How Does Your Garden Grow?

Well, I know I have a lot of videos on my blog right now, but don’t forget to check out my older posts. I’ve posted a short story I’m working on, and talked about rice, garlic, coffee, and asparagus. I like my garden and food. That’s where I’m going today, to the garden.

September has flown by here in New England. As the days get shorter and shorter and the air changes to crisp and cool, the final vestiges of green growing things struggle to survive in the hillside, too shady, weed infested area I’ve staked out for growing vegetables.

This year the garden was expanded, the fencing went up late (I wasn’t about to put all my plants out so the deer and bunnies could have a party at my expense), and many of the beautiful plants I’d started indoors got root bound, bug infested (organic means Bugs!!), sun deprived, water deprived and attention deprived. But despite all that I have a bumper crop of tomatoes. I’ll be canning some as sauce, and trying a Green Tomato Chutney. When I have time again I’ll let you all know how I did.

Until Then.
