What has been going on in your (indoor) garden, on your balcony, in your homestead or on your farm this month? Let us take a peek and maybe you'll win one of the prizes.
It's mid-fall here in the Northern Hemisphere. It kinda feels like not a lot is going on in my garden, but the opposite is true. I still have a squash that's ripening, the chayotes are still growing, and in about a week or two, there will be a lot of root vegetables that will need to be harvested.
Sweet potatoes, Yacon, Crosne ( AKA Japanese Artichoke), Jerusalem Artichoke, Paleleaf Woodland Sunflower, Chinese Yam,...
I'm really curious to see what this year's harvest will look like.
This is going to be my very first harvest of Chinese Yam. I planted it last year, without actually knowing anything about it. I have never tasted it, heck, I have never even seen one in real life, so it's definitely an interesting experiment. The plant itself (cinnamon vine) is so beautiful that I might plant one next year anyway, even if I don't like the roots.
We finished the last bit of last year's Yacon harvest a couple of weeks ago, and I'm really looking forward to tasting these delicious roots again. (Since I have never seen them being sold here, I have to rely on my own harvest if I want to eat them.)
Anyway... It's that time of the month again...
