Harvest Time and Fall Crops

Dried cutting celery ready for storing in jars. The fall and winter greens and broccoli are loving the cooler temps we've been having. I'll likely have broccoli heads the size of basketballs. This is the Arcadia variety I grew in the spring that got huge. The fall crops are usually better.

Another new crop for us -- Chinese Cabbage.

Oh the sweet potatoes -- beautiful! This was my first attempt at sweet tates and they are now part of my annual crops. Very easy to grow from slips - disease free, maintenance free, and easy to harvest and store. Just dig up on a sunny day, let dry for a couple hours, then set in warm, dark location for about a week. They store in a 50-65 degree basement.
