Right now my beets are just growing in the blue pot on the end. Everything got planted late this yr. due to the move and lack of tilled up land. They have only been in there a short while so no using the roots yet. Haven't had to cover anything as it has been warm. Someone was telling me they are predicting 90s even in Oct. and a mild winter. Don't know where they got their info but hope it is true. I HATE WINTER!

Vicky, are you covering your beets for late crop? Mine will freeze so now is the time to start using them up. I was cutting leaves during the summer. My seed packet on spinach says to pull the whole plant, but that is spring & they are light sensitive so June brings on flowering. This time of year I planted new zealand types in the greenhouse & they do not last all winter since it is unheated, but it's a 35 day time frame. Chard will grow some, sit during winter & come again in spring. I am testing kale & cabbage inside but unheated this winter.

These are still areas of shame

So excited to see more good bugs like this cute little lady. Still lots of bees too.

? Can I cut my beet greens and use them and have the roots still grow? They look so good right now, not like the ones at the last house that were all full of leaf miners. Is spinach a cut and come again?

Just realized today is 2 days before the new moon. I got lots of things growing in the blue pots. Cuke and beans still growing well toms ripening slow zuc slowed and has lots of powdery mildew. I did go to an Estate sale on Friday and scored an other composter like the one I already had, Rubbermaid one that looks like a little house. The guy there thought it was a little house to put over your pump. It doesn't have it's little front door and is aged but I talked him down from $25 to $20 then they added tax. grrrr Just took new pics outside so will put them in and be right back.

"Thank you, Keryn. Our street (and the whole town) does have lots of lovely big old tall trees. Our commute to and from NYC to work is about 90 minutes each way, but it's a price we are willing to pay to live here."
