FIELD PEAS. Field peas are coming in. I have planted brown crowders (my favorite), black crowders, and lady peas. I picked ten gallons earlier this week and spent the afternoon shelling them. I have six rows of peas, and each row is 100’ long.
ONIONS. I harvested about 300 onions (both red and yellow). Some of them are as large as a softball. No kidding. They are called Candy Onions and easy to grow in the South. They are mild in flavor (like Vidalia onions) and suited for making onion rings (as well as seasoning). I won’t plant so many next year. I over-planted this year to compensate for loss and ensure that I would get a few in the end – but I got 100% of what I planted. Highly recommended.
OTHER VEGGIES. Had lots of squash come in, but it’s about over. I’m thinking of planting summer squash (zucchini).
My cucumber plants did not do as well this year as they did last year, but we did get to pick a lot of cucumbers and slicing cukes. Renae and her mother also canned several quart jars of pickles.
I have thousands of peppers. Yes, thousands. Nuff said.
Japanese eggplant. Beautiful fruit, but not sure I like it.
Elephant Garlic – you wouldn’t believe the size of this stuff. The cloves are enormous.
Sharing God's blessing by sharing what I learn and what I grow.
