PNW NOV Update

Post  Furbalsmom on 11/3/2010, 2:14 am

I think I have finally hit the wall with my tomatoes. PNW is not a good place to grow them, but I did have several ripen during October. I am now ready to pull the last plants out and make a bit of relish from the green tomatoes.

The sugar snap peas, cucumbers and pole beans have already been pulled and those areas cleaned up. Hope to get the rest of the old SFG cleaned up, weeded and the Artichokes and Strawberries mulched with straw very soon.

My fall planting of broccoli and cauliflower survived the first round of cabbage worms, but they still have a way to go.

The garden is near the far end of our lot and with the seasonal rain that has started here, I prefer to keep my daily salad greens really close. (and me dry) Several varieties of lettuce continue to be harvested from my front porch where they are planted in MM filled containers. All of my baby pac choi has been pulled, cleaned and eaten. It was so good.

Still waiting for my three Table Tops so I can begin growing in MM instead of the amended soil in my old SFG, based on the first SFG book. DH got caught up in a few projects and has not yet started the TTs but most of the materlials are ready and waiting for him

Fall Asparagus crowns have not yet arrived. Garlic, Shallots, Walking Onions have arrived, but not yet planted. Hopefully everything will be done no later than Nov 10th.



Please let us know how your garden grows. Pictures are always welcome.

12 small broccoli plants-they all have small heads



10 squares of carrots in winter storage/one square of parsnips



Potato onions on the left half and garlic on the right. I guess time and weather will tell me if I planted them too early.



The last of the lettuce and spinach in among the strawberries.



Tabletops put to bed.






16 squares of beets in winter storage.



I have three BS plants left to harvest after another frost or two.



Here's to better weather in 2011 bottoms up

Boffer

Explain the fourth picture. How did you build it? Does it turn? What happens to it in the wind?

No, it doesn't turn because I didn't think of it! Darn!

Here's a pic from late May so you can see the bottom.



It's made from fan cages that had dead motors, a chain link fence post, rebar, and some misc 'stuff'. The bottom of the legs have outrigger feet on them. I didn't think about wind; I'll be finding out soon enough though. One of the reasons I cover my beds is the high winds I get in Nov-Dec that fill the beds with fir needles.
