October 2016

The potatoes are about to flower, and we will soon be welcoming them back into our diet.  We always take a few when the plants first go into flower.
4 Amish Paste Tomatoes, with Sweet Basil as companion plants and a Lettuce catch crop.  The small Ecobed in the top left of the picture is the same.
These broad beans have a few mature beans on them, and we will start to harvest them today.
We don't have a garden gnome thank goodness, but we do have a garden fairy.  She seems to be pretty comfortable in this bed of Campanulas.
This mini cabbage is a perfect size for the two of us.  I grow brassicas and alliums in this fruiting cane bed in winter.  It helps keep the microbes active.
