Two weeks away from the garden shows.
Overgrown, dried … and still productive.
A bean plant made itself at home with one of our apple trees before we left. We’ve been snacking on the beans.
An eggplant made itself at home here, and gave us a small gift of thanks.
Tomatoes hiding coyly. They went into tonight’s stew.
A guest who also enjoys the beans.
Concord grapes, almost ripe.
Corn, almost nine feet tall.
Ants ate away at the top of the carrot, causing it to split. Some of these carrots will go to the chickens.
Even so, Bryon harvested plenty of good ones. I made a carrot cake for my staff and Bryon made a stew for dinner.
The kale had a severe infestation of what Bryon calls “those oversexed bugs”. We have to spray and pull out the kale to get rid of them. If we had been here we might have been able to control this … maybe.
Large-leaf lettuce, gone to seed. Bryon cleared this out by hand and found a nasty surprise.
Strategically-placed shovels help Bryon deal with rattlesnakes he finds in the garden.
