Beautiful harvest, Daniel!

Planted garlic today. First crop planted to harvest in 2017. That assumes the world won't end sooner than that. :-)

I think I bought these starts in 2001 and have been growing them ever since. The variety is Inchelium Red. It's an heirloom variety from the Colville Indian Reservation in Inchelium, Washington.

Today's Harvest.

The sweet corn variety is "Bodaceous." I give it a 10 out of 10. Earlier I had "Mirai" - too sweet and not such good corn flavor. This year "Bilicious" and "Trinity" were also good in my garden. "Trinity is a little sweeter and not as rich corn flavor, but is shorter season so good to plant for earlier harvest.

Randy, that raspberry wine sounds like a lot of fun!  Great home science project!

Don I grew storage onions this year, but not as many.  We harvested them in July here, and Im 2/3 through them now.  This was our first year growing them.  Do you use seeds, plants, or sets?  I used sets but thinking about starting seeds in 2017.

We are 2/3 through our russett and yukon gold potates too.  Planning to start twice as many next year.

If I have the energy, today I want to pull out the corn stalks and plant garlic.  It's time to do that now.

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.

I made my first "Fall batch" of red raspberry wine yesterday, and will make more today. I have a balloon attached to show the fermentation process occuring. Of course, the raspberries are mine. I'll be moving a portion of my patch after the season ends.

Well, my garden is full of weeds that tower over my head telling me that the soil is in excellent shape and I am the biggest slug of all. Just no energy. Thankfully, the structure of my plantings hold their own in this jungle and provides excellent growing space for some ambitious younger person.
