Year of the backyard:
Well, it’s been going pretty good. After all the storms and replanting at the beginning of the season, we have managed to yield quite a bit of food.
I’ve made 2 large batches of fridge pickles, 2 large batches of tomato basil soup, used the garden spoils in juicing recipes, and I’ve frozen a bit as well.
My peas got some kind of disease, and my cucumbers and corn look like they have contracted it as well.
Besides the struggles, we have had a constant stream of basil, mint, dill, cilantro, green peppers, lavender, tomatoes, green beans, sugar snap peas, Jalpenos, Swiss chard, and endless Kale. I’m also growing Lemongrass, which needs to be harvested ASAP.
This was quite the learning year. I already have plans for next year!
