Fall garden

November 2nd, 2012 at 05:03 pm

Even though we watered this summer, the drought still took its toll on the garden. Our area was under a burn ban until close to October.

Now that ts cooler, we have already had several freezes. The garden should be done.

But, tonight I thought I'd go out and nose around the garden beds...Much to my surprise, it seems to think it is spring. I picked peppers, tomatoes, 10 lbs of onions, about 15 lbs of carrots (only got half of them) and a bucket full of brussel sprouts. I didn't check the potatoes yet, as it was getting dark.

So, tomorrow night and Sunday I guess I will be either canning or blanching and freezing food, and by then I can probably also pick another bunch of brussel sprouts.

Tonights picking probably came to around $75 worth of produce, if I were to buy it in the store. My herbs are also coming back-dill, ciliantro, mint and catnip.

    What a great surprise! Can I ask what kind of onions? From seed or set? Planted when?

    That is great!

    Wow, you just never know, do you!? That is great that the garden could lead to such a nice harvest so late in the year... it definitely offers you some insurance of good, fresh food that would cost a lot more at the store. Good for you!
