late October

sweet potatoes

The sweet potatoes have been dug up.  About 16 pounds from 9 slips (not including the ones we found later while turning over the bed).

green bell peppers

The green bell peppers were harvested and sautéed with onions for pizza topping. The last of the tomatoes and cayenne peppers were taken in, plants dug up and composted.

The garlic is planted – about 60 of Spanish Roja and about 30 of Erik’s German White.  We dug in a couple of wheelbarrows full of shredded leaves, planted the cloves about 2 inches deep and six inches apart, then topped with a couple of inches of straw mulch.

  1. Hi Jenna, Your garden looks lovely. I dream of growing my own vegetables but we don’t have a garden. At the moment we have lots of pots on the steps and window sill. We grow herbs and tomatoes and flowers.
