Default Re: This years gardening effort

Looks like the garden & canning is about finished this year. Best I can cipher, we have canned 207 quarts & pints of various things from the "weed patch." Pretty disappointing but better than I expected. The corn produced 32 quart freezer bags cut off the cob in addition to the canned stuff. .......I sowed a little strip of turnips on August 12th. Close to the apple & peach trees they came up good but only about one fourth the size of plants away from those two trees. Nothing grows good around trees. That's ok. The rest will produce at least 10 times as much as we need. I canned 14 quarts of greens already & after the turnips come on I'll can another 14 quarts of greens & turnips mixed. The deer & neighbors can have the rest,

Speaking of deer, it appears something has happened to granny's replacement & her baby girl. Haven't seen them for over a week. The boy came home alone for a few days but now I haven't seen him for three days. Mama appeared to be bummed up a bit in her right back leg all summer. I noted she didn't put weight on it when she stood still. ........Paul H
