Though most of my gardening efforts went into completing the pathways, pruning and top dressing all of the gardens, our nearly ignored and un-planted vegetable garden did yield a few gems.
I just couldn't bear seeing my parents vegetable garden go unplanted, my late mother always planted the usual tomatoes, peppers and lettuce. I asked my father if he wouldn't mind if I used it this year and he gladly said yes, as long as I planted a tomato for him.
|This is the first year I was able to harvest the giant garlic for roasting instead of replanting|
|My very favorite red onions 'Red Zepplin'|
|A good harvest of Hood River garlic|
|So here you go Dad, this tomato is for you|
|I planted a row and and a half of russet and German butterball potatoes|
|One row of sweetcorn and acorn squash|
|These cucumbers were such an odd surprise, called White Stallion. I saved seeds from last year and they are loaded with little cukes.|
|Here is a good comparison|
|A very hardy row of turnips|
