    I set these out to dry over night because the ground was went when I harvested. All said and done those 9 pounds of see potatoes produced 120+ pounds of fresh potatoes for my family and I also ended up with more than 25 pounds of onions in my harvest. I’ve already started pulling cucumber, peas, kale, and green beans The harvest has been very good to us so far this year!

    I have some tomato plants that are 5 foot tall and I can’t wait for the green tomatoes to turn red πŸ™‚

    So you are actually going to use all those and use all those onions for your family?

    My garden is a jungle of what I would describe as thick underbrush. I do however have some ripe figs on the fig tree.

    That is the plan! I’m going to store them so they can be used for making salsa! We have already started cooking with some of them!

    So for most parts of the country are already done for their growing season. I have a few cherry tomatoes making appearances here and there, but for the most part, my garden is D O N E… done!

    But, if I could figure out how to do a cost effective method of something like this, that would rock πŸ™‚ Maybe something that is 4 foot x 5 foot. Put two tomato plans in it and get tomatoes year round? That would be cool.

    Plan B is pretty funny.

    I hope everyone was as successful as possible with their garden. I know I learned a lot. Next year my garden is going to be very different. I have a lot of ideas so make it better, especially with weed control.

    That being said, I have finally mowed over my garden and there is no more. I’ve placed some portable chicken coops in the garden and I’m moving them daily to help enrich the soil for next year. I’m also going to be dumping on a few hundred pounds of rabbit manure soon as well as leaves that are falling. My compost bins are pretty much full so I’ll be dumping compost on them as well. Get that soil ready for next year!
