LOVE the fresh Veggies. Makes it all worth it. we've had squash tomatoes cucumbers and beans steady for a couple weeks. damn squash bugs got to our plants so hopefully the second planting will give us some in a while.


I know a lot about a lot of things BUT I still have a lot to learn.
Life is what you make of it. So, why not make a working machine to make it easier.

We would be lost without our veggies! A lot of work,--BUT the taste of your own home grown stuff cant be bought from anyplace! We are still trying to do onions and sweetcorn in the freeze drier . Corn started getting ready , so we had to switch to it and do a couple runs, or however many we can get before it gets too hard. Also putting some in pint jars and running the pressure canner at the same time! Everything comes in at the same time and its a bear to get a handle on the harvest.
We have people come get whatever they want and usually not much ever goes to waste from our gardens.

got around to steamin some pumpkin and Virginia made some pies from the first batch.
We are putting some of the pumpkin in the freezer and will try one batch in the freeze-drier to see if that will work,---never did it before, so it just a test.
Finally got most of the onions done. Gave 400 pounds of them to the food bank.

This first pumpkin weighed 16 pounds. the one I am holding weighs 31 pounds. Most of the rest range from 10 to 15 pound range average.

This is the best commercial pie pumpkin out there. Steams down to a non-stringy pie ready filler, just add sugar, eggs, milk, cinnamon, and what ever you want to it, pour into the pan and bake.

The last pic is the big boy at 31 pounds.
Garden is winding down for the season with a lot of rain now making it hard to do and fall work. Hope to plow before the ground freezes.

Dont look like I will get gardens plowed this fall due to the weather. I think the ground is about ready to freeze from the looks of the forecasts for the next week or so.
Need to dig some horseradish roots up and grind them. Usually do enough to last the winter then early spring do the summer allotment so we have some to use the year round and it's always fresh that way. It keeps good in the fridge for 6 months or so,---longer in the deep freezer if you needed to.
