I had no intentions of doing as much today (Saturday) as I ended up doing!..I went to take a look at the Rutabaga turnips to see if I had any thing worth harvesting..Well, it seems as if I did :o)...So I picked those that were the largest and decided to leave some that were trying to grow onto the big ones..(here I go experimenting again :o) who knows how well they will do if left alone..Cecil found a turnip that was left from last year and it went into the pot too :o)
There weren't many green tops, but with some homemade cornbread , I'd make that dinner.
Then I decided to take a look at the "P" Garden to see how the Collards were fairing! they should have been harvested a week or two ago, but I just wasn't able to get tothem.They were begging to be harvested so I
decided to get in gear and get them up before i lost them..
I think they did pretty good growing over here witht he Pears, Peachs and other flower plants we have on this side..so i thing the "P" garden is a good spot for them water and sun wise. This gives us more land to grow food ..it's just "Almost an Acre" and we are using it wisely.. Don't think I forgot about chickens either. I'm going to see if I can find a farmer who would be willing to part with some of his "Free Range" ones. That's better than wishing in one hand and *#$***in the other. I'm glad that we do something with what we have, especially everytime I open a canning jar or go to the freezer :o)..We are Blessed...in more ways than one..you too!
