Fall garden

November 3rd, 2012 at 12:03 am

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.
