Hard to believe we’ve been gardening with our friends for 6 months. The time has flown! We’ve gone out there once or twice a week to work, bringing home more food than we can eat sometimes. We are still harvesting some foods, like tomatoes under the cold frame. We’ll have those maybe even in December, though the crop wasn’t as abundant as we’d hoped.
We’re out the door in 15 minutes to go mushrooming, so I just have time to put up these pictures for you.
This weekend, C. and Jeff helped Kerry (our friend) put up a very large polytunnel. This winter it will keep his equipment dry; come spring we’ll be sowing seeds in it.
The okra is done, but Beth is cultivating ladybugs on the okra stalks. There are so many ladybugs and larvae in that polytunnel! As well as aphids.
We dug up potatoes and picked pumpkins and cucumbers.
The peppers and tomatoes are in full swing.
Green bean, zucchini and cucumber vines went to Beth and Kerry’s sheep. Load after load after load.
Once home, I shelled a bowl full of beans for a warming soup.
And just so you can see… she’s all growed up! This is our puppy Areli, but a year old now. We’re excited to take her to the woods today to go mushrooming for chanterelles. She’s not been off our property since last fall (when we last went mushrooming).
Have a blessed Monday, everyone! I’d love to hear what your garden is doing.
I’m sharing this in Simple Lives Thursday.
