I’ve been super busy with the gardens and haven’t been inside much to post to WordPress. I am going to make a huge effort to post at least once a week during the height of garden, canning, and harvest season. Miss reading everyone’s post as well.
Beautiful sunset here in foothills of the Cascades near Eugene Oregon
Me and my bitch face. What? I have to cook and do dishes too?
Beans will start flowering this week.
Sprouts for winter garden, cabbage, kale, onions, collards, beets, and chard. Too hot to plant but you can start them indoors and transplant!
Tobacco and Tomatillos
I have over 300 hundred tomato plants. I guess I will be selling some tomatoes this year. I got kind-of carried away since I didn’t grow enough last year.
Tomatillos are 4 foot tall!
A bed of very healthy squash and pumpkin plants.

Potatoes are falling back and dying off from heat. I planted squash which will grow over the dying potato vines.
Lettuce bed is happy, salads and juice from our bed every day. I am starting more lettuce sprouts for this fall. I start new lettuce plants every two weeks to keep my bed going.
Garlic is dying off. I will pull German Red and Braiding Garlic the end of August. I hang the garlic in bunches from my apple trees. An old timers way of drying garlic.
