Preparation of clear apple juice
Our clear apple juice was produced from the RUBINETTE variety, which is crossed with COX ORANGE X ZLATI DELIŠES.
First we sorted the apples. For apple juice we selected apples with a diameter of less than 6 cm and damaged apples. We have prepared the best quality apple for sale.



Then all the apples were washed. Water was poured into a larger container and each box of apples washed separately. Apples were ready for grinding.



We milled the apples with an electric mill. We poured the apples into a mill, which was crushed into a pulp, which we intercepted in a plastic box.



We poured a apple pulp into a hydraulic press.



When the pressure rose, the apple pulp began to squeeze and, consequently, the juice began to flow.



Under the press we had containers in which we collected the juice. When the container was full, we poured the juice into a large bowl. There were 50 liters of apple juice.



On 50 liters of juice, we added 15 ml of fruit enzyme and 25 g of gelatin and 75 g of bentonite, which helps to clean the juice. We mixed all together and left in the container until the next morning.



The next morning, we decanted the juice, so we separated the sediment from the juice. We decanted it with a plastic tube.



Then, apple juice was filtered with a pad filter.




After filtration, the juice was pasteurized with pasteurisator. We destroyed all the microorganisms and thus prolong the storage life of apple juice.
Apple juice was ready for bottling.



The bottles with heated apple juice were immersed in cold water to cool it as quickly as possible. Then we put the bottles in a box.
Clear apple juice was ready for use.

Pumpkin harvest 2018
Third consecutive year, at the Biotechnical School Maribor, we decided to include pumpkins in the crop rotation. The main reason is, of course, pumpkin oil obtained from pumpkin seeds. On Tuesday, September 11th, 2018, students of agricultural technician started with a typical autumn farm chores, harvesting a pumpkins. Due to less precipitation in the summer time, the crop was lower than it should have been, but it is still higher than in 2017.
The pupils separated all the pumpkins and placed them in the rows, where they waited for a pumpkin combine.
The next day, we started the counting, measuring and weighing of randomly selected pumpkins. The measurements were taken very seriously, since the results obtained were also needed for the ERASMUS + project.




With the measurements, we wanted to find out what the crop is on the whole surface, what is the average weight of pumpkin, average diameter, quantity of pumpkin seeds, etc ..
Work was done quickly. So those who counted pumpkins in the field as well as those who carried out the measurements.



We were interested in the proportion of pumpkin seeds in pumpkins. That's why we decided to remove pumpkin seeds by hand. We first weighed pumpkins,



split them in half and remove the seeds.



In the end we weighed the seeds, to determine the proportion of seeds in the pumpkin.



This year's measurements can be compared with last year's. It will be interesting to see, how weather affected on the pumpkin and pumpkin seeds production.
The other pumpkins were mechanically harvested. The combine picked up pumpkins with a hedgehog, crushed it, separated the pumpkin meat from the seeds, and finally stored seeds separately.
After the harvest, pumpkin seeds were dried.

How to make jam?
At the subject Fruit Processing, we learned how to process the fruit into a jam. That's why we decided to cook our jam. Jam were prepared from frozen sour cherries, raspberries, fresh BIO lemons and oranges.
At the beginning, we prepared knives, trays on which we cut, various containers, kitchen scales, wooden spoons and other accessories and, of course, fruit. During the work was very important hygiene, so we often washed our hands and dress appropriately. Professor Podjavoršek gave us some instruction and then we could start work. During preparation of jam, we kept the recipes we received.
Preparation of jam is very important. It is a final fruit product, which can be very economically useful, as it is easier for us to sell fruit that we produce on farms.

Preparation of jam

We needed:
• gelling agent in a ratio of 2:1
• 1250 g of fruit
• 500 g of sugar

To the gelling agent was added two spoons of sugar and stirred.



Prepared fruit and gelling agent.



The prepared gelling agent mix with fruit (the fruit must be cold).



Cook at high temperature and stir constantly. Before it boils, we can mash the fruit.



After boiling, add sugar (500 g). Cook for another 3 minutes, stir constantly.



If necessary, remove the foam.



When we remove the foam, we can pour jam into glasses.



Turn all glasses (on the cap) for 5 minutes.



Addition of gelling agent and sugar can also be done the gelling test.



The gelling test is a cooking process, to determine if the dish - most often jam - is thickened during cooking. The gelling test is done by taking a little jam from the pot and placing it on a plate. When the drop on the plate does not break, the dish is sufficiently dense or cooked.

Cooked and photographed: students from 3.a and 4.a program agricultural technician

Time spent with friends from Hamburg!
Let's start where it all began. It started on Sunday morning at the airport in Graz, where we were waiting for the group to arrive to Slovenia. They arrived at 11 am in the morning. We were waiting for them to welcome them into our home country Slovenia. They were very excited to see us after the long journey. Their first day was already busy becouse after checking in the hotel we went on a tour of the city Maribor plus dinner, where we were catching up on the news.
The next day we had a meeting in the morning at 8.30 am. Everybody was very tired. We had a meeting to learn about the plan of the whole week and to arrange people into diffrent groups: honey group, stone wall building group, jam making group. Next, we went to Račji dvor to our bee yard to start with the most important task, collecting honey from the bee hives, as our product main ingredient is the honey and it would be sold, with other product we made, at the big market on Friday. At 16:00 o'clock we went to Pohorje together to see the beautiful view of the city Maribor plus I made new friends, who later became my best friends.
Every day we were working hard and had fun and got closer and closer with the students from Rissen. All the activities that accompanied our production were connected to importance of the bees in our lives and importance to work together as one : we went to Escape room, bowling, to Bee museum in Radovljica.
The week went by pretty quickly and sooner or later Friday was here. You know the time to sell our products which we had been making all week. To be honest the big market was a big success. Many people came and admired our work and bought the products. And we were proud of what we managed to achieve with cooperative work.
After the market the week was almost over but there were still 2 more days left. So lets continue our story. On Saturday was the picnic day. A reward for our work. The food was delicious. Who prepared it ??? It was our teacher D. Jakopin. He has the skills of a master chef. The days spent the whole day with the Germans were very beautiful and to be honest I wouldn't trade it for anything in the world. The friendships which were gathered through the whole week will forever stay in my heart. After the day was over all of us were sad but not because we didn't have fun but because we knew that this was our last day together so a lot of us cried.
And so the last day came. The Germans were leaving Slovenia at 8.30 with a bus to the airport. We came with them to say one last goodbye. The whole time while we were driving we had fun as much as we could but when we finally arrived at the airport almost everybody told me: Hey Miha, if your ever come to Germany just come and visit us we would be glad to see you again and of course I said the same thing to them. Afterwards we said our goodbyes one last time.
Goodbye Alina, Christiane, Nivan, Tjorven, Anton, Pascal, Markus, Sven, Jannick, Meli,… I miss you guys and I hope we are gonna meet again in the near future.

A little different show us the high temperatures in June. The last two years are really warm. Last year had only a small amount of different (~0,4 degree) to this year. This is important because the very wet year had lower temperatures in case of the wetness. but still around 21 degrees mean.


https://www.wetteronline.de/wetterdaten/hamburg?pcid=pc_rueckblick_data&gid=10147&pid=p_rueckblick_diagram&sid=StationHistory&iid=10147&metparaid=TXLD&period=4&month=05&year=2018

Also the highest and lowest temperature are nearly the same (around 30 and around 14 degree). But the June in 2018 is a little higher.

Despite all the fluctuations and differences of the individual years or decades, the trend is continuing that Hamburg is becoming warmer and drier.
The fluctuations within a month or several years are becoming more and more variable and the individual phenomena such as rain and heat more unpredictable.

Control the Orchard in Hamburg 19.6.2018
We arrieved back from Maribor and take a look at our Orchard.
Grow our wine and grow our new plants of pumkins?
Here you can see the answer!


You can see that our pumkins grow and the wildherbs are so small that it`s not a concurent for the pumkins.


The most of the pumkins got more leafs for photosynthesis and started faster growing. We only lost two plants. We wait and hope.


And the wine looks also good. The hard work before our journey to Maribor be worthwhile. The wildherbs don`t got much space and the wine grow.


Out of blossoms got the beginning of grapes.
We wish us a good weather to let our plants grow.
