September Update

Last week I planted a row of winter carrots and beet greens.  These are cold weather varieties Napoli (carrots) and Bull's Blood beet greens.  I don't have any sprouts in the row yet, but once it sprouts I will then cover the row with a fabric hoop so I can (hopefully) harvest into November and maybe even later.  I have a few other greens I will be trying out in my greenhouse also. Red Leaf Lettuce, Claytonia (cold weather green) and a cold weather Arugula variety.  I will keep you posted as I go with this project.  For now, here are a few videos updating you on the garden and greenhouse.  Also one video of Rocco and Rambo the rooster. 

Below are a couple of photos of some of the tomato harvest.  We have picked triple this amount.  I canned pasta sauce out of some of them.  Brandywine, Roma, Grape, and Better Boy tomatoes.

Dilly Beans I canned 10 pints!

Here is my farm dog who is also a rescue Rocco!
