Well, there isn't much going on here! I'll be popping over to Daphne's Dandelions to see what other (more southerly) gardeners have on the go this week. My harvests are quickly diminishing week by week.
But I still have something to show! This big basket of kale and fresh lettuce greens was cut Thursday night ... just before the frost hit.
I pulled the one carrot (pictured above) just because it seemed so big but was planning to wait to harvest the rest. And then I noticed a lot of nibbling. First the swiss chard went. When I got home after work tonight, I noticed the carrots were starting to get nibbled so I pulled them as well (the carrots in the upper right need to be trimmed of minor damage). Some of these are Jeanette and I'm not sure of the other variety.
And here is my first attempt at corn ... I knew my attempt was a failure some time ago but just left them to do their thing. After the frost, the three sisters garden died off completely (I was able to harvest some beans but none of the Red Kuri squash grew fruit at all). The corn clearly did not grow to full size but some of the kernels (is that what they are called?) did. Seems strange to me, I would have thought the entire cob started with small kernels all over then grew larger uniformly. I'm pretty sure this isn't normal. But it was an experiment and I'll study over the winter (I'll read lots of gardening blogs for tips and advice!) and see what I can do to make it better next year.
Oh my, that's the entire roundup tonight, folks! Not much to harvest but plenty already picked and stored that needs to be eaten.
