The Golden Rod is Yellow
The Corn is Turning Brown
The Trees in the Apple Orchard
With Fruit are Bending Down
-Helen Jackson Hunt
Can you believe its September? Where did the summer go? The Farm is having a great season.
The Tomatoes and Peppers are slow but the rest is excellent. The pickling cucumbers are selling well. With all the rain its hard to keep up.
I was at The Noble Lion on Sunday. Had a friend, Karen, to join me. She works at Kowalski’s in Excelsior. Marc gave us a Heirloom Plate of Tomatoes. It was so pretty and excellent flavor. I don’t know how to fix that (never too old to learn). I got to meet his mother also, nice. His Noble Lion restaurant is doing just great. People love the food. Its in Victoria, Minnesota.
Now To Fall Gardening
Have you dug your onions or potatoes? They will start to re-grow with all the rain. Dig and put in your garage and cover them with a gunny sack or something, this helps the storage.
How to know when to harvest winter squash. Push your finger nail into the shell. If it dents its not ready to harvest. If you have something chewing on them in the garden, set a pan of water out. Something is thirsty.
Now about potatoes in the grocery store. It can be 2016 harvest. I have 2017 crop. They taste a lot better. Sweet potatoes also are 2016. New ones come in October.
