I apologize for missing garden journal last weekend! I am still working to get my garden ready for the winter, and we are still harvesting a little here and a little there. My fall garden is not as fabulous as I had hoped it would be, but I won’t complain. Caterpillars need to eat too, right? The chickens have also discovered the garden, and like to spend the late afternoon there. I am remembering why we gave our last flock away, although this time around I am thinking about fencing. I want both: chickens and a garden.
The bright low growing green in the middle left is crimson clover. The thick bushy green in the middle right is sweet potato. We will wait until frost to dig them I think. I read that sweet potatoes need to be cured at 80 degrees or so and very high humidity for 10 days. How are we to achieve that? Should we lay them out on the ground and cover with clear plastic out in the sun? I guess I need to start googling “how to cure sweet potatoes.”
How is your garden growing?
