Thursday Tid Bits

The days are getting shorter and the evenings much cooler. It is time to put the garden to bed for the winter. There are a few musk melons left along with the potatoes and carrots. Harvey picked all the onions yesterday and they have been drying. I am hopeful that the carrots and potatoes will be picked, washed and either dried or prepped for winter storage.

The garden did not produce as it usually has. We got very few tomatoes, green peppers, chili pepper or jalapeno peppers either. As far as beans, well we managed one picking of just enough for one meal. I am afraid the freezer is pretty bare as far as frozen veggies this winter.

Even my flowers did not grow as well as other years.

The weather was extremely hot and dry which could be what caused the problem.

Tomorrow I plan on finishing drying the last of the herbs. 

Everybody have a wonderful evening.

God bless.
