SHOUT OUT CORNER~
A killing frost visited us this last Tuesday morning in the garden… so a lot of the garden is finished. However, Roger (Master Gardner #1) reports there are 2 vegetables that are still growing and 1 that is ready to harvest:
- Brussel sprouts and Carrots.
And they seem to like the autumn atmosphere. Brussel sprouts are particularly intriguing as they seem to be just beginning to make their sprouts. If the weather doesn’t turn harshly cold they should be productive.
- And… we have potatoes, both Russets and Reds; there is no reason to go to the grocery store to buy potatoes.
- Come out and be refreshed with Fall weather, our beautiful scenery… and rewarded by digging up a few shovels full of fresh potatoes in our rich garden topsoil.
The Brussels sprout is a member of the Gemmifera Group of cabbages, grown for its edible buds. The leaf vegetables are typically 1.5–4.0 cm in diameter and resemble miniature cabbages. The Brussels sprout has long been popular in Brussels, Belgium, from which it gained its name.Wikipedia
