How well did you time your harvest?

Post  BackyardBirdGardner on 11/23/2011, 10:45 am

After all the struggles with the critters digging up what I put in, I still came out ok. I'm too lazy to repost, so you'll have to click the blog.. http://throughmyeyes-choppography.blogspot.com/

I still have spinach coming and peas finally blooming. Will they make it before a super hard freeze? The next 10 days will tell.

How'd you all do?

These were planted in late August/early Sept. I just pulled them at 10:30am EST. I'm really happy. I'm taking the radishes to Dad today (he's knows I was growing them but thought I lost them due to weather) and that little hand in the left lower corner is now on his 3rd carrot. He didn't even wash the first one off , Let's just say I freaked out! LOL Oh, disregard the picture date, DH forgot to reset the date. Grrr!

Overall so far so good (for my first year) a few of the radish's split, not quite sure what caused that (they still tasted fine) peas are growing nicely, garlic is growing nicely, beets are just about ready I think (although didn't grow that large) and I've got an errant potato growing up under the SFG, not sure what I'm going to do with that (I put the SFG on top of where I used to have my vegetable garden, guess I left a potato in the ground).

Here's a pic

I timed it well enough to have beets for Thanksgiving, but too late for other fall crops to be ready for harvest. I still have baby sized spinach, lettuce, carrots and brussel sprouts under cover. Next year, I'll understand that fall crop doesn't mean planting in the fall!

JZ, the carrots I harvested for yesterday's dinner, I planted in April. Carrots are notoriously slow, but store well right where they are grown, throughout our winter.

Thanks, boffer. Since all my beds except the asparagus are in place this year, I'll be able to start earlier. Can't wait!!!! Totally home-made/grown/caught dinner for next year!
Mmmmmm that crab was fabulous! bounce
