Roots Up

12 Oct

We picked all available veggies before we went away..when we got back it was all pretty well gone to rot. We got to pulling the veggies out. Later in the week we will a add a couple inches of compost and lightly till it under. We also got a mini-harvest of mini green peppers.

We do indeed want a large garden..we talk about positions and timelines then an ongoing project reasserts itself into the forefront. Soon. Next year? Ah well, the good thing about the 6 boxes is that everything is pulled in 10 minutes.

    egb – thanks for stopping by our blog today! i have scanned a few of your posts and like what you are doing here – i promise to go back and read all of your previous posts but wow – you are like an old-time blogger!!! but that is what i like to do when someone leaves a comment on our blog – i check out their blog and then if i like it, i re-read every single post. but give me some time eh? you only have 28 years of blog posts that i need to catch up on – bahahahah!

    anyway – i was wondering – you could take those peppers and deydrate them – out in the sun if you don’t have a dehydrator, or even in the oven. once dehydrated – you could crush them and make your own pepper spice.

    just an idea that i wanted to share.

    i will catch up on all of the previous posts – some nights i don’t sleep! but i hope to see you back at our blog often as you seem to be good people!

    thanks again!

      those peppers are green sort of developed and the others look like hot peppers..hehe..they didn’t grow green peppers next year..I may just grow mud and save myself some disappointment.

      yeah, I know what you mean about reading all posts..most of the blogs I read I have read them all..I have about 80 posts from the past in draft form..I just need to associate the images with them..and with the wordpress interface I will pick away at it over the winter as I run out of realtime posts. We blog for us so we want everything from the past ( I took the pictures with the intent of blogging but our connection at home was too unreliable) is a work in progress! hehe thanks for stopping by!

    It all looks good. love the pictures. I guess I’m going to have to make our garden next year bigger. That way Kathi can go crazy with things to plant.

    The peppers in the pictures are indeed jalepenos. We grew green peppers(sweet) , but the lack of sunshine this growing season left us with mini peppers.
    Thanks for the dehydrating information, I’ll give it a whirl!
