New State - New Gardens! #4: Garden Progress - July 24, 2013

07-25-2013 02:06 PM by Retsof | 3 comments »

I’m very happy with my gardens so far this year. The fridge is stocked up with wonderful fresh organic veggies from both of my gardens. So far, I’ve harvested squash, peas, wax beans, green beans, purple pod beans, french string beans, fava beans, radishes, lettuce, tomatoes, dill, cucumbers, rutabagas, broccoli, and beets. Meals have been fantastic since the veggies have started producing. We have had ratatouille, grilled zucchini and summer squash, breaded and fried squash...

Spring Vegetables #2: Peas

03-25-2013 06:41 AM by chscholz | 6 comments »

Never had luck with peas. In April always caught powdery mildew and died before they ever set fruit. This year we planted the peas in Jan., this seems to be working. Looking forward to harvesting our own peas.

Growing My Way to Freedom #34: Scarlet Runner and Jacob's Cattle Beans

11-22-2011 09:09 PM by Radicalfarmergal | 9 comments »

One of my goals for 2011 was to grow beans that I could dry and keep through the winter. Previously we had only grown pole beans and eaten them fresh in the summer. I also wanted to be able to save the seeds for future years so I chose two heirloom varieties: I chose Scarlet Runner Beans for their beautiful red flowers and the fact that they could be eaten both green during the summer (if harvested when young and tender) and dried over the winter months. These beans are climbers and I ...

This Year's Harvest #5: The last Dong Gua

12-17-2010 07:27 PM by chscholz | 6 comments »

This fall has been good to us. Average first day of frost around here is 11/15 and even today we have not seen temperatures much below 0 C (32 F in the US). Nevertheless, we decided to clean up the yard all the dong gua inside. It is also time to till the ground and the winter vegetable out of the pots. Here are the final photographs of the DongGua. Unfortunately we don’t have a root cellar (in fact almost all hoses out here don’t have a basement, but houses are cheap ou...

Here are a few pictures of bai cai (literally white cabage, aka napa cabbage) Kohlrabi and some other mystery vegetable (I am serious, no clue what this is) The pictures are a 1.5 weeks old, simply did not find the time to post them earlier.We’ll probably dig up a few sweet potatoes this coming weekend and plant these vegetables.

This Year's Harvest #2: Hong cai tai

10-24-2010 11:00 AM by chscholz | 6 comments »

No idea what this is in English, red mustard leaves maybe. Grown from seed, we are thinning them and this gave a nice meal. I still feel strange planting in fall. It’s supposed be cold by now, right?

Growing My Way to Freedom #20: Sweet Peppers

09-04-2010 07:22 AM by Radicalfarmergal | 42 comments »

This has been the year of the sweet peppers for us. Usually we get lots of small, green peppers and one, maybe two, red peppers off our half dozen plants in a summer. This year, our plants were loaded with good-sized, sweet, flavorful red peppers. They must have really loved this unusually hot, sunny summer! According to the weather station, we have had more than forty days when the temperatures reached ninety degrees or higher this year. In my experience, peppers demand warm sunny weath...

winter vegetable gardening in upstate new york #1: Winter veggies

08-10-2009 02:38 PM by Daniel | 4 comments »

I am getting ready to start tilling the side yard in order to prepare for planting a winter harvest of vegetables. My biggest problem I am running into right now though is what vegetables to plant with the area that I am in. I am in UPstate New York, about half an hour or so from the Canadian border, and am not sure which vegetables would be good to plant this late (or later) in the year.

2008 Garden Diary - XO #3: Harvesting a few veggies

09-14-2008 05:43 PM by XploreOrganics | 4 comments »

The garden was not as successful as I would have liked this year. My spinach bolted due to an early heat wave, my corn was stunted for some reason but I may still get a few small cobs. We are working on a big garden for next year and I will post the pics soon. Carrots have been quite nice, with a few strange ones, but I always like the unique carrots, I have a few nice turnips, some papaya pear squash and nice lettuce.
