Keryn I hear you I lived in the city for the past 20+ yrs and I hated it in some ways like it in the store was right down the street along with most everything else. You would think it would be quiet out here in the country. WRONG they work 24/7 around here for the past 3-4 months.They started harvesting grapes with their big loud picker at 5:50 this morning right outside my bedroom window.

The purple spuds I grew are purple inside too. I gave them to Nancy yesterday since I shouldn't eat spuds. i asked her to give me a ride to the clinic, since 3 times this week I was seeing lights/spots what ever you want to call them. Along with things going numb, I believe it happens when I am dehydrated, gives me what one doc called a true migraine. Just got back from getting blood work since my BP was up, seeing the lights, I still feel tired, in a fog and cough once in a while.

The kids deserted me which is ok, so on my own again. Still lots to do around here to get it ready to plant next Spring. I still want a greenhouse or coldframes for this year time will tell.

I use so much organic celery for juicing that I have started growing it myself. Started in the greenhouse, I can get some to usable size about July but they are frozen by Nov. Would love to extend that season further. I am trying ginger this coming year in the greenhouse, garlic didn't work well --too much shade. Apples are so plentiful but people are demanding the organic ones & they go really fast. I pick some from the neighbors. So the main thing is carrots--growing better carrots & kale in such a small space. I am expanding. I would like to have an organic farm as there is hardly any corn in the stores. Organic canned corn shelf is empty every time I go there for months now! It's been a beautiful weather year for everything so the demand is simply stripping the supply. Really, this IS the business to be in so many have left farming. I love the videos of Polyface farm. Joel Salatin is on top of the wave. It won't hit the beach anytime soon. . .

Keryn, Nice looking garden.

Yes,  I can grow it all year, it will run up to seed and will have to plant more. The only problem is that my husband hates it and I love it stir fries and salads.

Your celery, do you keep it going year round?

Comment by Keryn, USDA Zone 10 Australia on October 7, 2014 at 10:20pm

The frame is to put netting over them, but not yet when they start to ripen.

Oh yeah, I forgot the strawberry patch, flowering at the moment and a few young ones just starting to grow. not many make it inside, My husband and the black birds eat most of them. Husband is OK, blackbirds NO.

Also a few Orchids just divided, and flower cutting, everything is finding its way under here. Behind it all is the junk area. The bin with the green lid is our green waste bin picked up by the shire every fortnight. We also have a yellow lid one for recycled plastics mostly and red lid one for normal garbage. Our very baby trailer also goes to the tip often.
