I laid them out on some hessian and cardboard in a dark, airy, dry place in the garage so they could dry out before storing them. Potatoes are best stored in layers in a cardboard box, not touching each other, with hessian or newspaper in between each layer. We planted asparagus in the bed our spuds were in too – they are doing very nicely (if I can keep the chooks off them).

Walnut farmer Russ Lester is concerned about the effects climate change could bring to his California farm. No matter your personal opinion on the subject, talk of climate usually conjures up images of warming, floods and rising sea levels.  Those are some ecological changes predicted from coast to coast. To produce a robust walnut crop, you need the right weather, according to California walnut grower Russ Lester, whose family has been farming in the state since the 1860s.  He is concerned about how the rising temperatures could affect his walnut crops.
He's referring to the thousand or so hours of temperatures below 45 degrees that the trees need for winter dormancy. For a wine grape, where it's grown is one of the most important factors in determining its taste – and its value.


And different grapes grow in different regions, thanks in large part to the climate of those regions. As Lester indicated, warmer winters aren’t the only concern climate change could bring to the region. Most farmers in California irrigate their crops, but there is concern that warming and less snow would reduce the snowpack in the Sierra Nevada mountains.  That would mean less melt to replenish reservoirs.
Like many farmers in California, Rominger already made changes to improve water efficiency.
Starting this year, businesses in California with high emissions can be charged for their contributions to greenhouse gases.  A new law, passed as AB 32, is similar to cap and trade legislation that failed at the national level.
The law definitely affects dairies, where manure emits greenhouses gases, and many food processing plants, like tomato canning factories, will likely be taxed. If high operating costs drive out tomato plants to other states – or drive down the price plants can pay farmers – it won't be worth it for many California farmers to grow tomatoes.  It'll be cheaper for food companies to buy processing tomatoes from China and elsewhere. Right now, California farmers aren't so much worried about the warming weather, as they are the political winds of legislators and the regulations they pass. Take farmer Tony Turkovich, a Central Valley farmer who uses drip irrigation and cover crops to reduce both his water and fuel uses. With this method, Turkovich is reducing nitrous oxide, a greenhouse gas, and he saves money while still getting a great crop yield.
The reality for farmers is that with all these economic ramifications from climate change legislation, they're far more focused on their market futures than the future of the weather.
We had recently built the terraced garden beds and filled them with dirt (clay lumps) and stable sweepings.
Although the plants had died back, I would have liked to have left them a bit longer for the tubers to mature. Once they were dry, I sorted all the small ones for eating this week, and then put all the bigger ones away in a box.


I never would have guessed there’d be a difference between store-bought potatoes and home-grown ones. California grape growers are also watching changes in the climate, but they're not too worried just yet. But in California – where they grow more than 200 crops, including perennials such as walnuts and apricots – some crops could be adversely affected.  Plus, California farmers also have new climate change regulations to contend with, which worry many growers more than the weather. Plant and environmental scientist Louise Jackson of the University of California Davis said models also predict higher levels of carbon dioxide in the air. Instead of spreading nitrogen-based fertilizer, he puts the fertilizer directly into the water, which is dripped onto the plants’ roots via the underground irrigation tubes. Potatoes are a great way to break up lumpy dirt, rot down manures, and generally improve the soil. As I’d hoped, the garden bed was nicely broken down and had lots of really fat worms through it.
Don’t get hung up on the scale, just start something (anything!) and build from there. That can greatly reduce both water use and fertilizer use, because it sends the water and nutrients right where they're needed. We recently dug up a few that we’d missed and they were a bumper size but starting to go green (the chooks found them for us). Infographics are the perfect visual tool for clearly and quickly presenting complex ideas or processes.
