We live in zone 6a and I have been gardening and cooking for years. This blog is an opportunity for me to share with you my success and those failures that come about on occasion. Plus, I want to hear from all the gardeners and bakers and cooks out there and learn from you. Feel free to share your ideas.

Green Envy

I purchased a new compost from Ohio Mulch that is called Green Envy. I had never heard of this before and discovered that Ohio Mulch works with various grocery stores such as Krogers and restaurants to compost their fruit and vegetable waste. So far I have purchased 16 bags to add to my raised beds this fall. They were having a special: buy one bag and get one free. We would never be able to produce this amount of compost. In comparison to their Green Envy bags, we produce about 3 bags worth. .  

Last of The Tomatoes

I am starting to cleanup the garden and I pulled up all of the tomato plants, and harvested what was left on their vines.

I still have one raised bed with kale, carrots and basil. The basil has done very well this year and I have frozen plenty of pesto for the winter. The cabbage crop did not do so well.. As I stated before, I had an overabundance in the cabbage department last year and this year zero. Eggplant is just finishing up and has been a winner.

Most gardeners complain of too many cucumbers and zucchini. I just do not have very good luck with them and may not plant them next year. Projects moving forward: cleaning up the garden so it is ready for spring planting!
