Garden Update July 16th

Tonight I went for a walk through my garden, like I do every evening. I am always amazed at how much produce I can get from this little piece of garden. Tonight I harvested nearly 5 kilos rhubarb, some of which I cooked, some went in the freezer and some I gave to my neighbor. I had received a bucket full of August apples from her on Monday which I turned into apple sauce. This week also saw me harvesting the first potatoes and to cleaning out the area between the strawberries and bush beans. Putting down compost, I am now prepared to plant more strawberry seedlings in that place for next year. Slowly but surely the freezer and the shelves are being filled, to keep me going through the winter.

What is going on in your garden?
