Wax Beans, Yessah!
Very quickly beans can go big and tough on you, so I got out there yesterday and battled the Baby Pam Pumpkins, which are their neighbors expounding everywhere, and harvested most of what is ready and still tender. We'll have a lot more coming due and the green beans planted along with them have only started to flower, so I'll be able to put more of those up as well. It felt a fitting activity for today, I'm feeling the precurser to winter on the edge of the season. Time to get the crops stored, the firewood stacked and plans started for the winter to come.
A close tour of the garden also yielded a status on the little plot. First, let me say, I've got tomatoes. Oh, yessah, I've got tomatoes. I planted many different types, most of which I can't identify because the tags are faded. Bad planning on my part. I'm going to get a photo inventory of them all and ask Laura as she's the one I got all the seedlings from. In any case, so far they are quite unique!
This is a tour of my little garden, on it's way to becoming foodstuffs. What does your garden look like? Did you stop by the farmer's market to check out the produce there? Local is where it's at, friends!
Here's to many garden adventures, ~Peacemom
