I know we are well into October now, but I thought I would still share the end of the month pictures from the September garden before a large portion of it got harvested for storing! Shorthly after these pictures were taken we pulled roughly 50 pounds of potatoes, 25 more pounds of tomatoes, 6 pounds of basil (more in another post on that haul!!!) and 15 pounds of beans before the frost threatened! Most of what remains now is cold hardy and can left for a few more weeks.
My fall green plantings have sadly been ravaged by slugs and we have had to replant the winter greens, asian greens and spinach again in planters on the deck, fingers crossed we get a decent pile of greens for fall salads!
The fall radish and market turnip crop are doing very well and should be ready to pick and enjoy in the next week – it is amazing how hardy these cool season veggies can be. With a little straw and some hoop tunnels over top as the frost sets, we should be able to pick carrots, beets, kale, chard and onions until well into December. Bring on the cool weather, we are ready!!
