It's safe to say the sweet potatoes need more heat than you can give them. They do quite well for me, but regular potatoes do not. And it is amazing what organic material can do to lighten up soil!
Yes, you are right on both counts, Dave. A case of always hankering after what I can't have with those sweet potatoes I guess ….
A few ripened this week too... Once they start to change colour I bring them in, but with a frost last night that will be the last of them I expect. Luckily I have plenty of potatoes as a staple!!!
Oh the figs are lovely! I struggled to grow them here. And it's a shame about the winter squashes. We always count on them here as a winter staple. The peppers are lovely though!
Good harvest again.
Pleased with most things Trill.. just those squashes that are not up to the mark!!
Been much better this week Dave, and at least some of the garlic is in. I swore off growing red onions, but..... having another go, so perhaps you may also change your mind. It is allowed!!
I hope you get some dry weather so you can plant! We had that problem here this spring with wet conditions. I have sworn off growing all onions here, and we shall see how long that lasts!
