November Update

Well I have been so lazy lately that I have had nothing to report on. Thank goodness that the weather has been great, and we have had rain, and my garden is taking care of itself. We are still getting produce from the garden, but I have decided to pick it all today since we could get a freeze at anytime now. Here are some pictures of how things stand so far.

This is from the back of the garden. Behind me was supposed to be a mixed greens bed, which I sewed three time, but nothing ever came up. In front of me is Brussels sprouts, broccoli, Swiss chard, and some squash to the left. In the foreground are tomatoes, okra, and peppers.

I like to call this the broccoli jungle. This is the very same broccoli I planted in the spring. I never ripped it out and all I had to do is protect it from worms and water it a little, and now I am still picking off side shoots off of it in the fall. I think it was worth leaving it in all summer. Next to it you can see Swiss chard, and arugula, and an old cabbage.

And the Lord God Planted a Garden

 Man must use the earth as a wise steward under God, as a trustee. This means neither a wasteful exploitation nor a sterile preservation of things as they are. ~ R. J. Rushdoony

Just a thought.
