Here are a few photos of our vegetable bounty from the last month or two:
|A photo from back in July of the "greens" section of the Kitchen Garden: onions, celery, cabbage, chard, Brussels sprouts and carrots in the center.|
|Pumpkins and watermelons last month.|
|Potatoes harvested in late August.|
|When we pulled out the superfluous sunflowers, we found this hoard of old cucumbers that my son had grown and left in a pile, which we thought was funny.|
|Some beautiful tomatoes.|
|The peppers did very well this year too.|
|Pumpkins against a backdrop of sweet corn gone over. We'll let the corn stalks stand|
over winter to provide some windbreak for the chicken pen behind (to the south).
|Rainbow-colored chard. Quite pretty, I think.|
My husband and I are still learning much about vegetable growing, and we make mistakes all the time. But I believe that we're becoming more knowledgeable each year, and the Kitchen Garden improves each season.
Thanks for reading! -Beth
