Garden Harvest

20090726_6359

Dirty Darren came by one Sunday afternoon to help with the garden. All the hard work was finally paying off, the garden was full, and it was time to begin the harvest. In late July, it’s time to pull and dry the onions, garlic, and shallots, as well as dig the potatoes. It was a great help to have an extra hand to harvest and pack kilo after kilo of these, which will hopefully last through the winter. There were also tomatoes, plenty of GIANT courgettes, beets, cucumbers, peppers, beans, and salad. I can’t help but to say again how incredible I find it that this much food can come from such a small piece of dirt, with truly minimal effort.

    Minimal effort! Why is is so hard in Louisiana?????? I remember the bountiful gardens of Oregon – here not so much.

      Don’t know! Here, the climate is perfect- warm and sunny with good amounts of rain mixed in… rather similar to Oregon perhaps!
