We spent time shelling beans on a delightful November afternoon. Not much yield by volume – perhaps two cups – and certainly not enough to be self sufficient. Yet, we grew them.
Our started vegetable plants await planting. Low temperatures during several upcoming nights come uncomfortably close to freezing so we are holding off. For now, we bring them out during the day to harden them off.
The rosemary (upper centre) will stay in its pot as will the lemongrass (upper right).
It is a little hard to see the seven asparagus spears in our small ‘spare grass’ patch. We have already enjoyed several fresh spears. The strawberries are starting to flower (though you cannot see the flowers in this image). The haskap bush in the background has flowered and should set fruit soon.
Our sweet potato crop. Though they are not that large, between them, our butternut squash, carrots, and potatoes, we should have homegrown stuff into December if not the new year. With our garden expansion we hope that next year’s crop will be larger.
