Garden Update

It sure has been a while since I have done a post! The garden has slowed considerably in the past few weeks and I have been consumed with photography this season, hence the blog neglect. Overall this season was so so, good thing there always is next season. There is not a lot left in the garden at the moment, the only thing ready for harvest at the moment are potatoes & peppers. In terms of fall crops I never got around to starting any so the garden will be quite quiet this fall. There is a nice patch of spring broccoli that is starting to produce again though and I will at least try to sow some fall greens. Everything needs a good clean up as well including the blight stricken tomatoes. Below are a series of harvest photos I found on my drive, taken since my last post.

  2. Nate - Thanks! They are Goldings, half browned before I got to them... There is enough to make an english pale though.

  3. It is difficult to keep the season going this time of year. I'd still like you to try to enter something in my Christmas veggie blog. Will you have anything edible at Christmas?

  4. I was just thinking about you yesterday and wondering what you have been up to.

    It looks like your garden is giving you some nice late veggies!

    You should post some of your pics from the summer.
