Cilantro, Carrots, Melons & More

This is has been quite an exciting week in the Sanden Garden. We’re starting to see everything pop through except the cucumbers. I’m starting to fear those little things won’t be coming up this year. Anyways, check out what we’ve got growing this week!

Next week, I’ll share what we’re seeing in our radishes, beets, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, and zucchini. Tune in!

P.S. I ended up applying SP-1™ to that one rose bush last week. We’ll see what happens!

Sanden Garden: A Product of AgriEnergy Resources

Can anyone else believe we’re nearing the end of planting? The season flew by, and as with any year, we have faced our fair share of setbacks, but our little seedlings are tough and will persevere!

Speaking of tough, we have lots of exciting things happening this summer. Some of you may remember my garden from last year where I threw a bunch of seeds in the ground and hoped for the best? Well, we’re STILL eating on those butternut squash, beets, and jalapeño peppers!

This year, I decided to use some of our SP-1™, Pillar, and Myco Seed Treat® (MST), and of course some compost from one of our very own salesman, Alan Dale. His site, Rare Earth, is actually within walking distance from our house, and you’d never know he’s making compost. Rare Earth is the only compost site in the state of Illinois that hasn’t had an odor complaint filed against it. This man knows his stuff!

Anyway, I planted cilantro, carrots, lettuce, watermelon, peppers, radishes, beets, cucumbers, spaghetti squash, butternut squash, and zucchini. Check it out!

Unfortunately, the weather didn’t cooperate the week following planting (very cold and lots of rain), but I’m pretty happy with the differences we’re seeing so far.

Notice Molly (our dog), photobombing at .17! She always has to sneak her way into photos in a not so stealthy way, but hey at least she loves to be in the garden with me! And my husband, he makes the best taste tester. Who knows you may even see more of them around these parts as the garden takes off!

Hopefully we’ll have more differences to report next week, but until then if you’re seeing any success with our products, I’d love to hear about it!

P.S. We also have research plots going in PA, OH, NY, NE, ND, MI, WI, IN, NE, IA, AZ, CO, AL, GA, MN. Hopefully we’ll start seeing some exciting results! Stay tuned!

Roettger remembered for serving attitude

It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of a dear salesman, friend, and servant. Ray Roettger lost his battle with Lymphoma at 1:00 a.m. Sunday, November 27. ray-roettger

He was a great asset to our team and always had a
mischievous grin on his face. You could always count on Ray to help you with anything. Whether it was a fertility program for your farm or just a listening ear, he always made time for you.

As we celebrate Ray’s life this week, please feel free to send us your memories and we’ll share them on our social media pages.

Memories can be sent to our communication strategist at ksanden@agrienergy.net.

Weather Wednesday 8/24/16

The weather has been insane today. One of the big maple’s on the property got struck by lightning either late last night or the wee hours of the morning. Needless to say, today has been crazy hectic trying to get our internet back up and the mess cleaned up. But we did it and most everything is back up and running smoothly!

So, without further ado, here’s your weekly weather report:

Ken Mussleman: Northeast Iowa continues to get adequate to excessive rains. There’s quite a bit of SDS showing up in bean fields. With the frequent rain showers, it’s difficult to make hay. In Bureau and Henry County, Illinois there’s some wind damage and ponding water. They both had 2.5-3.5 inches of rain overnight. Beans are lodged from excessive moisture.

Gary Campbell: In Michigan, what used to be dry for most of the summer, is now very wet. Several growers report 8-10″ over the past 3 weeks, with localized patches of over 5″ last weekend. The crops are moving toward maturity, and overall, looking good.

Eric Johnston: This past week has brought a good amount of moisture with different rain events happening throughout Northern Illinois.  This morning we received a nice shower – looks like we got around ¾ inch.

And with that, here’s to another week of watching your crops mature!

Weather Wednesday 8/10/16

It’s been pretty warm here in North Central Illinois, and for the most part, crops are looking good. There’s a few thunderstorms in the forecast within the next week so we may get some good rains. We shall see.

Here’s a look at what our sales agronomists are seeing around the Midwest this week:

Gary Campbell: Northern Ohio continues to be very dry and corn is showing visible stress. A few areas received showers last weekend, but not nearly enough. Central Wisconsin through Minnesota are completely opposite – they’re very wet after getting several inches last week, which has taken a toll on the edible bean crop.

Eric Johnston: It has been hot and not much rain since last week in Northern Illinois. A few places received a small amount, while other places didn’t receive any. A rainfall would be welcomed in most of Northern Illinois.

Ken Musselman: Northwest Indiana is very dry and crops are showing stress, especially on lighter soils. Some fields have only received 4 inches of rain since planting. Northeast Illinois is getting on the dry side after excessive late June and early July rains.

Mike Wyatt: The weather in Southwest Nebraska is very typical. Hot days in the nineties, nights in the upper sixties. Thunder storms build in the late afternoons. We have had enough moisture that the crops are in good condition. Rain amounts the last week were .85 inches over a small area.

Ray Roettger: The weather in Southern Indiana has been hot with plenty of moisture, however there is a dry area in Wayne County. Southern Missouri has adequate moisture in most areas.

And with that, here’s to another week of watching your crops grow!

Weather Wednesday 8/3/16

The sun is shining and it’s shaping up to be a beautiful day here in Princeton, Illinois. We got a few scattered showers over the weekend, which we will gladly take as parts of Michigan, western New York, and Massachusetts have been experiencing drought conditions. According to the U.S. Drought Monitor, 74% of topsoil in Massachusetts, 66% of Michigan topsoil, and 51% of New York topsoil was rated as having short or very short moisture levels. Hopefully they get some rain soon!

Here’s a look at what our sales agronomists have been seeing around the Midwest this week:

Ken Musselman: Weather conditions continue to be generally favorable in most areas of Iowa, Illinois, and Indiana, however there are some dry pockets and isolated wet areas. Most rain systems have had very uneven coverage, but temperatures have been mostly favorable. Crops continue to advance at a rapid pace.

Gary Campbell: Many areas of Michigan finally received much needed rain last weekend, some parts 2 – 4 inches. Other areas need more rain as the stress increases with warm temps the rest of this week. Northern Ohio is in a very similar state, with some areas getting nice rains and others still waiting for moisture.

Eric Johnston: Rain has been real spotty in Northern Illinois this past week. Some growers I work with got some rain while others haven’t had any last week. We didn’t see any on our farm so some rain would be welcome.

And with that, here’s to another week of watching your crops grow!

Weather Wednesday 7/27/16

It cooled off quite a bit this week after the heat wave swept through the North Central Illinois area over the weekend.

It. Was. Hot.

There’s a few thunderstorms forecasted going into the weekend, but temperatures remain pretty average for this time of year.

Here’s a look at what our sales agronomists have been seeing, in terms of weather, around the Midwest:

Gary Campbell: It’s still very dry in Northwest Ohio. The Findlay area only had 2-3” of rain since June 1. The lighter soils are really showing heat stress. Parts of Southern Wisconsin received 3” of rain last weekend, and parts of Minnesota remain wet.

Ken Musselman: After going through a dry spell, Central Iowa received some big rains bringing some relief to the extreme heat. East Central Iowa continues to get timely rains.

Eric Johnston: We made it through the scorching weekend in North Central Illinois. Thankfully we had an inch of rain last week, and the forecast looks favorable through the end of the month. Just going by the size of the sweet corn ears I’ve been eating lately, we should have a good crop as long as it can hang on and fill the ears.

Ray Roettger: Most areas from Missouri to Pennsylvania are looking well with adequate to good moisture. Seems to be a dry area from Holmes County, Ohio through New York, but the crop growth is good.

And with that, here’s to another week of watching your crops grow!
