I don't know what your asparagus problem is, Spud. Wish I could share some of my bounty.
"Worms" really devastated my brocolli, collards, and kale the past 2 weeks. I didn't spray them, and suddenly, they were virtually devoured. I hand picked hornworms off the tomatoes, but the greens' worms were too small and numerous to detect and pick.
I've begun digging sweet potatoes. So far, they look good.
Wish I could grow asparagus. One of the few green veggies I love the taste of. I've got a large portion of my garden devoted to them, but they never get big enough to harvest.
Some of the ones I planted 2 years ago are looking promising. Maybe next season, or next.
I always plant onion sets--quite reliable, no thinning needed. Here we plant garlic toward the ends of October. I usually mulch mine with my asparagus ferns.
My onions and garlic were a bust this year (as was chard, beets, and squash). So, I'm envious. This is the first year I froze corn ON the cob. It microwaves nicely. However, it takes up too much freezer space.
Oh! I so much wanted to pick-up one of those ears and crunch into it!
Beautiful harvest, Daniel!
It's true! There is real satisfaction in bypassing the vegetable aisle--for a few months, anyway. We keep our harvest of onions, beets, garlic, carrots, Brussels sprouts, leeks, squash, and cabbages in a cold (unheated) room till January, when that space threatens to get too cold, then we move them into the basement, which serves pretty well as a root cellar till about March.
Don, it looks like you never have to buy onions, carrots, and probably many other things from the store.
I love the look of that raspberry wine, Randall. I made some black currant vodka earlier this summer, also some cherry vodka, and have been pleased with the results.
Yesterday, I pulled my yellow onions. They did better this year that usual--good size.
Impressive carrot harvest Don.
Same for your squash Daniel.
