Martin's Farmstand:  Sweet potatoes and onion storage


Hello again. An era is coming to an end. We are moving into fall and winter preparation. In front of the farmstand are lots of mums waiting to move to your front steps. We have not had a frost yet so there are still summer things such as beans, cucumbers, tomatoes and peppers left. There is lots of lettuce, spinach, radish and leeks. The big sweet potato harvest is planned for late this week. After they are dug and washed they need to be put in a warm (80-90 degrees) moist place for 7-10 days to cure for best storage. After they are cured then they can be stored in a dry airy place that stays warmer than 50 degrees. The onions and garlic are dry and ready to store. They also like a dry airy place but do not care if they are warm or cold (not freezing) with the one limitation that if they are stored cool (35-50 degrees) for a prolonged period then they need to be kept cool or they will sprout. This often happens in home storage that they are cool in the mid winter then in the spring the storage space warms up and the onions that are left sprout quickly.

The gardens are moving toward finish- patch by patch they are finished till spring.

A farmers life is characterized by a lot of waiting and patience. In the spring we tend to be impatient- it is so cold and wet. Then after things are planted we need to wait many days for the harvest.
If you are a gardener you have also probably noticed that plant growth is not linear. Little plants tend to grow very slowly for a number of weeks and then in a short time grow a great deal.
The farmers life is also characterized by a great deal of precision. Besides waiting we need the be prepared to act in a precise window of time when it is time to plant, harvest etc.
The seasons also come and go more than we tend to be aware of in the spiritual realms. If it is time to reach out and love someone, or listen to your child etc. do it now- tommorrow life has moved on. Daniel
