Look what I have harvested out of the mini-greenhouse and the Poly-tunnel today!! I am making our 3rd batch of tomato sauce and 2 batches of sun-dried tomatoes with these today.
Hubby has been busy in the vegetable garden today. He has weeded it and getting ready to put compost dirt, ash and bone meal on it. We are going to transfer the strawberries to the larger bed beside it. Later we will plant garlic for next year. I have the last of the cucumbers to pickle with green tomatoes and carrots. Then he will pull up the cucumber plants for the year.
I read on Mother Earth News today that we should not have pulled up our Celery roots and thrown them in the compost heap. We should have cut the celery and left the heart of it attached with roots and left them in our mini green house for next year. They would have survived the winter and produced again next year. I was sick when I read that. Oh well, we live and learn something new everyday. We will be doing that next year with our Celery and see how many survive the winter. This link below gives advice on storing your harvest.

I have enjoyed learning how to put up a Blog and meeting people from all over the world who share similar interest. I have learned so much from all of you just to name a few things like nutrition, environment, cooking and best of all gardening. It has been a great 8 months for me and I hope for all of you as well. I even was nominated for the Dragons Loyalty Award. I was flattered and shocked.
