Topic: How Does Your Garden Grow?
I pulled up the last of the garden produce today - the carrots. This is the best crop of them I have ever had, though most of them were stubby they made up for it in girth.
This batch is about 1/4 of the total I got from the single barrel I planted.
I dug the last of the Yukon Gold potatoes last week and transfered them to cold storage. I got tired of throwing out every 5th one because the squirrels ate chunks out of them. Why don't they eat the purple potatoes? We didn't like them much anyway! So I left the rest of the purples in the ground and the squirrels can eat on them all they want this winter. I'll dig up and discard the remains in the spring and plant only the kinds WE like - and then try to figure out a way to keep our squirrel friends out of them.
