Our Baskets are Overflowing!
It has been a great summer for growing veggies in Ontario. Lots of heat with pretty consistent rain. We have had dry spells and have certainly been watering more than last year but all in all the food yields have never been better. It is a full time job keeping up with watering, weeding and harvesting. Not a lot of time left for blogging! Here is the list of what we grew and are growing this year:
Lettuce - 4 varieties
Spinach - 2 varieties
Tomatoes - cherry, plum, regular
Green Peppers - jalepeno, green
Onions - red, cooking (200), green
Potatoes (200 lbs)
Garlic (300 heads)
Whew! No wonder I have no time for blogging! We also have raspberries, black berries, grapes, strawberries, currants, gooseberries, blueberries, and rhubarb. Oh and 8 fruit trees - we had our first peaches this year - 6 of them - very delicious.
