Cars 108 Garden Is Ready For Harvest

Time to do some pickin'!

When we started the seeds back in early May we didn’t know what to expect. When we put them in the ground on Memorial Day weekend, we hoped for the best. Now that Labor Day weekend is upon us, it’s time to enjoy the fruits (and vegetables) of our efforts. Most everything we planted has produced, although the deer that live near the radio station got to the cayenne peppers and the green beans before we did.

Our tomatoes did well, we will have a couple of pumpkins for Jack O’ Lanterns this Halloween, and it looks as though the potatoes were a success. I’m pretty sure there’s some onions growing amongst the weeds and pumpkin vines, and the sunflowers are over 8 feet tall and will provide enough seeds to keep the birds happy for a while. We don’t know yet how the sweet potatoes turned out, but are hoping for a good surprise when we dig them up in the near future.

Nothing beats fresh food from your own backyard garden. If you planted one this year, I hope you are enjoying it as much as we are. My wife and I have another garden at our home which also did well this season. Time get the canning gear ready so we can enjoy what we grew throughout the year.
