This week saw a basket of the oldies but goodies. Are you getting tired of seeing the same basket of greens every week? I'm not getting tired of eating them yet. I have a ton still in the garden. I still can't eat it all myself though. I always send some over to my townhouse mates. Caroline will come over asking if I have anything to go into soup or spaghetti sauce and I'll say the only things coming out of the garden right now in excess are Asian greens. Please, please take them.
This week was a bit of a change since I also sent over a lot of lettuce and parsley. The rock wall garden was getting hit constantly where the lettuce was planted. I would say about once a month it gets hit. So we put up a couple of posts to keep it from happening. And we got the wall repaired. Which means they had to take it apart and I had to pick all my lettuce from that section. One parsley plant got pulled too, but I still have one left.
And it was clean up week. I took down the beans and got a lot of shelling beans in the process. I've never cooked with scarlet runner beans before. I haven't a clue as to what they taste like either. Also on the list, but no photos were some peppers. The frost didn't really take them down. It killed a lot of leaves, but the lower leaves that were more protected survived. I pulled them all and picked what peppers remained. I forgot to put them into my sidebar tally. I'll fix that next week. But they are in the tally below.
So far the garden is still going strong. We have had only one frost hit the garden. Saturday night I saw frost in the morning on some of the roofs, but not much. It didn't get my garden again. The weather has been so nice that we have been speculating that winter just isn't coming this year. Will this be the first year I bring Asian greens to Thanksgiving? Last year was abnormally warm too and I brought red lettuce, but I didn't have the abundance of Asian greens that I have now.
