Winter crop

So far we have had a mild Maryland winter. Had we anticipated this we would have planted more but the Short-N-Sweet carrots have done really well.

Also pictured dill, arugula and catnip.

New squash! No mildew

If you look in my earlier post you'll find my struggles with squash and powdery mildew.

My experiment is working good.
Planted two in a container and put them out in the yard in direct sunlight. They get almost no shade. So far they seem to enjoy it.
Then hurricane Irene and Lee came through and blocked out the sun for ten plus days. According to the news, the northeast has gotten 45 trillion gallons of rain. My point is, we will see how well my squash will fair.

Hurricane Irene and Lee tomatoes

It has rained here for almost 10 days straight due to the 2 passing hurricanes. This much water isn't good for the garden and many things are rotting in the garden. This is all that I was willing to bring in. Most of the rest was rotted and or mush.

Today's Haul

It's a small gathering today. Hurricane Irene has come and gone. The garden was mostly spared.

Today's Haul

Because of the impending hurricane, Hurricane Irene, we went ahead and picked everything that was close to rip. 

We have here heirloom beefsteaks, Jenny, Juliette, fireballs, totem, chocolate cherry tomatoes. 
Peaches, sweet basil, thai basil, cucumber, and jalapeƱos.
