Oops!! I did not know it should be a simmer.  I put the bag in a pot, start the heat and let it come to a boil and then turn down to medium heat.  Some day, I guess a bag will probably split on me.  Oh well.

Still pulling one mongo-sized carrot every week. Lasts me all week.
I was just wondering this morning how I should cover them for winter so I can continue pulling one a week. The greens are still tall and beautiful and the MM is still friable...but, it won't be long...

Rose, I planted all 4 packages of the different seeds that I had back in April.  They've never grown this big before but I've never let them stay in this long. So I'd have to say it's time and not variety here.  

But they were ....umm....
thinking
I'll have to go look in the Carrot Week 2017 thread...but one variety was Danvers 126.  Oh, and I never planted them in full sun before either until this year.

Got it ...the remaining 3 varieties were A-#1 Hybrid, Chateney and Scarlet Nantes.

Lunch: my cabbage, onions, and garlic in a Thai curry.
Dinner: Tetsukabuto squash! mashed, as part of late replica-Thanksgiving leftovers. A very nice squash with a flavor that is a little different from butternut, more chestnut-y. My family grew these for a year or two when I was young, and then couldn't find seeds. It's a hybrid between Curcubita maxima (likely a kabocha in this case, rather than a hubburd) and Curcubita moschata (butternut and others). The con of this type is that it won't pollinate itself, and needs another C. moschata or C. maxima plant in the garden to pollinate it. The pros are its flavor and it actually produces in my short season - in part because it has squash vine borer resistance from it's C. moschata parent.

Today is the 60th anniversary of the day when I moved with my family from England to Canada. I was 10 years old at the time. My Dad and an Uncle had already come to Canada six months earlier. I traveled with my Mother, Grandmother, Aunt and three cousins. It was long journey on a prop powered plane. We arrived first in Montreal before flying to Toronto the next day. To celebrate this 60th anniversary, Mrs TD made a delicious meal for the two of us. All the this to finally say that she included one of the SFG grown Canada Crookneck Squash and it was excellent.  Very Happy

Tonight we were eating delicious straight out the garden summer cabbage that was first cut in June then had the stalk cut in a cross to give four small cabbages .
 They have been lightly frosted and as a result they were fantastic .. slightly sweeter than normal & as soft as a wet NICE biscuit dipped in your coffee.

Lettuce!

Post  LizDTM on 12/10/2017, 10:55 am

I have a lot of lettuce and mustard spinach ready to harvest, so I'm going to have a nice salad along with some roasted beets and a steak for lunch today.
