We had an awesome garden this year, most of these canned goods came from it this year, maybe 150 quarts or so, theres still some Rutabaga, kale and a few spuds left after some freezing temps.

I've sowed the winter rye and kale and both are coming along. I'll harvest the kale soon after we get a good frost and that will wrap up another year of gardening.

Pulled the spring stuff. I've got kale, swiss chard, brussel sprouts, cabbage and broccoli still in the ground along with some hot peppers.

I pulled my garden on Monday. We had two killing frosts so there was no saving very much. I did save some bell peppers I was allowing to get bigger. I had pulled a bunch of tomatoes that had started to turn red but there wee still at least 45 to 50 tomatoes on the 6 plants when I pulled them. I would have pulled more to rien earlier but they would have spoiled before we ate them. I had a banner year on maters, my wife made a couple of gallons of home made tomato juice. I also save two cucumbers, they also produce a ton of fruit and I had to give a lot away. This has been one of the best garden years in a while for me.

Awesome guys. Gardening & processing produce, give me as much joy as shooting and butchering, it's all healthy, you know where your food came from!

Only thing left in my garden is fall planted garlic. Got about 120 plantings of soft neck and elephant garlic.

Man it's been in the teens here and I still have spuds, Kale, Turnips & Rutabaga, in the garden I built a second smaller root cellar for the root vegetables they have a small moister problem, but I think i have that problem figured out.

Covered the garlic with straw yesterday. That cold north wind coming off the lake can do a number on crops planted over winter. I do my trimming on the blackberries and raspberries in spring to give them a little cover to winter over.
