    The last couple of weeks we had some frosts...not hard frost...made the carrots soon sweet!

    Then we had a hard frost and I knew I had to dig up the last of the carrots. Yum, they were crunchy and sweet.

    Cut back the Sweet Peas, dumped the flower pots.

    And how has your Harvest Season been?

    I have a good friend with a humongous garden, and I have been blessed all summer with giant walla walla onions; yams; Orange, red, and green peppers of all kinds (both sweet and hot); basil; corn; tomatoes; carrots; potatoes; scallions; garlic; orange, red, and yellow watermelons; cantaloupes; okra; beans; and I don't know what all. Good friends are sure neat!!!

    Hi Mary

    Good to see you!

    The gardening season here was a bust. Cucumbers that usually do well, did very poorly as did the tomatoes. The only thing that grew well for me this year were my herbs and brugmansia.

    I have cleaned up the garden and am ready to plant 3 varieties of hardneck garlic...my first time. I am so excited!! There is nothing like fresh Ontario garlic which is only available for about a month in September. I am hoping to have my own next fall and not rely on the Farmer's Markets who sell each head for $1.50++

    Do unto Others as you would have them do unto you

    That garlic sounds intriguing Alpha! Why do they call it 'hardneck'? Is it a large garlic, and hardier? I am a garlic freak which is why I'm asking. I'm always looking for new varieties.
