I Failed Blog - I Failed Garden at the River Plot - But I did get some produce!
It's been a crazy year for sure. I fell and hurt my shoulder and my knees and have been doing physical therapy.
Been trying to do some of the gardening across the river but sure have failed. As previous post said, it was mostly weeds. I did manage to pick a few ears of corn. I got just two meals worth of corn and one meal of roastin' ears. Not much for 4 rows 25 feet long. Heck, they were growing fairly good and then they just quit.
Many rainy and windy days which knocked down most of the tomato stakes. Yes, it was that windy! I did get enough tomatoes from here at the house and out there for 6-7 pints of salsa.
I planted the Pink Banana squash but never got one. Bugs are on the plants now so really don't expect to see one. I did get one Acorn Squash. There is another growing but I bet those squash bugs get it.
At home, for those who follow this blog, I did get about 3 to 4 pounds of Yukon Gold potatoes out of the half whiskey barrel. I have picked many Banana Peppers and made 3 pints of pickles with them. I have many more on the plants so going to make more pickles.
Yesterday, after running over to the river plots and picking tomatoes, I made 2 quarts of juice and 1 pint. I was thrilled with that much!
I have also made paprika pepper powder. I have two paprika pepper plants and they grow really good. The Big Jim Jalapeno Pepper has produced and I have cut a couple of them and cooked with them. I guess it's better then nothing!
