After the early despair I detailed here and the early summer bounty that ensued it has exceeded my expectations.
We ended up using all the lettuce (2 varieties) and did a second planting (of 2 different varieties) which we are just beginning to harvest now.
We had a bumper crop of carrots (I may have forgotten to thin them when they sprouted) and we have had to harvest them all as the puppy eats carrots as a snack and when he discovered there was an entire planter full we had "trouble".
|About half the crop|
Last weekend I cut up all the veggies that were ready (and a zucchini from the farm) and made some pasta sauce for the freezer. It will be like eating a mouthful of summer when we use it so I am saving it for the darkest, drearierest January day.
Its been a great veggie season....better than some. As usual we didn't plan far enough ahead to have a full Fall crop ...... next year, next year.
Oh....and..... our rain barrel lasted all summer (so far) dry as it was......such a great investment.
Did you grow a veggie garden this year?
