End of Garden 2015

DSCF2860Summer is coming to an end, which means a couple of things: school is going to start and we will be neglecting the garden.

Today we gathered some of our last carrots and kale and one watermelon. Our largest carrot was about 11 inches, which is definitely bigger than most carrots we would find at the store. In addition, we’ve noticed that our carrots are softer than the ones at the store, almost buttery.

Tomorrow we’ll harvest our last summer apples and put away apple pie filling.

Will some food go to waste? Yes, unfortunately, some will, but we’re all pretty burned out. We still have our winter squash, new cucumbers, watermelon, pumpkin, peas, kale, and cabbage, but we aren’t eager beavers anymore. The plants will just grow without being tended to very much, and then we’ll just harvest if we see anything worth harvesting.

All in all we had a great season and while this school year is looking like it will be busy, we are all looking forward to the change.
