23 September Weekly Update

Yesterday were Frodo and Bilbo Baggins’ birthdays; I hope you spent as much time in celebration as we did.

Harvests this week were:  lots of butter beans, field peas, green beans, and a variety of sweet and hot peppers.

Early Fall Harvest

We were quite busy with other commitments this week so we had to cram picking and other garden tasks into Sunday afternoon.  We sprayed BT on the Fall crops again as new caterpillars have hatched.  Hopefully the caterpillars will all die after the first frost (generally around the 15th of October).  We also re-seeded lettuce in one of the boxes where NONE of four different varieties germinated (I think they were originally seeded 3 or 4 weeks ago).  Additionally, we seeded mache, cilantro, radishes, and more lettuces in porch boxes.

    Mache sounds splendid! Your beans are beautiful.

    It’s just amazing, how the internet allows us to visit gardens all around the globe. I never tire of that!
