"Probiotics have been advertised as a treatment for everything from allergies to digestive issues to, amazingly, social anxiety. New research indicates that we might not be the only ones to benefit from probiotics, though: a study from the University of Washington suggests that plants might grow bigger and stronger with a dose of bacteria as well." - Dan Nosowitz

Dublin Farmers' Market: July 15th

"Not all insects are nuances, pests, or poisonous. Some are actually beneficial"
-Anonymous



"Some bugs eat our crops, but fortunately, there are other bugs that eat those plant-eating bugs. The trick is to make your garden appeal to them. Just like in the world of mammals, in the insect world, there are plant-eaters and there are animal-eaters. Those species that are referred to as beneficial insects, though they may be cute (like ladybugs), are those with carnivorous tendencies. The bug-eating bugs are the ones you want in your garden. They prey on pest insects or, in some cases, parasitize them—tachinid flies, for example, lay eggs in the heads of caterpillars and then the larvae hatch and tunnel into their host, quickly killing them." - Brian Barth, Modern Farmer

Let's bring the good bugs back! Learn how to create a beneficial bug sanctuary in your backyard! Read through Brain Barth's article found on the Modern Farmer website!

Dublin Farmers' Market: June 24th

"A ripe melon says ‘punk’ when thumped; a green one says ‘pink’ or ‘pank.'”

Mark Twain 

5 Smart Farmers’ Market Hacks

Straight off the farm and cared for with love, fresh produce from local farms is unbeatable. Follow these smart hacks to get the best of the best at the farmers’ market—and keep your produce fresher longer at home.

Store peaches upside down Peaches are notoriously sensitive and bruise easier than a poet’s feelings. Keep them at room temperature, stem end down; this provides stability on a flat surface.

Look for a yellow spot on a watermelon to indicate ripeness Partly because unless you’re some kind of watermelon whisperer, the “thump test” won’t cut it. Miller quotes Mark Twain, who said, “A ripe melon says ‘punk’ when thumped; a green one says ‘pink’ or ‘pank.'”

Don’t store basil in the fridge Basil is a tropical plant, highly sensitive to cold. It will turn black quickly if stored below 40°; your refrigerator is likely set between 35° and 38°.

Keep cucumbers at room temperature Didn’t really know that, did you? It’s OK to admit—this was a new one for a lot of us. Cucumbers are also sensitive to the ethylene gas given of by some fruits and veggies, so keep them apart from the likes of tomatoes, melons, and bananas.

Dublin Farmers' Market: June 17th

"Tomato beds have an unfair reputation as the messiest, ugliest, most disease-ridden parts of a vegetable garden. To keep them from devolving to this sorry state, tomato plants need your care and support. More specifically, they need the support of a trellis, stake or cage, and they need you to train them to grow on it while primping and pruning their vines into a respectable form. If you do, the plants will be healthier and more productive—and more presentable when you’re showing off your garden to visitors."


Staking, Training, and Pruning


This week we are providing some tips on staking, training, and pruning your crop of tomatoes! 

Modern Farmer's Brian Barth, explains this crucial step in the tomato growing process. Having staked, trained, and properly pruned tomato plants will help produce the best quality tomatoes!

Throughout the article, read tips on:
  • Support Structures, including:  store-bought and homemade wire cages; stakes; and trellises
  • Pruning
  • Training
