I love to work in the garden early in the morning or late in the evening after the sun has gone behind the mountain. Hubby does most of the gardening in the last three years and I’ve help do the harvesting and putting away for winter stores. This year doesn’t seem to be much of a gardening year. I noted in an earlier post that we had gotten unusual amounts of rain for our area and cooler temps and that we hadn’t been able to get our hay harvest complete. Well, we haven’t had much luck gardening either. This is what a garden is NOT supposed to look like.
Hubby decided it will be best to salvage the onions and potatoes. We started pulling onions because some are rotting in the ground. He pulled one row and I laid them out to dry and we’ll pray they dry good and keep over the winter.
Hubby dug a two hills of potatoes to check on their growth and to make sure they weren’t rotting too. They’re much nicer than last years crop and they’re Yukon Gold potatoes.
We’re not terribly concerned about our lack of a garden this year though we love to be fixing fresh vegies straight out of the garden but we have so much canned goods in the cellar from last year that is still so good. We definitely won’t go hungry this winter.
