Remember how small they were before!
Apples......Mmmmm we can't wait for the apples!
Charly helped me harvest our beets!
.....then cut the greens off without cutting the beet. They will keep better this way until I can freeze and/or pickle them. I keep them in bags in the fridge until I'm ready they will keep for a while that way.
The greens I also bag and put in the fridge after they are washed and dried they won't keep as long though so we will steam some to eat and use some in salads then freeze the rest for smoothies!
I am finding the best hint I can give you about gardening is to just do it and keep on trying. The soil improves every year by tilling in the garden after harvest in the fall and adding organic material in the spring. So much of gardening is just trial and error. Practice, practice, practice!! Just like anything the more you do it the better you will get at it. Hardest thing with gardening is that when you mess up you usually have to wait until the next year to try it again. I have decided to try keeping a garden journal to help me remember things from year to year, what worked and what didn't! I went looking and found lots of them free to download online I think this one is my favorite Simple, not too many pages, yet has enough to be thorough! Next year I'm for sure going to remember to start pepper seeds a good 2 weeks before everything else. Who knew they took so long to germinate! ;) Happy gardening hope you are all expecting lots of harvest!
