My Humble Garden

This year I have enjoyed the best garden I have had yet in my 4 years of gardening.

I planted Crooked Neck Squash, Purple Haze carrots and lots of beets. Also, potatoes, corn, peas, beans, lettuce, onions, herbs, tomatoes (which are still very green) and other squashes.

My mom bought me an amazing weeding tool last year. I used it faithfully this year until it didn't stop raining and when it did, it was too late. The weeds had grown and the ground was hard packed. But in the midst of it all, I am able to harvest some yummy produce. So far, I have pickled 80 lbs of beets and still have about 100 lbs more to go. I would like to can some in my pressure cooker for borscht. I still need to harvest all my carrots, which I will dehydrate.
