Well, it is about time I do a garden update. Luckily a few things continue to produce despite my severe neglect. Tomatoes, peppers, and cukes continue to ripen despite the cool night temperatures. Raspberries and green beans are still producing, and then there are those leeks that I will be harvesting in the months to come. Almost all greens have been eaten by creatures, only the carrots under plastic protection remain from my many, many sowings in recent months. Thank goodness the chard from spring is 'cut-and-come-again' or I would have nothing green and leafy to harvest. Ever.
I am dying to know what the sweet potatoes will give this year. They are vining like mad, but the last time I peaked in there was not any tuber formation to speak of. I am behaving and staying out of there for now, and desperately hoping for some kind of harvest in October.
The Yellow Potato Onions arrived (and there they sit in their box). These are multiplying onions. Think shallots...only onions, and that about sums them up. I keep telling myself they are all I will grow for onions next year, but who am I kidding? I just need a bigger plot. These babies will need a few years to get established and start providing more than seed.
