Solo’s weekly picks: Farms

avatar

Having land to grow food on is something quite valuable. So is sharing knowledge on how you grow it, and updates about living the farm life along the way. Hive is an excellent way for farmers to share their agricultural skills, and talk about what goes on in their daily life. This week I take a look at some posts by farmers. We will see some food updates by a farmer in Ghana, a post about horses in Goshen, Ohio.. a post about farming in Bangladesh, growing corn in Venezuela, and a chicken update in the United States.

Here are five Hive posts by plankton and minnows about farms:


Mid July farm update another month gone like that by @leifasaur

Basil and Dill has been quite the successful crop for this grower in Ghana.. They are currently farming three varieties of Basil. His wife helps planting as well, so its a group effort making it all happen there.


The Horses Are Out by @farrier.services

Due to a recent hurricane, lots of the roads near this farm are closed. They needed to travel to another horse farm near by. Crews were out clearing the roads, and they got through it eventually. But when they arrived at their destination no one was there… oh man


End of May farm update. By @jibon07

https://peakd.com/hive-148441/@jibon07/end-of-may-farm-update

With lots of rain, removing weeds can be quite the chore. They are trying to minimize how many chemicals they use on this farm, so it makes it harder to manage. But I am sure the customers are glad to have food that is safer to eat with less pesticides and herbicides. They have been trying to mow them, and also let them just grow a little higher than you would see at a home. But with many garden beds they had lots to grow, some with fresh seeds. Others with established plants.


[ENG-ESP] In the absence of very little time for the completion of the Maize Challenge 2022/A falta de muy poco tiempo para la finalización del Maize Challenge 2022 by @hjrrodriguez

https://peakd.com/hive-197995/@hjrrodriguez/eng-esp-in-the-absence

Growing Maize, a type of corn normally grown for farm animals to eat. But you can also make various types of food with it as well for people to eat. They started some soy beans as well recently and they are just starting to come up.


My Actifit Report Card: July 18 2022 by @allentaylor

https://peakd.com/hive-193552/@allentaylor/actifit-allentaylor-20220719t030432279z

One of the neighborhood dogs got their roosters, they saw it happen and tried to chase them off but did not have their gun at the time. In the future they plan to shoot any dogs that show up on their property planning on harming their chickens.


Thats my five picks for this week, come back next week to see Solo's next weekly picks. I curate posts every Tuesday and do this through MSP. Thanks so much to the Minnow Support Group for giving me the opportunity to serve as a curator!

Yes, it is regularly for the animals, but here in my country, Venezuela, we use the tender one for a typical meal, which very soon I will be able to show you and thus teach you everything related to our culture.

Cool compilation! With the prices going through the roof everywhere these days, being able to grow one´s own fruits and veggies is such a blessing. Congrats everyone featured here, good job guys! :)

Thanks for the mention. Ironic that I'm mentioned in a post about farming because that specific post was an Actifit report. I included the story about the dog and the chickens because it was a part of my activity for the day. lol
