It’s time to harvest our crop.
The potatoes were huge.
We picked all the tomatoes, bell pepper, cantaloupe and pulled the plants and composted them. Unfortunately most of the tomatoes are varying shades of green. I will put them in window sill and paper bags. I am dehydrating some to make sun-dried tomatoes. We are talking about making fried green tomatoes tomorrow. I have never eaten them, but have been told they are delicious. The cantalope were pretty to look out but unripe. We composted them. We are airing out the poly tunnel. We cleaned out our storage room.
We need to hang it in the attic for the season in the next couple of days that is weather permitting. We need to harvest the celery. Clean the mini green house inside and out. It is filthy. Then we need to lay hay around the roots of the celery. I will have to wait until spring to see if they have survived. Then I can place my ceramic pots that contain my spices in it to protect them from harsh weather. We have had frost 3 days in a row. We need to clean,dry and store our garden furniture. The grass looks like it needs one more grass cutting for the season. We should be pretty much set for the winter.
