The nights are getting chilly over here. It went down to 10C last night. The days are still in the mid 20’s though..so everything better get cracking before the frost comes. Speaking of that awful word I bought a frost blanket yesterday. I have a few of them as well as a number of old sheets, but you can never have to many. I hope that I did not tempt fate by buying one so soon!
The past week was a good week. I didn’t not harvest as much as I would have liked, but with the trees getting in the way Tuesday and celebrating my father birthday yesterday the garden has taken a back seat. The fact that my new lens or medication keep making me fall over doesn't help either...lol I hope to get my butt out today though and do a bit of something. Or at least watch the hubby work in the garden for me!
There are a couple of firsts to report.
|The hubby took a bite before I could weigh and take a pic of the..lol|
The hubby dug up these three when we was by the beans. They are okay, but not very tasty. I don’t think I will plants this variety next year. Unless the frost sweetens them up...oooppps there is that word again!
I also got my first ever cauliflower!!!
I wasn’t sure of when to pick it though. I think i may have left it on too long since the curds are starting to separate. It is really dirty looking even after I washed it. There are about 5 more out there. I gave the one in this photo to my parents. I hope it tastes okay.
Otherwise everything is doing really well
The sunflowers are flowering....another first for the garden
I think I may go and cut a few today to put in the house. I have some fake sunflowers in there now. These would be better!
The tomatoes are ripening on the vines. This has never happed for me before!!
|tomatoes in the weeds :(|
The fall crops of turnips and spinach that I planted are a bust. Neither has spouted and since everything will be out in under a month I don’t see them doing anything. Oh well there is always next year
For my weekly round up. Nothing much has changed over last week. The only big changes I already talked about so there ya go :)
