  • Some plants are waning in the garden while others are waxing. The cucumbers, zucchini and corn are done. I pulled the cukes a week ago and got the zucchini a few days ago. The corn is still drying and will be ready to pick for seed soon. The rest…well, you will have to take a peek through…

    lettuce2
    The lettuce mix we started is doing wonderfully! I need to harvest some soon. I haven’t even tried it yet!

    beets2
    I’m excited for the beets. I’ve never had them and so this will be a great opportunity to try them out.

    carrots2
    Most of the carrots are doing well. I had to thin them out finally…rather I finally got around to doing it. I felt bad pulling out little carrots but it’s all about getting the most out of your harvest I suppose.

    kalebed
    This bed has collards (the small ones), kale and I think some sort of oriental cabbage. The cabbage is the biggest of all.

    turnips2
    This is the turnip and radish bed. Most of the radishes are picked so all that is left are the turnips. I’m going to harvest some turnip greens and try them out while I let the roots continue growing.

    purplehull
    We didn’t plant these purple hull beans, but they were in the community plot and the lady who runs the garden said some would be ready this last weekend so I went ahead and grabbed a few to try out.

    The watermelon radishes were finally ready for harvest. They were gigantic!

    Love the radishes! The only thing I forgot to take a photo of were the Brussels sprouts…oh well.

    I’m interested to see how our winter is here because I’m curious on winter tomatoes. Yes, I’m still on Florida mode on these. It seems Texas sucks for tomatoes, the growing season is narrow, with periods of spring and fall being the best. Summer is too hot. Winter too cold. But, maybe, just maybe, here in NW Houston we could get some winter tomatoes. I’ll have to see how this winter goes.

      Last summer was too hot for my tomatoes too. I will be trying something new next year by putting them in shade during the hottest part of the days. Let them have their 5 hours of required sun in the early morning and some mid-day but most of the hot daytime and all evening hour sunlight will be full shade. Hopefully that will help them along and let them last through the summer. At least if next summer is as bad as this one past it cannot be worse right?
