garden jewels

i find very few things in this world as satisfying as finding jewels in the garden!

looks like my potatoes over summered well and the volunteers from the ones I missed digging have given me some too. I'm getting a few snap peas but the cutworms really 'cut down' on them  . broccoli did well and so did the pak choi. strangely the kohlrabi isn't too happy. that always was easy at the old house. cabbages may or may not get somewhere before the cold sets in. onions are resprouting. most of those were lost in the weeds in the summer and never were dug. what will become of them remains to be seen.

Yours actually get into the house? I love foraging in the garden. I am not fond of veggies, except fresh off the vine, and then I can eat my weight in them. I love baby cukes for example, baby lettuce, baby okra. Since we grow organic, there is no issue, just rinse them off and munch away.

Our dog requires part of them though, he is particularly fond of baby cukes.

Passion fruit is very good too - and oranges and grapefruit, and bananas, and star fruit, well you get the picture.

some things don't make it into the house unless there are large quantities! snap peas have to be excessivly productive or my daughter and I gobble them all up as we pick them. tomatoes are at risk too unless there are alot! taters...well....kinda need to cook them

Whatever you say buddy! And I believe this tiny ad too:
Switching from electric heat to a rocket mass heater reduces your carbon footprint as much as parking 7 cars
