Missing Out on Veggies

I am feeling a little bit cheated. I was at the Kansas Grown! Farmers Market annual meeting last night, and a couple of the vendors were talking about how they are still picking tomatoes and zucchini. Not fair! One of the vendors was also telling about the orange cauliflower she planted as an experiment, and has beautiful heads on it right now. Again, not fair!

I guess I’ll have to be content with the salad greens, watermelon radishes, purple carrots, and bok choy. Oh yeah, and those raspberries that just keep coming! I guess life here in the Demo Garden isn’t so sad after all!

  1. Yeah, I missed pulling out a sneaky piece of tomato vine that thought it was a strawberry runner and burrowed into the mulch path… I noticed it a couple days ago when a fresh, shiny green tomato turned up in the path. Now I kind of regret composting the (rest of the) tomato vines, since if a half-buried remnant is enjoying the weather so much, what would the whole plant be doing? (Granted, the half-buried remnant was, well, *mulched*.)

    I hadn’t bothered to pull out the summer squash yet, so it was all black leaves and bright green leaf-stems (trunks!). And now it’s full of tiny little new leaves, and all-over blossoms, and it might actually have a chance to fruit again. I tweeted about the potential for stuffed squash blossoms at Thanksgiving dinner. Crazy stuff.

    (Oh, and you maybe want to turn off those “possibly related posts”… they’re spammy.)

    • Thanks for the heads up on the spam links! I am not seeing them when I pull up the blog, nor am I sure what I can do to make them turn off. Are you using a feed reader to follow the blog?

  2. I do use a feed reader, but the links are here onsite. Right under the berry picture, labeled “Possibly related posts: (automatically generated)”.

    Just for you, I followed the one that says “MY SEX DREAM HAS BEEN REALIZED.” Despite the name (I’m sure I’ve gotten email with that subject…) it’s not spam. But it’s not, despite what WordPress.com thinks, a relevant link, as far as I can tell.

    I use WordPress software on my own site, rather than hosting at WordPress.com, so I don’t actually know what sort of control you get over those. If it’s not mandatory, there should be a setting somewhere in your admin that can turn it off, or at least confine it to other posts within this blog (where it’s often a very useful feature).

    • I don’t see it on my computer at work, nor our computer at home. My husband can see them when he is on his work computer. Strange! I have scoured the WordPress settings, but can’t find anything. I may try the WordPress help functions. Hopefully something can get cleaned up!

    • Okay, they are showing up now, for no reason whatsoever. I figured out how they spontaneously generated those links…my title…”I’m Feeling Cheated” apparently is one of those phrases that draws, um…interesting post links. I changed the title, so hopefully that helps. I’ll have to be more careful with my titles until I figure out how to get those shut off.

    • Figured it out! Hopefully it’s all better now.
