Fall Harvest before the first frost

Fall Harvest before the first frost

We harvested lots of chillies from the green house as well as broccolli from outside. We had our first frost on October 13.  All outside plants are destroyed except Broccolli, Salad mix and Ceylon Onions.
3 Sister Acorn Squash and Waltham Broccoli harvested

3 Sister Acorn Squash and Waltham Broccoli harvested

Acorn squash were planted as part of our 3 sisters experiment.  They produced average sized squash.  They will be used with Casava to make a yellow curry. Waltham Broccoli was planted in late June and there were no activities until the nights started getting colder. We are getting some beautiful Broccoli.  We continue to harvest as they keep on producing new shoots.

We planted these onions in May.  We should’ve harvested them in July but due to the dry spell it was postponed. Then Weed took over the bed.  But we managed to harvest them in Middle of August and had a good size Ceylon onions. From a 2 feet by 100 feet bed, we were able to harvest around 120 lbs of Onions.   We planted around 30 lbs of them in the clay soil.
