One Bed Down and 99 To Go


The garden is slowly winding down and I’m getting into clean-up mode.  This has been a so-so year in terms of productivity, both in terms of the gardens yield and how much I got done.   I’ve tried a few strategies in the past in the hopes of getting ahead of the game and none have been as successful as I would have liked.  One of my goals this winter is to spend some time thinking about the basics of what I want to accomplish and how to go about doing that.  More importantly, I need to be (more) realistic when it comes to time restraints, which I realize has been my major downfall up until now.

But I’ll get into all that once I figure out my plan.  For now, I’ll share some pics that I took this morning.  I’m harvesting a bit of surprise kale recently:

Onions Harvested...and all is good :)


The summer has, once again, flown by and we are now into the cooler (and dare I say, much more pleasant!) autumn weather.  I’ve been away in Salt Lake City and, now that I’m back, it’s time for some final harvests and garden cleanup to begin.

The onions were the first crop on my “to harvest” list.  My intention had been to harvest them before I left, in the first couple of days of September, but I ran out of time.  I was actually quite concerned that they may not be fairing that well over the past couple of weeks as we’ve had a lot of rain.  Well, my concern was all for naught.

Hello my pretty...
