Just had the best potato harvest ever, off a volunteer potato (how DO you completely remove potatoes from a bed?) I can't take credit for that. But the green beans are making me feel like a gardener again!

Yay SweetSilver! Our potatoes have not started dying back yet, but we did pull up the onions today. Mmm!
Hey zone 5ish people, have you got all your Fall harvest crops in? Is there anything I can still sneak in aside from lettuce and cabbages?
My back is finally starting to feel well enough to start catching up, I am so happy! Especially since I am hosting a perennial exchange for my Freecycle group coming up her in September Oh I wish I could sneak out of it at this point! I proposed it back in Spring, when everything was dandy. Oh well, I will do what I can. I got one bed all weed free, which was an accomplishment! My 3 y/o was helping me out up until she discovered a toad to carry off and play with, and she found the height of some of those weeds just hilarious. "They're just like the corn!" she says. Yep. Pretty tall.
