The garden is just about done for the summer. I'm still getting a few tomatoes, okra, green beans, and black turtle beans. The sweet potatoes look good and I'll be harvesting those next month, trying to hold off as long as I can.
They need to be harvested before the frost, but since I got a late start I want to give them all the growing time possible. The Jerusalem artichokes (right) will be mulched heavily for harvest after the plants die back.
The amaranth did well.
I've just started to harvest the heads that are bent over from the weight of the seeds.
I grow amaranth for the chickens and the goats.
I only planted one bed of popcorn, but am happy that it did fairly well. Here's part of it -
We're still getting a few melons, both Green Nutmeg and watermelon, but they're all pretty small. Sweet though.
Okra, I'm slicing and freezing.
We like it oven fried or sauteed.
If you follow my book's facebook page, then you've likely already seen my red raspberry harvest.
I'm sure there were others and I'm guessing the birds got them. The fact that I only ever found one must mean that there weren't very many others no matter what. I was so hoping for raspberry something, but it's a plant that hasn't done well for me.
Of a fall garden, there isn't any news. We're going to do some revamping of our garden area so one of these days I'll have something on that.
How are your gardens doing?
And before I go, I'd like to remind you that there's still time to enter my giveaway!
