Our garlic is in, forty five bulbs worth. That is enough to plant this fall and have plenty to use in cooking well into, if not all the way through, winter. While probably not enough to be completely self sufficient, it is enough to reduce our dependence on store bought garlic.

More of our gardens’ bounty. Butternut squash, sweet potatoes (and more to come!), and an experiment with corn. I think this is the only ear we got; we should do a little better next year once some trees are pruned which will allow more sunlight to reach the garden.

Season of plenty

From upper right: Home-grown garlic; home-grown red and purple potatoes; and a ‘basket’ of vegetables – snap peas, cherry and grape tomatoes, vine tomatoes, bell peppers, and onion, and radishes – from the nursery at the edge of town. All organic goodness. How blessed we are to have our own little garden and a good nursery in our little town.
