I was able to uncover the hoophouse this week. It never got in the low 30s at night and the daytime highs were in the 50s and 60s. It was a beautiful week. Next week is going to get colder so I had to cover everything back up yesterday.
Not wanting to get out more covers and unable to keep the chickens away, I went ahead and pulled all of my baby carrots that were previously uncovered. Hopefully, I will have better luck growing carrots next year. I also harvested a bit of spinach.We ate this salad with baked beans. Also from the garden, we ate baked sweet potatoes, steamed green beans, and pecans.This may not look like a lot but this is my 3yo’s plate. Everyone else ate more 🙂 The vast majority of the pecans are eaten on the porch. Very few make it to a meal. And this is not all they eat — they always have seconds and fruit.
Also, note to self, grow MORE spaghetti squash! I was able to freeze enough bags for two more dinners but I would like to grow enough to last me through the winter.
Some vegetables that we are NOT running out of: tomatoes, green beans, sweet potatoes, and green peppers. Pretty much everything else we need to grow more of but we are good to go (so far) with these vegetables 🙂
