I picked my green tomatoes before the first frost, here in Middle Tennessee.
Keryn sorry no rain for you, we have been getting all kinds of rain lately and I need to mow the lawn at the school. Should have done it Mon when it was nice but Nancy called and said her husband was going to bring his tractor over to move my huge weeds. He did but not until this morning, then it rained again so lawn too wet. So I went thrift store shopping. Still have tomatoes hanging out there ripening slowly. The lettuces are big in the pots. Damn leaf miners still ruining my beets and think getting into the spinach. GRRRR! Guess I'm going to have to try covering them next time I try since I can't get away from those horrible pests they were bad in Tri-cities too. Now that I am feeling better I am watching Rehab Addict and Thrift Flip trying to get inspired to do something around here. Of course it is 3ish AM and I'm not sleeping. An other person is supposed to be helping me get this place winterized and he has been down in his back for 3 days and acting like a zombie. Grrrr! He did get the front and back door more secure but not perfect yet. So much to do and I shut down cause I can't get it done.Keryn do you still get the lady from Australia's newsletters? I'll try to get it to link up in here, I tried to send it as is to my email and since it is sent to my email it takes me there.
Everything I had in during winter has run up to flower, so have to plant more seeds to get me through summer.
Still having trouble with this, can,t get the timing right, trial and error I guess. Its a hard climate for veggies , shade cloth archs will help how long my crops last this year and cut back on water. Already had a few 90f days and October as seen NO rain except the last couple of days, which was not enough to show up in the rain gauge. Just wet the leaves of plants, no soil penetration.
I have all kinds of old garlic that moved with me & some 75% off from Bi-Mart. Shoved a bunch into the big blue pots and still have an other batch to plant somewhere. Planted more long time ago in the herb garden along the back.
William I hear you was reading Burpee prices on puter the other day. Elephant garlic was $15 for 1/2 oz and it said the bulbs weighed one oz. so you wouldn't even get one whole one. I also asked them why online is so much more expensive than going to a store to buy their same seed? $5-$6 compared to like $2.97. I do even better than that at Fred Meyer when they have 1/2 & 40% off or buy one get one or 2 and get one.
Vicky, cleaning my beds up some what. Pulled the cuks out and some melons, still have a few melons to pull today. Garlic is coming up I planted last summer from the harvest. I didn't think it would grow so I planted some more that I got from the grocery store which was cheaper than the S-arks catalog at $15.00 and the store 2.95. My leeks are doing great, I'll take some pics.
At least you can grow orchids, we can't. They are pretty just not edible, that's all I care that we can eat or enjoy looking at our flowers.
Well I,m being bad and Vicky will scold me, the orchids are hanging under the shade cloth veggie arch. I can still plant plenty of veggies underneath. LOL
Just noticed the new moon is the 23rd Thurs. get planting your above ground growers.
