoes, some cucumbers and beans.

And hi! I'm Natasha, also from Ohio. I've enjoyed reading your adventures! On a side note, I have also bought from Springhill Farm. We've tried the sausage, so far (delicious) and I just ordered chickens because we aren't ready to add chickens to our menagerie just yet (I have an 11 month old and I'm approximately a month away from having my second child). I hope we can add them in a year or two.

Our potato's are looking about the same as yours. Love seeing them pop through. The beets are coming on great as well. :) So far...success!!

I'm waiting on my lettuces, flat leaf Italian parsley & radishes. I started some babies of swiss chard, & collard greens. Summer garden coming soon!

If you plant vegetables when the ground is still frozen do you get frozen veggies? You know, like the ones in the store?

Hey, what is up with the .au (Australia) address?

This is only the second year we've tried potatoes and they look MUCH better this year! Also have some lettuce, spinach, broccoli, onions and carrots in the garden and some peppers and tomatoes starting in the greenhouse!

yay Rachel! great work! i think that whole frost date is kind of a scam you know.. plant away!

hi Wildcard! thanks for reading :-D so these taters went in the ground about 2 weeks ago. i have them heavily strawed in so i just noticed that they were popping up. and i'm so glad you are a Springhill customer! dont you love their products?

HDA - i've got to get my beets in! thanks for the reminder, for all my beet-emergency planning i really need to get them planted.

hi Ian! sorry the checker thing was giving you fits. Rhubarb is my favorite but mine goes directly to bolt. :-(

superDUPER, Nancy - all great work! wow you've been busy. when will you get your maters in?

yes, CC, thats exactly how it happens. i'm soooooo sorry for all your snow-woes. ugh!

and i dunno about the .au address...i get that sometimes in my stats :-/ but nope i havent moved to the land down under (dare you not to sing that! ha!)
