Garden Growing

We're having a good year with things growing in the garden. I think we have jalapeno's and zucchinis coming out the ears. We've been canning tomatoes and making pickles. Looking into setting up a booth at the local Farmer's Market next year. Could be an interesting possibility for us. We're happy that we have a few baby giant pumpkins. Ben was afraid the chickens had ruined all chances - but the plant is looking good and doing well.

Ben has been reading the book - Carrots Love Tomatoes
and is finding it to be very useful.
We're coming to the end of the summer growing season and have started planning the fall plantings for spring crops. Looking forward to the weeks ahead.
