We have been getting our vegetables from a local produce auction.
All this garden work, and we still have to buy veggies!!
We pulled up the potatoes last week. It was quite fun, actually. Kind of like digging for buried treasure.
We also pulled up the onions. They weren't growing, so I ended up with a bunch of small onions. I decided to pickle them. That was a long and tedious job from start to finish. I don't even like pickled onions!
Before and After Pictures
Our cabbages are very small, and I'm afraid they will all be eaten by bugs before they are big enough to be
The broccoli plants are big and leafy, but NO BROCCOLI. The eggplant is growing, but so far, no evidence that I will actually have eggplant. The same is true with the Brussel sprouts. I put the garden out a little late, so maybe they will come on eventually, but I'm not too hopeful.
The banana peppers are doing OK.
And, I'm starting to get tomatoes.
Here's the first installment of my work so far.
Top row: Sandwich Spread - 30 pts.
Middle row: Green beans - 8 pts.
More Sandwich spread;
Banana Peppers - 3 pts.;
Pickled onions - 3 pts., 8 half pints;
Squash - 4 qts. (left over from last year)
Bottom row: Potatoes - 8 quarts.
That is what has been keeping me busy this week. How about you?
