Smith is still working his garden and the fall bounty has been quite amazing. In July he decided to try small second batches of green beans, lettuce, beets, radishes and potatoes. The green beans did fairly well, as we had about three meals worth. The radishes have been amazing (huge!), the beets small but tasty.
The potatoes were a major success! This potato is 2.4 lbs! Several more are just slightly smaller. The variety was Cadillac Red and you can bet Smith will plant them again.
The last of the broccoli has been harvested, although there could be a few smaller heads later this fall. Eating fresh broccoli has been an very tasty treat.
We didn't plant sunflowers, but several other gardeners did and they planted the very tall variety packed with seeds. I'll bet they'd be easy to roast.
