    Default Today's rainy day pickings

    Decided I needed a snack, garden wet but doing well.
    Almost the end of season for some stuff, time to put more in the freezer soon.
    side shoot of broccoli, 2nd cutting, will steam it for supper.
    turnips doing well, big & sweet, may do like John said & put some up for moose stew.
    carrots also good eating. another moose stew addition.
    toms & cucs still producing.
    Gonna snack now,

    Mudbuddy, yesterday I thinned my carrots for about the 3rd time.. finally got some big enough to chop up steam and bag for the freezer.. planting them your way in the raised bed, I may have an over abundance this year, because I also planted a 2nd row back in the regular garden.. Thankfully, my Son's family enjoy any garden produce I give them... I have one more head of cauliflower to prepare for the freeZer.. my cucumbers are slowing down a little.. but we have more tomatoes turning ripe every day now... Sure wish I'd have built a greenhouse a few years ago....

    My cucs slowing down too. very few females to pollenate, 2 in the last week.
    Cool enough at night the the tomato blooms now won't make anything. Hope the hanging fruit all ripen.
    11 days it'll be moose season. Hope to take some to camp.
    Do moose like tomatoes ??? may make good bait

    Glad to here you Green House is working well, makes the effort all worth it when you eat a vine ripened tomato/
    why didn't you have a GH a few years ago??? LOL
    But now you do, that's the important part.

    Yes
    I think the extra warmth helps, gotta keep them watered well too.
