It's a Jungle
Angus's new tagline is: "Silent death stalks the range."
I made a mixed currant/salmonberry jelly from these luscious fruits.
The tomatoes in the greenhouse are rampant.
These are a heritage variety "Kutenai" that I started from seed I had saved 10 years ago!
These ones are "Principe Borghese", an Italian variety good for sun drying.
Can the elephants be far away?
The first garlic I pulled, just to see how it was doing. Huge, huh?
The carrots aren't bad either. I planted a mix of varieties - the white ones seem to be the biggest.
Scarlet runner beans - my favourite.
Yup, I'd call this year's garden a success. But I can't get complacent - apparently there are raccoons yet to reckon with.
