Backyard Garden Plot Pictures – Week 44 of 52
We had a huge windstorm yesterday that knocked branches down all over the place but luckily nothing hit our greenhouse or damaged our garden. We’ve got a lot of cleanup to do towards the back of our property but nothing major thank goodness.
For early November, I think our garden boxes are doing pretty well. We’ve got carrots, beets, leeks, turnips, radishes, chard, kale and peas growing. I’m not sure if the peas will make it, but we’ll see.
Remember that lasagna garden I started a few weeks ago? Well I’ve been piling leaves and dirt on top of the heap every chance I get. Eventually I’ll divide the space up into four square but for now it’s just easier to toss everything into a big pile.
Now that our fall greenhouse clean up is finally done all that’s left to do is keep the plants inside the greenhouse watered and look in on them every once in a while. Because the temperatures are colder now, it will take everything a little longer to grow, but I think it will be worth it in the end.
So remember all those potatoes that I grew under the pumpkin mounds? Well, about 2/3rds of them still need to be dug up. I keeping thinking I’m going to go out there and harvest them but then I get side tracked and totally forget about it. Maybe this week?
And last but not least, our giant maple tree is nearly naked. 🙁
Are your trees looking pretty bare these days too?
Well, that’s about it. Have a great Sunday everyone, and stay warm.
