Since we did some garden cleanup this week, I thought I’d share some of those photos. It is always sad to pull out plants, but it is nice when the garden looks clean too!
We ended up with about 5 pounds of green tomatoes from all the remaining plants. Some of them will still turn red, while others probably won’t. I suspect I’ll have to find a couple green tomato recipes to share.
I think I’ve discussed my propensity for trying things just to see what will happen, right? Well, this is one of those cases. I had a few fava bean seeds kicking around, so why not throw them in on October 15, just to see how they survive the winter? Oh yeah, and let’s put them in the cold bed with the spinach, rather than the bed with the plastic. I’ll be very surprised if we get any fava beans next spring, but hey…who knows?
Along that same line, here’s the little larkspur seedlings in amongst the lettuces. So far they seem quite content with life. I wonder how they’ll look in a couple weeks? They are supposed to be very hardy, but I’m afraid they’re still too small.
The leeks and onions are looking good, especially the leeks. It is rather amazing that they were such tiny, wispy little plants two months ago, and they still have a long way to go before they reach full size!
Can you believe that it’s going to be November come next Monday? I’m still not sure where September went! That said, it looks like we may actually get down to some freezing temperatures here in South Central Kansas…in a couple of weeks. We’ll see if the forecast holds!
