Next I headed out to the Orchard Garden to chop some pig weed from around my few turnip plants.While back there, I decided to harvest my crop of field corn before the rains begin and mold sets in. It didn't make as much as I anticipated, but I guess that is the difference between heirloom and hybrid corn. I haven't shucked it yet.

Then I got so tired of seeing all the blasted gray squash bugs on the failed Seminole Indian Pumpkin patch, I decided to mow it all down. Of course, I had failed to mark my sweet potato row and those vines have gone crazy and I mowed over about 10 feet of the row, topping a potato or two. So, then we had to harvest a few hills of Beauregard sweet potatoes. They seem very long and slender this year.
I think I will try to get a soil test done this winter.
So for dinner today we will be having:
Sweet potatoes (not cured)
Barely sauteed fresh green beans
Mashed Yukon Gold potatoes
Pork Chops for DH and I will have liver and onions.
I do enjoy hearing from you all!
Susan, I can imagine what fun you all had. Wow, just think cherry pie and now I get to add gin.....no that would be raisins to my list of health foods.
