Looks like I have not posted in a while, and October begins tomorrow. Here’s a recap of September.
The last of our fingerling potato crop, as fingers.
First of the fall crops, on the life support of irrigation… we had only 1/2″ of rain all month!
Fall peas blooming in the big tunnel.
Cleaning out tomatoes from the little tunnel to make way for winter broccoli.
The tomatoes were still looking good, but we needed the space, and we still have plenty of tomatoes in the other tunnel!
What remains… lots of cherry tomatoes that will sprout up next year!
The broccoli planted, and covered.
Purslane, the wonder weed. Wondrous in its nutritional profile and also its ability to perpetuate itself in the garden!
Sowing winter spinach into very dry beds.
Red russian kale; our favorite!
Shadows of crops growing under cover.
A sea of kohlrabi, ready to jump into your bechamel sauce. Or to be grated into the finest slaw. Or to dip into your herbed yogurt or sour cream.
First of the ginger crop; lots more to come. Say yes to gingerols, the anti-inflammatory compounds in ginger. Next year we’d like to grow fresh turmeric as well.
In the log yard. We salvaged a bunch of concrete blocks that we’ll use to stack the logs on to keep them off the ground. Ready for expansion! We love mushrooms!
Taking stock of what’s growing this morning.
So much… looking forward to some great October harvests!
