Tomatoes growing on a homemade bicycle wheel trellis
What the ?
Unusually pathetic season harvests are often isolated to this or that part of the country, but from what we are hearing, the talk over the virtual fence is that gardeners, farmers and growers across the USA have suffered similar fates. So if you are a newbie earth digger well, then, you are in good company.
Some have attributed to fewer bees or weird weather. What’s your take?
A Garden for All Seasons
How did your summer garden grow? Have you thrown your hands up and are now growing onward with fall and winter preparations?
Yep, that’s right summer will almost be a fleeting memory. It’s not to early to start your fall and winter garden — cabbage, broccoli, radishes, onions, leeks, carrots, peas and more.
Our cupboards overfloweth! More beans, peppers were canned today. I am determined to CAN IT – all and everything that isn’t on the plant.
I still have a bit of catching up to do. I still have yet to put up some frozen pesto cubes (on my to do list) and freeze some more eggplant.
Freedom Gardens Update
The server move is complete, and unfortunately there seems still to be some database error issues. URGH. On top of that ongoing frustration, we are hard at work upgrading the social network plugins to feature new and improve widgets and plugins. Like? For one, meet fellow Freedom Gardeners in your area to chat, swap crops or have a cup of tea. Some of the others: specific groups, newsletter and our very own blog with contributors. Oh, and there’s more, but it’s a secret!
