Getting ready to can some tomatillo, pepper and tomato salsa
Some of our Pumpkins and Squash
Turkish Turban Squash
Squash vines pulled
Pumpkin patch cleaned ready for cover crop
Potato bed cleaned and ready for cover crop.
I pulled a lot of leaves from my tomato plants, covered them with row covers to protect fruit from sunburn, kept leaves and fruit from touching the ground, and drip watering. No blight this year!
One of my favorite beans. Surprise it grows here! Planted the beans along the edges of my raised strawberry bed. Turned out really yummy and pretty.
Late Summer garden. I moved some of my beautiful pepper plants inside. More pictures to come on saving garden plants inside.
Golden Yukons did the best this year. I also planted fingerlings and red potatoes.
Tomato seeds for next years garden are drying
Cherry Tomatoes, basil, and cucumber
Bok Choi from our garden salted for homemade kimchi
My only musk melon. I saved the seeds.
I can’t believe I actually grew one up here in the foothills of the Oregon Cascades!
Some pretty tomatoes. I grew over 300 bushes and canned over 50 quarts of tomatoes this year.
Hello everyone! Fall is here and my gardens are transitioning from late summer to fall. Today I am canning salsa. I will be pulling tomatoes for the compost pile and storing green tomatoes for ripening. I have a ton of pictures and recipes to share with you this fall. I also will be starting a separate page for my art. My family projects for winter and fall will include learning to read and play music on our piano and little Melody Lap harp, learning some Spanish, planting and tending our fall and winter garden, articulating a chicken skeleton, and of course painting! We have a huge reading list as well. This fall and winter will be filled with family, food, art, and laughter. So much fun can be found while working on things we love to do.
