We've enjoyed this year's garden tremendously...we still are, but the season's quickly coming to a close...frost and below freezing temps are expected around here in the next few days. I feel a little sad knowing that soon, our productive garden will be resting in preparation for next year...and though we'll continue to enjoy our garden produce through everything I've preserved, there's something to be said for enjoying nature's bounty. Until next year...
We harvested another full basket of beans and still have blooms and small sprouts still striving to reach maturity...we'll pick them the day before frost is expected.
Snap Bush Strike beans I sowed while participating in the Blind Pig and the Acorn seed project are still producing beautifully.
We still have gorgeous squash blooms...now that we know they won't be producing fruit we can pick them for use in salads...
We harvested the rest of our red potatoes today...
I spotted one more tiny watermelon that was hanging on the outside of the fence...unfortunately it was already soft and rotting, so back into the garden it went...compost for next year.
I also decided to cut the corn stalks (Johny did the cutting for me) and create a fall decoration with them...
Is your garden still producing or is it resting up for next year?
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
Oh, those green beans look nice! Are they stringless? My garden is mostly done -- plowed over and sowed with crimson clover. There are still some peppers I need to get before a heavy frost.
What a great harvest you had and lessons learned. Love the fall decorations on the deck...don't forget to return the corn stalks & other vegetation to your garden. Hugs!
I was glad to see your corn stalks on the deck. (By the way they look awesome there). I thought you were turning Johny into a scare crow there for a minute.
We are in the casita for 11 days, therefore no blogging for me.
Lise , batter the squash flowers with tempura and fry them delish , your garden did great this year , we also take young watermelon and fry them just like squash with oyster sauce love them too yum yum
Vicki, the beans in the photo are stringless, but all the others we have are not. Crimson clover sounds like a lovely winter ground cover, maybe we'll try it. Last year we used winter rye, but it didn't grow well.
Dad, the everything will go back to the garden, though perhaps starting in our compost pile...decomposes better there. Life is good here, no doubt! Hugs back.
Patti, there's still time for the scare crow concept, LOL! Enjoy your casita time...going any place in particular or just roaming?
Sounds delicious Malcolm...I know about the fried and stuffed blooms, but I didn't know about frying watermelon...that sounds fabulous! Love oyster sauce:)
