The Best Tips for Growing a Huge Potato Harvest

I have grown these daikon radishes before as a cover crop, but I had no idea you could eat them I don’t know what I was thinking but I was in publix the other night the big grocery store in town and they had daikon Radishes in there for sale and they was getting an outrageous price for them, what a few dollars Bunch, so I’m thinking to myself I’m fixin to get rich. Yeah, them things were expensive. Now they was bigger than mine Mine’s about half grown, but they was huge and these will get huge but man that’s a lot of radish right there They sell them with the top. No No, they just sell just the root and had them wrapped in cellophane And I’m just purely amazed me you can probably get even more dollars for them if you sold them with tops on them right there. Yep You tried one? No, but I’m going too. Right now, yeah Like a big old white carrot aren’t they. Yep What you think, it ain’t as spices as them other ones It ain’t near as spicy as them other ones, it’s got a good flavor more like a turnip They don’t have the spiciness. I’ve heard of folks getting high dollar for these things Yeah, that’d make a mean cover crop Anyways, let’s say hey, hi to everybody. Hello. Hello everybody and welcome to the row by row gardening show I’m Travis, and I’m Greg and we’re excited you joining us this evening. We’ve got a great show planned for you We’re gonna talk about there’s a little spice in the back in there Yeah, but it ain’t bad Anyway, we’re gonna talk about planting taters tonight Have our Show and Tell segment gonna answer some questions at the end of the show And if you have any questions during the show always put those in the comments and we will get to them on next week’s show Back to the daikons real quick so The reason these things make such an awesome cover crop Is because the map think of these things as like a tine on a broad fork So you can use something like a broad for it to aerate your soil or whatever especially if you’ve got hard soil and you got these things just if you plant them thick enough, I mean every couple inches their aerating the soil Another thing they do cuz they they’ll get twice as long as what this yeah they’ll get real long here and what they’re doing is they’re pulling Basically, they’re absorbing all these nutrients from way down deep where you would never get and then they’re concentrating them all in this unit Right here. And then when you till them in you’re releasing them nutrients so it’s a way to kind of It’s like a nutrient well, it’s a bank a nutrient bank. That’s right Now when you go to till these things in they till up real good so you don’t have any problem getting rid of them It’s one of my favorite cover crops and they break down pretty quick, break down quick. This is a must-do for a cover crop in the wintertimes daikon Daikon radishes and you could do these as the early spring cover crop to yep but the tops are really pretty and That’s good stuff right there and my mustard cover crop I tilled it in the other day got all those Glucosinolates release we did, you know, we was talking about how there was the best way to do all that so I took my tiller and just tilled it in I did it all at once and it worked really well, broke it up put it underneath the dirt there and it didn’t Take me no time So I think for the home gardener tilling that mustard in is going to be the key cause a lot of people don’t have Access to a flail mower and then come behind it with a harrow if you do that’s probably ideal too, we talk you got 20 minutes To do it to capture those gases, but tilling it in worked well for me did one pass No, I made about three passes of it. See that’s where I messed up I just did one pass and I should’ve did several. I stayed with it stayed with it, course You got that fancy new tiller. It does a little better job than old Troy does. Yeah. Yeah But I should have went over mines few more times to chop it up. So I got mustard greens Turned in and I’m gonna let it decompose for a few days. I’m gonna use that for my tater planting spot. Yeah, okay So I’m getting juiced up about tater planting. Juiced up yeah, you want to wait a couple weeks after you till in that mustard Yep. Yep, cuz if you plant right behind it, you’re going to have some problems gonna gas up and kill your Seed, that’s right, and we’re gonna talk about tater planting today. Well, you got your shallots planted already I did and I went when I was at grocery store there other night plunging around in the produce section I found me some shallots, and I’ve never eat a shallots, cause I planted mine the other day and I wanted so I bought me three three shallots Uh-huh, and I come home and I cooked them last night put them, I diced them up, I put them in olive oil put a little lemon juice in there Excuse me, and I sauteed them and then they do have a different flavor profile than the onion does. Mm-hmm It’s it’s a sweeter and it’s not like a non burning sweet like the Vidalia, but it is a sweeter flavor

Than an onion is hmm, so in stews and soups and things like that. I could see what that flavor profile would be Beneficial over an onion. Okay, so I’m gradually becoming a shallot fan, good deal, good deal and I got me three rows planted by the way I’m gonna plant me some maybe tomorrow if not this weekend and shoot a little video on it I think I’ve got a neat little trick up my sleeve of how I’m gonna get these shallots from My hand to the dirt. We’ll see how it works on the video Did you happen to I know you don’t always watch all the videos I post but Iwatch some of them did you did you watch the one we posted yesterday? I did so Then if you if you haven’t seen the video we post the video yesterday We were posing the question if you could only have five hand tools to work your vegetable garden with what would you pick and I Picked five on the video and you can go check that out on our YouTube channel And I just wanted to get your thoughts if you could replace one or yeah I would swap one out and there was couple people mention this on the group. I think the wheelbarrow I’d have to put it in there I liked your pick, but I’d have to replace one of them with the wheelbarrow, what would you take out for the wheelbarrow? Uhh Maybe the batwing I don’t know. Okay just not have a hoe. Oh, I Cuz you know you can only have five, it’s tough. That’s tough. But I definitely would work the wheelbarrow in there somewhere. I don’t know I’d have to stay up one night think about that one because if you take out the shovel the wheelbarrow ain’t gonna do you much good if you ain’t got a shovel. Right, Right. We got to have a digging fork, yeah, and a rack, Yeah Yeah, I don’t know I just just like my wheelbarrow Yeah, I like my wheelbarrow too, but I was thinking if it only five it was only five a hard times. I could use buckets and haul Yeah I could if it was hards times I could get by without it but it sure does make it easy on an old man. That’s right so check that out and we’d like to hear everybody thoughts on that put your top five or what five you’d pick in those comments on that video and We really look forward to hearing from you there Today’s show we’re talking about taters Taters, taters, taters before we get into that. Let’s let’s Let’s show this drum roll. We’re gonna have you gonna have to do cam one, a cam one. Okay so our 2019 catalogs are here and everybody see that and They should be hitting mailboxes Maybe as of the airing of this video if not the next few days If you ordered from us in the last, actually if you’ve ever ordered from us You’ll should be receiving one if you’ve requested a catalog within the last year You should be receiving one If you don’t think you follow into either of those categories you scroll to the bottom of our home page at Hosstools.com there’s a button there says request a catalog You can get put on the list there and usually within a couple weeks. We’ll have you one so this is our 2019 catalog a lot of good stuff in here we open we started off with some seeds in there There’s about four pages of seeds now because this catalog can only be so big We just kind of picked our our favorites to put in the first couple pages there if you want to see the whole selection Go online for that. Cause we’ve got a lots more seeding we add more every day, right We can only put so much stuff in this catalog we can put everything on the website. So this is Kind of as a teaser you go on the website. You’ll see absolutely everything So we’ve got our drip irrigation we’ve got new attachments in there you got your high arch in there, which is Becoming ever so more popular All kind of good stuff in there So if you get the catalog take a look at it, if not go ahead and request you one and we’ll get one sent to you Now on to the taters so last week we Gave everybody the news we was carrying taters and we got them on the site I think as a Friday we got four varieties. You want to recap those real quick. We got the red, you got a knife I don’t have a knife on me. Do I have a knife Dag-gone right I have a knife, let’s cut them open so we got four varieties we’ve got the Yukon Gold Which is a got a nice yellow flesh on it Which is which is in my opinion the go-to tater makes real big taters. We’ve got the Adirondack blue, Adirondack blue now if you got kids or grandkids in your family You’ve got to grow a few of these now that would this be the only tater that I grow, no but I would definitely throw some in the mix because you could make you some blue mashed potatoes out of that and That’ll really be a trick for them youngsters

They’d like to see that kind of stuff or you can fry them whatever, but it’s really entertaining To cook some of these up and they’re good So the Adirondack blue then we got the red Norland which is an improved variety of red tater Or with a white skin on there. That’s your new potato. That’s your new potatoes. Everybody wants to grow the white potato So there is your white potato if you’ve got to have a white tater and then the last one here It’s called the German butterball and this is, this the one that got the butter built in right there Okay, now this is a smaller potato it’s good for roasting and things like that It’s kind of probably a little bit higher flavor profile. I use that on a lot now, flavor profile But it’s a good tater right there Okay, so we’ve got those four. We’ve got two more coming that are on backorder We’ve got those four now and a note about the potatoes In case you don’t know you can’t ship Taters if it’s freezing outside if they freeze they will ruin so as it says on the website We will ship them as soon as we can and by that we mean We look at the weather that morning if we can if we can get them to you in time we will so and the reason why we decided to carry potatoes because 90% of the companies that sell seed potatoes are from up north And us people down in south when we get ready to order seed potatoes. They cannot ship them to us So we’re able to bring them in here and ship them out to these people in them southern zones like zone 7, zone 8, zone 9, zone 10 We can ship them out to you when they can’t and you can get them and give them in the dirt Then you go to any other seed company online and they’ll tell you we’re not gonna ship start shipping taters to April 19th Or something like that and by that time we should have we got them up and done laid them by one time. That’s right So we wanted to give the opportunity For the southern growers to have potatoes earlier and then also as temperatures warm for the northern growers as well I will say that we do have a I won’t say a limited supply but when we’re out we’re out so if you if you Want them and ready to plant them You can go ahead and order them and then we’ll ship them when we can which would be before your plant date I can promise you that I don’t even care if you’re in zone 10 If you need some potatoes you go ahead and order them and we’ll get them out to you We do have a trick or two of our sleeve if we think it’s going to get too cold We might could work something out. The deal you need to remember if you order from us, you gonna get them in time. That’s right That’s right. We’re gonna talk about potato planting dates, too. I’ll show everybody this so My main man here Greg has been back there packing taters It’s not something I want to do full-time by the way, and this is we have each of those four varieties We have them in 10-pound 25 pounds and 50-pound bags This is a 10-pound bag just to give you an idea what it looks like that’s plenty enough for 40-foot row of taters, if not a little more, you know, 25 pound bags gonna be two and a half times size that and 50 pound bags gonna look like a feed sack or you go in with your neighbor and order your bigger sack split them won’t cost you quite as much a little better deal So if you got a neighbor or two that does like to plant potatoes Y’all go in together figure out what you need and put that order in split them up. That’s a good idea there Okay, so let’s get into more specifics about growing potatoes and planting potatoes Of these four varieties here when you do some research online Every potato variety has kind of a different date of maturity. You’ll see some that they call an early variety some you’ll see Early to mid, mid to late, late so forth. So I kind of want to go over that with the varieties we have here So the typically you’re red taters With a white center like this Red Norlin here. Are your early potatoes They’re the ones they’re gonna come in quicker than any of the others about 85 days. And then as you move on down the line What they call kind of early to mid would be this one here the Adirondack blue and that’s going to be 90 day tater Yukon Gold it’s kind of what they call a mid or mid to late and that’s gonna be a 100-days And this here German tater German butterball. We talking about a 110-days on it So with that being said taters don’t like real hot temperatures, mkay With these because they don’t take as long to grow You got a little more leeway with your planting time with something like these late varieties like the German butterball You want to get them in as soon as you can when you planting these Also, make sure you understand when you’re planting them you plant these at the same time You’re gonna dig these about a month later than you’re gonna dig these Which works out really good for a lot of people a lot of times I plant so many taters

I can’t get out there and dig them all in one day so I’ll Dig a row of these one week and then a couple of weeks down the road dig these, so what I did Last year was I planted one row of each variety. That’s what I like to do and I had them come in at different times and then you dig one a week that way you just Just don’t burn you out getting out there all day and you’ve got fresh taters along and along. That’s right so something to consider there that the timeline of the maturity on the taters and how you might want to strategize your planting Now let’s talk about planting or getting ready to plant potatoes now this is something I like to do in the shop I like to get me a five-gallon bucket and I like to sit on it and I get my knife out and I got me a five-gallon bucket in front of me and I got my old dog laying there beside of me and I’m having a peaceful moment me and my dog and I’m cutting up taters and that’s the way I like to do it. Yeah, that’s a good way to do it now Let’s talk about I’ve seen I will see people on videos from time to time planting whole taters So let’s talk about the advantages and disadvantages of cutting them. If you do plant, let’s get this Yukon Gold for instance If you plant this whole tater right here it’s gonna grow a tater plant just as if you cut it Well, what’s going to happen is you’re gonna get a bunch of little taters You’re gonna get more potatoes because you got more buds planted But it’s going to be overcrowded there and they all kind of gonna kind of be small So if you like lots of small taters you can plant the whole one We’ve always because we like to stretch our seed taters out further We cut them up and we usually what’s the rule, we leave two to three, two to three eyes per piece You could probably cut this piece one more time. And this one one more time and If you want the big taters, you need to cut them up like that and that’s going to give them plenty of room Because you’re only dealing with two to three sprouts per piece there. Now your grandmother’s 92 years old. Mm-hmm Great grandmother, great grandmother, she’s great grandmothers 92 years old She come up through the depression that she’d have pure fit. If you didn’t cut those eyes out and save the middles to cook That’s what they used to do is they would cut the eyes out and they would cook those they still would have taters to cook and they was real peculiar about not wasting any and to this day She has sort of has a fit when you go to cutting up seed taters about not saving that inside there because it was just that hard of a times back in the day they used to Be real peculiar about cutting them eyes out No We don’t do that anymore because times ain’t like they used to be but I always thought that was interesting that times was that Hard that you had to get a meal out of your seed potatoes. Hmm Well, there would be a little bit of a law of diminishing returns there because you got to give it enough This is kind of what it’s living off of why it’s forming a plant but I mean it was just that hard them times were hard, hard times When we cut these potatoes you want to make you’ve got to plan ahead several days Before you plant them when you cut them You got to give them time to heal over or what they call the suberize Suberize now in the past we have used some stuff called fir bark dust We don’t have any of that this year. Some people have used sulfur sulfur and What that does is it you coat it with that and it allows you to go. Boom, Boom cut the plant and it what it actually does is it lowers the pH of that site it kind of heals it over the sulfur and the fir bark both of them have Properties in them to lower the pH and it causes them to heal over real quick So if you got just some sulfur, fir bark you can cut and plant right then now that being said I’ve been planting taters for a long time and I’ve always just cut them up with the exception of a time or two When we did have the fir bark, I’ve tried these things and I ain’t have no problems But I don’t have any problems just cutting them up and letting them heal and plant them but I got a good high sandy dirt And I always let them heal for about a few days three or four days a week and plant them and I only had trouble One year of all the years I could think I had a bad bad wet year one year and they rotted in the dirt on me Right. So if you wait is if you cut them Let them sit in that bucket for about three to four days. They’ll heal over nicely and You can go to plant them then that’s always good practice that keeps the this thing freshly cut It’s kind of susceptible to some fungal disease So letting that heal over and suberize is going to help keep it in your barn or somewhere where it can’t get rain in there You don’t want to get no moisture keep it under a shelter in your shop you’re barn, you’re carport or whatever Keep them dry and they’ll heal right over. Alright, let’s talk about Planting potatoes when to plant and then kind of how we do it. So I was doing some research just because Excuse me. With us carrying all these seeds of stuff you kind of have to put a date to maturity on a seed or a seed potato, but it’s

That number is just so arbitrary because it can depend on a bunch of different things And planting dates are kind of the same way sometimes what I was doing some research in the Almanac the Farmers Almanac actually says to plant potatoes 0 to 2 weeks after the last frost which I thought was strange because they uh, We always plant much sooner than that. They said you got to wait to the soil temperatures 45 to 55 degrees But other sites online you know kind of browsing at everybody’s opinion out there says to plant two to three weeks before the last frost and that’s more in line with What we’ve always done Yeah, all the old-timers around here tell you gotta plant them on February 14th, which is Valentine’s Day I normally wait couple weeks after that and I plant anywhere from the third to the fourth week in February Somewhere in there and were in zone 8 So that’s kind of my rule of thumb and I hear people that’s had success doing it any time Now don’t get much into March if you in zone 8, don’t get much into March planting your potatoes and you won’t have enough time Cuz yeah now let’s talk about zone 9. What about zone nine? That’s the one below us That is Central Florida, South Texas, a little bit of Arizona and I don’t ever wanna talk about California. But a little bit of California’s got zone nine in it Yeah, if you in zone 9 you need to be getting tater planting on your mind. Seriously Yeah, so zone nine has a Average last frost date between February 16 and 28. So y’all need to be planting right now up to the end of February Getting taters in the ground our last frost date It’s average last average last frost date is middle of March so that puts February right in our wheelhouse Let’s go over the others here. So if you’re in zone 7 average frost date is in April 1st, early April, first 15 days of April. So if you’re in zone 7, you won’t be planting taters probably middle of March Yep, if you’re in zone 6 you probably wanna be planting taters first of April end of March, first of April yep right, and if you’re in zone 5 and Your average first frost last frost date is in early May. You wanna be planting mid-April So hope that helps out for you, and we probably can Come up with a graphic and and put something like that on the website help people out, too When we’re planting taters, we’ve got a little system with our wheel hoe that makes planting taters easy quick job Now you normally put drip on yours. No, I did one time and I Hadn’t done it since, Yeah I don’t put drip on my taters Either we get plenty of rain, they like well-drained dirt Yeah, we normally get plenty of rainfall that time of the year and I don’t have any problems I may have to water once or twice but very seldom do I have to irrigate my potatoes So I don’t I don’t do the investment For the drip tape is warranted for me right now back in the old days before We was making wheel hoes way we planted taters was you get you a hoe and you go out there and you scratch you out of furrow and Put your taters in it then take your rake and cover it up but the way we do it nowadays is with the wheel hoe And you really need the double wheel hoe or the high arch to make this most effective So we got our plow blades here. You got your right and your left You set them up just like that And that’s what we call a middle buster here in the south or some people look up north may call it a furrow, right so we put them in what we call a furrowing position there or the middle buster position and that’s gonna make you furrow for your potatoes that’s going to make a furrow about 4 to 5 inches deep depending on how Soft your soil is which is perfect for setting a tater down. Yeah there you got your potatoes in your bucket that’s already healed over and you always want to plant that heal Side down and plant them up for you people up north that may not understand that That means just like that right there eyes pointing towards the sun, eyes pointing up so they can grow up Yep, you do them like that right there. You gonna have upside-down potatoes ain’t gonna work for you. So And and how far apart would you recommend setting them? Now I normally go about eight inches on my mmm-hmm somewhere in there. That’s what I would say for some of the smaller Varieties of taters. If you was planting some tiny finger ones or something. You could probably stack them in there thicker than that yeah, but for these ones that get a little larger eight inches, I think it’s good and then Once we lay them down in the furrow, we got to cover them up yep So then our plows were like this and then all we do is switch them around like this and with that double and high arch we can straddle them and cover them right up and we’ve got bacoddles of videos out there showing you how to do this makes it easy, quick makes easy work out of it Yeah, the the thing that takes the longest time is actually putting the potatoes down But you can zip up close up them rows and no time

get your wife and your children, grandchildren out there help you plant them taters and you stand up there act like you piddling with the plow getting it set up and you they’ll be through and you go out there and just wheel it in and cover it up and make You look like the hero hero. That’s right. So we close them up and then I don’t water mine I’ve heard different theories on this should you water them before they come up out of the ground or not? My thoughts are that they’re using all the nutrients from this tater meat Until they get up and form roots, so I try not to put any water on my until they emerge yeah, that can be one of your biggest issues with them rotting in the dirt if you do lose get a Flutter and stay real wet so I don’t either I like to get them up before I start putting water to them and Fertilize it I particular for one don’t like to put fertilizer in my row and plant potatoes on there. I’ve Excuse me. I’ve seen people do that in the past I’d like to get them up get it started before I start putting fertilizer to them. Now, I can put some compost in there I’ve done that before that works out fine But I don’t like to use commercial fertilizers put it in the furrow and then plant my taters on top of it. Mm-hmm So once, once we see them leaves emerge from the ground, it’s fair to assume there’s roots down there Then you can start giving them some water and if you’d like, let’s talk about fertilizing potatoes so Last year I tried this is experimenting and it worked pretty dang good for me. Once my taters came up before I hilled them the first time I Had me some good chicken manure compost and I went and I just put it between my rows Okay, I didn’t put it on top close to the plants. Just put between the rows so then when I threw the dirt on Top of them or hilled them. It was nice and mixed in it was right there and man they took off Yep. Now that was some fresh litter you had that was fairly hot It was fairly and that’s why I didn’t put it down when I’m planted, right Now if you got compost that’s worked off that’s fine to put it in that furrow and plant in there But I would not put fresh manure in there. So But but that worked good side dressing that way you could also side dress with some Chilean nitrate Probably you could soil drench with maybe some 20-20-20. What’s your preferred way to fertilize taters? I hit it with 10-10-10 one time then I like to hit it with some more Chilean nitrate. Just on the side Yeah, on the side and I will hit it I will side dress with some 20-20-20 But I normally do that on like a weekly to bi-weekly Basis if I get a little bit of a tight I put me 10-10-10 out there on it Yeah taters like to be I won’t say they’re as bad as onions and corn but they like to be fed They like to be fed and they like to be covered, they like to be covered up. That’s that’s one thing you can Hill them up as much as you want And so I’d like to do it usually about once every two weeks The first time you hill them you can do that with the wheel hoe Yep And then you’re gonna have to get out there with a hoe and a rake and sure enough throw some dirt, you start getting some weeds in there Just cover them up with dirt Will hill them up as tall sometimes, you know 1 to 2 foot tall. Some folks got those fancy Hipper Hilling disk on there tractors that you can really yeah really do it up. So Did you want to talk about the oh Now there’s a little bit of problems with blight on potatoes So if you have if you have a problem with blight And blight can work in there pretty quick and cause some problems with your foliage, you see it die uh die down you need to get you some Liquid-Cop You can hit them taters with it and that’ll help you with your blight problems So if you got a history of blight or it’s a place that you have gardened for a number of years And you could very well be susceptible to blight you want to get some of this liquid-cop have one on hand, seven to fourteen days Intervals in there hit it with this right here that will help with your blight. Blight and potato bugs is basically the only pest that you have It’s not a terrible idea to just be prevented with that. No, you need to have that on hand yeah, like he said if it’s an area you have been gardening for a while you subject to have a problem I like to I like to be ahead of the curve before they get eat up too bad Alright So if you have any more questions of anything we didn’t cover as far as planting taters Put those in the comment so we’ll be glad to answer them next week And now we want to get to the questions for this week And if we answer your question on the show, send us email to [email protected] We’ll send you a nice little prize for participating now how do you pronounce that boys name right there I think that’s Mphymel Mphymel, he asked the question Guys, I often have problems with my peppers are all crowded in and wedged in the branches and end up breaking up My plants end up trying to end up breaking up my plant trying to cut peppers out to harvest Do you prune peppers or anything to prevent that? I don’t I understand what he’s saying

especially when you’re using the Florida weave trellising technique as you’re Adding the new line of string there It tends to bunch up that plant you’ll get peppers in there and they’re hard to get out a couple solutions there You’re when you’re running your string to trellis them try to get that string on the main stem of the plant so it’s not smooshing all the leaves together If you have a hard time doing that Another solution is to go with the cages as opposed to maybe the Florida weave those cages Are going to let it sprawl out more give you a little more airflow and that helps you with disease problems too. It does so Be more particular with your trellising or Go to something like cages. I don’t prune them. I’ll prune the bottom few when I do my first line of trellis So I make sure I get it on a main stem, but I usually don’t prune peppers The cages work really well too I’ve had good success with those and we sell the I wouldn’t get the tall cages for peppers but small ones small ones are 40 inches or so work great for peppers, and then our second question is from Xavier 35:20 and he he was digging back in the YouTube archives way on back there and He said he saw an old video where we talked about we was saving money on onions, by growing our own from seed and Wondering if we was going to offer any onion seed. You know, that’s a great point that he brings up there We have grown our plants in the greenhouse before that’s before we started working with Dixondale. Mhm buying Buying your plants are hard and just having them come in and plant them is easy way to do it now I’m not saying you can’t plant them in your greenhouse And that may be something we look at from time time is offering some onion seed maybe an opportunity I don’t know that we gonna offer it this year But we may offer moving forward but it’s just easy for us to work with somebody like Dixondale order them plants in they come In and we plant them we always have good luck with them. That’s right. And then probably back when we made that video is before we had a the relationship we have with the onion folks now and Brian does us a solid and he told me that our onion plants this year he went out there and pulled them by hand and personally personally, he wanted to make sure I know I always kind of stay on him about getting my onions early and He made sure we’d get them early and we really like folks over there I don’t know how many acres they plant, but I know they got 2,200 acres there where they grow onion plants on and what type of Rotation did he say six year, six year rotation before they plant onions in the same spot again for disease and stuff They got this rig on a tractor that digs up them onion plants Faster than they can tie them up. It’s amazing. They got thing from overseas somewhere Belgium or somewhere over there It’s a it’s pretty neat deal. But uh, yeah We just like them folks so well, and they do such a good job with onion plants We’ll, we let them have the onion plant thing. We might carry some onion seeds if somebody wants to start doing that alright, and that’s gonna do it for today’s show and Hope you enjoyed it and we will see you guys next week. Take care
