Fall pictures and thoughts
Finally I remembered to take my camera to the garden yesterday. I wanted to share how the garden is progressing. We are all really enjoying the greens now. Turnips, Mustards, Tat soi, radishs, kohlrabi, beet greens, lettuces, arugula. I think the Misato Rose radish is so pretty I wanted everyone to see it before I put it in last nite’s salad. I also had to show you the beautiful immature pumpkin I used like zuchinni in last nite’s Ratatouille.
The stuff in the high tunnel is really taking off. We are having a problem with grasshoppers in there eating leaves. Does anyone have any experience as to what to do about that? We are experimenting with the little low tunnels too. Thankfully Bill and I got the plastic on wed before we had some really hard frost. Saturday morning was around 22 degrees. We didn’t loose any of our greens thank goodness. I’m really enjoying new recipes for using end of the yr produce abundance. My fav’s so far are Green tomato chutney, pepper jelly, and chicken stirfry with lots of peppers. I plan to try canning Pepper relish today or tomorrow. Sue at LMU
