This is the total for this year.
I’ll be planting in the ground from now on.
I have had blueberries and black raspberries on my granola for 2 mornings.
The Delight variety of blueberries is ripening first and has large fruit. It is the second bush from the end.
Of all the beets planted, only one made it through the Polar Vortices this winter. We are having it for dinner tonight. It was a chiogga.
Just because it’s pretty doesn’t mean it tasted any less like a beet. Chioggas don’t have a lighter taste just because they are striped instead of being burgundy. And the only way I eat them is roasted. I think pickled beets are foul.
The German Red hardneck garlic is seriously behind the softneck varieties. So, it didn’t get harvested today. And I don’t expect to bother growing it again because one clove never made a plant at all. So, I’m not very enthusiastic about it.
But, the Red Toch
And the California Early
I couldn’t wait.
And, as a point of reference. That bowl is about 14″ in diameter. The longest potato is more than 10″ long.
This is what one of the Arkansas Black apple trees looks like, now. If I put up a photo of the other one, you couldn’t be sure it wasn’t the same tree so I’m not going to.
These are the more prolific blueberries. Looks we’re finally getting fruit after 4 years. I just found teh list I had made of the blueberry varieties when I put them in in 2009. Coming up the fence from the shed, they are Bright Eyes (a gift from Ann), Delight, Misty, Climax, Misty, Bright Blue and Misty.
(Edit: Chuck reminded me that Bright Blue was wiped out by the mulch guy and replaced with another Misty. Misty has very small berries. I should have recognized it.)
