The Tiniest Pickles I've Ever Seen and a Big Morning Harvest | VLOG | Roots and Refuge Farm

Yo. Down here in the south. Fried is a staple. Yummy 😋
Are you going to grow "Tom Thumb corn, lettuce, tomato in the childrens garden? And what about "Minnesota Midget melons?
Omg I absolutely love my cucamelons. I seen and heard about them from the Migardener channel and I thought they were so fricken adorable i had to try them this year. I only had to that germinated and they are vining out like crazy. The neighborhood kids absolutely love them also. I won't be able to can any this year or try to preserve them just because I love it when the kids come and eat fresh vegetables and it's good for them. So i always have a couple different things I grow specifically just for them to try and they do and when they see how much better it tastes homegrown and then they ask to help plant next year and they come over and help water.... I love it and the fact to get more kids involved with gardening is awesome also. So next year I'll plant separated out ones that they can have specifically and then some for me. :)
Top 3 things I love about your videos.
#3 So much info in a format that is simple and easy to follow
#2 Exposure to awesome uncommon varieties of things to grow (hope to grow those blue golds next yr.)
#1 The way you capture the emotional component of what we do, which inevitably makes me tear up.
Much love and respect
I would have quit gardening for life if I came across that spider lol
❤️ that spider creeped me out also.........but it is a good spider to have, I learned after I sprayed one in my yard. 😟
A day will come when you will be alone a lot .
I spend 12-14 hours alone every day. It's nice to have Gods animals n birds to tend so really not alone.
Not many humans here.
And “Hi” to you too Ezra!
We did water bath can these last year and they did great - my favorite thing we grew last summer! Added some purple jalapeno, home grown garlic, dill seed, etc. Delicious! Also the best snack while weeding besides brassica flowers 😊
I totally made fried okra as an "afternoon snack" a few days ago! 😂😂😂😍😍😍
I've seen a few of your videos and have to say the yellow pear cherry tomato isn't my fave. Tastewise it's not that exciting. I like Sungold and Sweet Million and a few others of the medium and larger but harder to grow large ones in Seattle are where I live. Your garden is so amazing. And yup that is a mega ton of produce to process. I have that grateful and overwhelmed at the same time feeling too. Picking, processing, maintaining, saving seed, thinking ahead to a fall garden...eek. So crazy. I look forward to seeing what you did with the cherry toms. I heard you say you'll be dehydrating them. What do you do with the dehydrated tomatoes later when ready to use them?
I recently started storing my seeds in 5 gallon food grade bucket with a tight fitting lid, even tho airtight would be better. I also have several little tin file boxes. Since sunflower seeds take a lot of room, I had been using large manila envelopes. Until a small mouse squeezed thru my storage bin lid and nearly ate them all. The plastic file envelopes look much better. Sunflower seeds are mice magnets. I store gardening things, such as twine, net, stakes, stacks of small pots, and peat pellets in the storage bins. Several years ago, I forgot that I had dropped about 2 lbs of sunflower seeds in a plastic bag in the bin until I could get them put up. I forgot about them and stored it in the shed that winter. A very large rat chewed a hole in the bin and nested there all winter and ate all my seeds. When he jumped out, it nearly scared me to death.
I grew cucamelons for the very first time this year with terrible success. It grew like crazy in the greenhouse, but when I moved the outside (didn't transplant) it seemed like it had transplant shock. I'm not sure what happened.
How do you eat Ochra? I have never seen it before. is it like a pepper?
New subbie from Memphis, TN. This is my first season gardening. Thanks to this vid I am going to try some radishes and carrots along with other greens for my winter garden. Looking forward to watching your other vids.
I feal like a stalker I just can't get enough of you and your farm oh my gosh I have learned so much from you
This is my second year trying to grow cucamelons. Last year the seeds I bought were bad and only one germinated, then the slugs got to it. This year, new seeds, I had around 6 plants, thought they were big enough the slugs wouldn't be a problem. Man, was I wrong. lol Only have one left, but as promised I gave it to my neighbours three year old grandson, so the little man is going to hopefully have a taste of these this year. :)
How are you picking tomatoes in shorts and a t shirt girl?! They all make my skin burn immediately on contact, my sunflowers and squash too. What do you do for that??
Have you considered eating raw foods? You grow plenty of fruits that you could make all kinds of raw salads out of, its great for your health to eat raw fruits and veggies! (I'm sure you know) Cooked foods, even vegetables cooked tend to wreak havoc on our body. Did you know when you eat cooked food your body recognizes it as a "foreign" object which is why your body temperature raises when eating cooked foods, and also why you get sleepy if you eat a lot at once. Since finding your channel and learning so much, I've had so many more tomatoes growing and have incorporated them raw into my diet to avoid having to process them so much.
I just thought you would enjoy the information, I felt I needed to leave this here in the comments.
Look up Ellen Fisher & Fully Raw Kristina on Youtube they are who inspired me to eat my veggies raw as much as possible. Granite I do tend to add a little salt & pepper mix to the tomatoes.. hahaha
We grew the tiny cucumbers this year. The kids love them! You have so many tomatoes, WOW.

Agro Space

Agricultural economics refers to economics as it relates to the "production, distribution and consumption of [agricultural] goods and services".

The word agriculture is a late Middle English adaptation of Latin agricultūra, from ager, "field", and cultūra, "cultivation" or "growing".
