    Xan and the beanstalk

    Photo-upload-413326?1409091485 The fall shelling beans are mostly in, and sprouted. Once the zucchini comes out next week I think I'll have room for about 25 more, which should get me through the year. I planted four types: Black turtle, hidatsa red, pinto, and hutterite. Didn't differentiate the plantings because I'll be a...

    Grapes

    Photo-upload-413325?1409090917 Four years ago I put concord grapes on my porch to replace the gorgeous but newly invasive sweet autumn clematis. This year it paid off. The lower porch rails are filled with the vines, and I've got my harvest coming up. Last year I got only two bunches, which never quite ripened. The birds ar...

    Mostly sunny, the drain-away, and more hot rocks

    Photo-upload-413336?1409117803 Yesterday after a day hunched over the computer doing finances for the potters' guild etc., I went out and yanked some more of the soaker hose. One way of getting some exercise and a good sweat going. Running back and fore with kettles of boiling water was good exercise too - I had to move a big ...

    Tomatoes Coming Up Strong - And So Is Autumn

    Photo-upload-413736?1409500260 It sure feels like autumn's coming up, and I've even spotted some leaves starting to change. I'm not overly thrilled about that, but I am sure thrilled with the tomatoes and how amazingly well they've been doing this year. I've had the best tomato harvests and plants I've ever grown, and the we...

    And here comes fall

    Photo-upload-413762?1409508468 Large harvest including all the remaining potatoes, couple large eggplants, smattering of tomatoes (terrible tomato year), carrots, chinese broccoli. So I've got a "roots" basket (1) and a "ratatouille" basket (main), which is what I'll make for dinner tonight. Fall clean up has started. S...

    Just doing a tidy up a bit..

    Now that the colder months here are drawing to a close, with spring literally around the corner, next week, its time for a tidy up of gardens. Here on folia and outside as well. So some of my gardens will be archived and some new ones started. Well until we do the next move, once we have so...
