Its slowing down,
the last summer Cucumbers were pulled out yesterday along with a few of our fall Radishes, Turnips, Yams and Herbs; all were served with our Thanksgiving supper 🙂
Now we wait for a few more fall treats; Peas, Beets, Leeks, Spinach, Brussel Sprouts..
Broccoli, Carrots , Beans
Parsnips , Kale, Lettuce and Cauliflower.
In the Greenhouse the Basil is waiting to be pulled out, it wont last much longer with our cooler nights, but the Peppers and Yams are still growing 🙂
Thinking of all my Family and Friends, especially this past Thanksgiving weekend and feeling very grateful for each and everyone of you!
This started in Feb with the attempt to sprout 3 Yams ; 1 is organic
It was the only one that sent out slips
the other two had a few roots but no signs of sprouting..
This is what the slips looked like before dividing them into..
4 healthy looking plants
I planted them in potting soil and let them root for 2 more weeks,
then transplanted them into 15 gal pots
They love the heat so we’ll keep them in the greenhouse.
Looking forward to seeing how they progress 🙂
This my favourite time of year and its going by quickly…
Here’s what happening in the garden…
