2021 GARDENS

Recommended Posts

in the past few days i pulled out my green beans and 5 of my 20 tomato plants. for what they where producing it didnt pay to waste water on them. ?

 

i noticed the trees in my yard looking a little stressed so decided to give them a drink. took the hose and set it at a slow trickle by the truck and let it set for a 12 hour shift.

Been very impressed with my rugged boy tomatoes. Great size (softball) and no marks or splitting. They will be my tomato of choice from now on. Also blight resistant, my celebrities look like dump and very little blight on the RB.

I have about a dozen sedum around the yard. Tons of bees. With Those and bee balm I feel like I did my part with the bee population. 
 

tomatoes, second round of peas and habanero are the only thing left. Collected my 4 o’clock seeds and need to clip 5-6 zinnias to plant next spring. Yards down to 3 inches, wind has helped when dropping the mower down a quarter inch. 
 

Duffman care to share what you use pepper sauce for? I googled it but seeing if you do something different with it. 
Thanks

Thanks for sharing Duff, I've given around 200 serranos away at work with lots more on the vine yet among other peppers so I think that's what I'll do with the rest. Last year's dehydrating didn't pan out..

I've got a tiny garden, but will try and produce more bounty next year.

Would like to get enough peppers to fill a dozen bottles. 

It was a nice ratio with hot and sweet peppers. Hot peppers this year included serrano, thai, salsa, cayenne, habanero. And what I call MN jalapenos, they seem to be very mild for us northern folk.

But along with the sweet peppers, they made up most of the bulk of this batch.

Now I need to come up with a name and label for next year.
