The Perpetual Garden. October 20, 2008

OK, we’ve had our first hard freezes of the season, my hot peppers got hit, the basil was thankfully all in, and the ‘maters are way done.

So this past weekend I dug up my wierd potatoes (volunteers from one I missed last Autumn) and my red onions and pulled in a big bowl of Hungarian Wax Hots:

…plus the last two summer squash, heheh.

Still out there for the time being is some curley parseley, my stunted celery and a buttload of kale, which will survive for some time yet.

Oh, and my chard is making a come-back, bright new leaves emerging from the stubs of what I thought would be my last cutting!

I pickled some of the peppers and the smaller onions, then threw them in with the pickled hen-of-the-woods I made last week.  Pickled veggies go a long way with me, so I’ll be enjoying these ’till winter sets in!

I pickled some of the peppers

Who do you think you are CR? Peter Piper? heh heh.. That’s some great looking produce you pulled from your garden. Nice work.

They make a pretty picture.

I’m jealous. My veggies just didn’t happen this year.

jeff, welcome! …and it’s a-comin’! 😉

Bobbie, sorry to hear that. In some past seasons I’ve harvested next to nothing, and usually the following year has been escellent! Hope your experience parallels that.
