Well, so much for trying to support the sunflower in the old kitchen garden. We had high winds again this morning, and the last of the three flower stalks on the remaining sunflower in the old kitchen garden finally broke. It was actually still upright when I came out this morning, but by the time … Continue reading Morning harvest, and another one down
I was rather pleased with this morning's harvest! I am just amazed that we still have beans to pick, this late in the season! Even a single yellow bean. 😀 If the mild temperatures continue, we will be getting more yellow beans, too. There are new beans growing, all over the row! From what I … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: morning in the garden, and first lettuce!
When I did my morning rounds, I didn't harvest anything, as there didn't seem to be any need, yet. Then I did my evening rounds, and found that a lot can change by the end of the day! Spoon Tomatoes (and Potato Beetle)Mosaic Medley tomatoes As you can see, the tomato plants are dying back, … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: evening harvest
I got to give Nosencrantz full body pets this morning! She hadn't even started eating yet when she let me pet her - and she was purring! Then she joined her Grandma Butterscotch for breakfast. 🙂 Do you see that orange over on the far right? That's Rolando Moon. She's still around! It looks like … Continue reading Morning kitties and morning harvest
Heading out to do my morning rounds is pretty awesome these days. ALL of the kitties come running! I even got to give Nosencrantz full body pets - but only while she was eating! Toesencrantz started to come close, but she was too nervous with me being so close, and kept going away. So I … Continue reading Morning kitties, and wayward vegetables
We were having a lovely rain when I headed out to do my morning rounds. Though we have been getting the odd showers for the past while, things were still starting to dry out. With the high winds yesterday, I actually watered the old kitchen garden, when I noticed all the beet greens were wilted. … Continue reading Unexpected harvest, and other things
Yesterday afternoon, I headed out to gather a few vegetables from the garden. There were sunburst squash to pick, as well as some beans. We're still getting enough purple beans to harvest to make for decent sized meal portions for the four of us. There were a few green beans, too, and about five yellow … Continue reading Late bloomers
Well, it is getting decidedly cooler when I do my morning rounds! Fall is just around the corner, but things are still holding out in the garden. Here are the gourds growing on the south facing chain link fence. The yellow flowers that you see are the Ozark Nest Egg flowers. If you look at … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: morning in the garden
What a lovely morning to finish up my rounds in the garden! There are quite a few Mongolian Giant sunflowers opening their seed heads. Hopefully, we will see the Hopi Black Dye rows in this area opening soon. They are so cheerful! 🙂 I'm just so happy with how the Red Kuri squash are doing! … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: morning in the garden, and thinking ahead
I finished off my rounds this morning by doing some harvesting in the garden. The beans in particular had plenty to pick. 🙂 I found a yellow bean, growing on a green bean plant! It didn't get picked. It felt completely empty. Any beans it might have had did not develop. I did find one … Continue reading Our 2021 garden: morning harvest and first potatoes, makes for an awesome breakfast!
