The kitchen garden has really started to produce over the past few weeks. We´ve been swimming in sugar snaps, salads, radishes, cucumbers and carrots. The beets are almost ready too. The zucchini are a little disappointing, but I have a feeling we´ll get there eventually. I´ll harvest the first batch of green beans and kohlrabi this weekend.
The tomatoes are doing very well. I´ve grown two Ukrainian varieties this year since they are supposed to fare better in our climate that can be rough. So far, things are looking promising.
The cabbage bed is a beauty. As every year, there definitely are some damages from the cabbage fly, but I think there´ll be plenty for the two of us. We are going to eat lots of sauerkraut this winter!
Hard to photograph but this year´s chard is a beauty too. I tried a colorful variety this year (red and yellow) and it looks so pretty. Tastes good as well of course. After last year´s glut I thought I could never eat chard again but clearly I was wrong.
Our giant potatoe patch with some runner beans in the background. Last year all of our potatoes drowned and it is a joy to see them thrive this year. Now we only need to figure out storage. Our basement is too wet, so I think I´ll give our barn a try this year. Any recommendations?
