I cooked about half the one-hill potato harvest to have with our pork chop dinner and they tasted outstanding. No bitterness, simply a nice white potato that brought us pleasure to eat within an hour out of our garden. We are going to steam the rest to use in a potato salad. They aren't Russett, so it will be interesting to see how they perform in that recipe.

Hopefully they taste just as good.

Comment was by Joan Denoo on July 5, 2021 at 10:21pm

We harvested one hill of potatoes. They ranged in size from 1 to 3 oz, there was a couple of dozen and not one blemish on any! That is a first for me. In Spokane, my potatoes always had scab, blight, and Verticillium Wilt.  Not on these!

The old saying for corn was "Knee high by the fourth of July". Nowadays, it's head high. My sweet corn is tasseling already, so in preparation of raccoons decimating my patch, I put up an electric fence. It's not easy keeping up the maintenance. The hot wire can't touch any corn or weed leaf because of grounding. But come harvest time, it's all worth it!

How are your gardens growing?

My favorite tomato is a hybrid, Sun Gold. It is time to find a favorite heirloom. I prefer flavor over fashion. 

Comment was by Mrs.B on June 3, 2021 at 1:55pm

Broccoli, cauliflower, peppers are in now. Hopefully the nights don't ruin them.

Surprisingly, my strawberries have done quite well this year. They're as large as I've ever seen them. I just have to compete and contend with robins and chipmunks to see who get to them first. I've ordered repellant to hopefully rid my yard and garden of the little devils (chipmunks). I bet I have 50 of them on my one little acre.

The garden, overall, is doing nicely--everything up and growing taller.

It's still cool for the time of year, but our roof garden got a good soak from a week of rain. Most plants growing very hard.

Comment was by Mrs.B on May 6, 2021 at 1:41pm

Rick has a few things started for the greenhouse, but it's not usually safe here until the end of May, but so far it's not been warm enough at night for anything.

Comment was by Randall Smith on May 6, 2021 at 8:00am

Despite the abnormally chilly temps we've been having, the garden is looking good. Asparagus is popping up, slowly, but surely. Lettuce, spinach, and peas are coming along nicely. No corn yet--the ground needs to be warmer. I'm still not sure if I'll have any fruit (after a hard freeze a couple of weeks ago). Gardening requires patience, for sure.
