Not sure if I should laugh or cry at that!

I planted some garlic on October 3rd and when I pulled out the broccoli plants in the adjacent squares (so I can put a cover over the box) I disturbed one of the garlic cloves and it has roots! That is good, right? I buried it again, sharpish.

I've still got carrots and parsnips growing in another box, plus some sweetpeas which have flowers on so I haven't the heart to pull them up.

No getting away from the fact that summer is over though. The temperature is supposed to drop to 3°C next week.

Winding Down?

Howdy Folks:

I'm Winding Up! Building 4X4 Table Top boxes, converting 2X8's to Table Tops, propergating strawberries (600 so far), mixing MM, going out and getting more horse, goat and municipal compost. Gathering supplies to make weed proof landscaping for under the boxes etc. Onions re-sprouted from the spring plantings. One squash plant still making squash, tomatoes have slowed down and only a few plants left. Cabbage looks great. Un-harvested potatoes from the spring have suddenly put up new green tops. And yesterday found where a nursery had tossed out summer plants in quart size containers and got as much as I could haul away. The plants are done for but the soil in them is almost MM so we will mix that in with our home-made MM. Yep, I'll wind down in a bit, but, right now I'm having a blast.

God Bless, Ward and Mary.
