Harvest Time

We have had a wonderful year for our kale and chard. Our beets and carrots are great too. We have made garden meals with everything coming from our beds.
 Today was harvest day for our onions and garlic. Our garlic is average. I think it may have needed more moisture in our dry climate. It amazes me that it takes so long to grow. In two months I will plant again for next year. The onions are doing their first cure in the sun on the deck before we bring them in for more curing. The garlic is in the garage. We have a piece of rabbit fence set out to dry them on.
This week it will be time to plant for the Fall garden. I am going to plant more lettuce, radishes, mustard greens, turnip greens, and collard greens. You can take the boy out of the South, but you can't take the South out of the boy.
