Fall Harvest

@thegardendaddies

Oof, it’s been awhile. We’re in the middle of the academic term and have been traveling most weekends, which has meant less time in the garden. BUT we finally managed to get the garlic in the ground and harvest some healthy kale, radishes, and snap peas. Oh, and the Willamette Valley winter fog is officially back. at Corvallis, Oregon

Persimmon picking day! This year our persimmon tree gave us only about 20 pounds of fruit instead of the harvest of over 100 pounds that we got last year. An animal must have figured out a way to get to them, in spite of the squirrel guard (thin sheets of metal) that Yakir wrapped around the trunk. Therefore each persimmon is more precious. These are Hachiya persimmons, the kind that you eat when they are very soft. Often we use them as a topping for our breakfast oats and mixed with plain yogurt. We're thinking of making persimmon ice cream. By the way, we use persimmon leaves from our tree to make herbal tea. We started to do this after we had persimmon tea at a Korean food festival. How do you like to use persimmons?

I took a quick trip to the nursery today. Has anyone had success growing cauliflower from seed? I don’t think I’ve ever tried growing it from seed. I plan on direct sowing in the front yard garden. Bought a few houseplants too 💕

Last week I made okra, shishito and garlic vinegar refrigerator pickles with the Red Burgundy Okra that has been growing like a WEED in the backyard garden. They are DELICIOUS! Yes, these are slimy but in a good way 😉 There’s got to be a health benefit to that slime 💕

Wow, that’s a lot of seeds! Last spring I let my Perpetual Spinach Chard go to seed. The lopped off seed “branches” have been in a paper bag in my garage waiting for me to strip. I finally got around to stripping the seeds off, looks like I have PLENTY to share!

This week’s #putuporshutup2018 feature goes to @gapey! I've never been a fan of sweet pickles/bread and butter pickles but when it comes to pickled peppers, that's another story. I first made them with sugar rush peach peppers last year and made more this year with the aji jobito x white peach peppers. I use a recipe by @elisebauer for "Jalapeño Bread and Butter Pickles" that I found on @SimplyRecipes website. Playing along with @3pointsacres for #putuporshutup2018. Want to be featured? You must tag me @3pointsacres and hashtag #putuporshutup2018 to be entered. One follower will be chosen every Sunday. Tag a friend below to let them know about this “canning challenge.”

After a week of sun and rain the garden has exploded. 🌿💛🌿💜🌿💙 There’s a hollyhock up the back that I have never grown before. It feels like I planted it 27 years ago. To say I’m excited to see it flower is an understatement. Who else is growing them?

One of my fun surprises this year was my spearmint plant. 🌱 Almost every day I pick a few leaves to infuse my water (with lemon balm, too) and it's such a treat! 😍 But since I've never grown it before I'm wondering...how much cold will it take? (I'm Zone 7b) . . . . . #spearmint #herbgarden #kitchengarden #herbs #mint #infusedwater #homegrownherbs #backyardgardener #containergarden #containergardening #medicinalherbs #herbsasmedicine #beginnersgarden #beginninggardener #arkansasgarden #zone7b #zone7

Labour weekend is when we plant veges... never ceases to amaze me how weeds can grow 20cm in a week yet the good stuff takes forever to grow 🤔 Our "go to" veges are spinach, coriander, beef steak tomatoes and a selection of lettuces. Haven't had much luck with beans, rocket, strawberries or courgettes... at Mairangi Bay, New Zealand

My new favorite tool in the garden! I’ve been wanting laminated copies of The Urban Farm planting calendar for years and always had intentions of having them made. In the middle of creating lesson plans for kids gardening workshops I decided that having them made was a necessity. I sent the copies over to Staples and had them laminated. It’s even double sided! Squeeee! Thank you to The Urban Farm for creating such a great resource!

Brassica bed is all tucked in under the wedding veil☺. Gotta protect this bed from the birds and yellow butterflies. The birds dig up my seeds and seedlings and those pretty little butterflies lay eggs. Those destructive little green caterpillars can wipe out these brassicas in a flash. Not in my garden today butterflies. Sorry. Not sorry.🙃

Our lettuce is liking the cooler temperatures. It feels so strange only growing lettuce and herbs right now. We’re working hard clearing land to lay the groundwork for a new garden for Spring. It’s human nature to question yourself and have regrets. When the regrets creep in I have to remind myself of the bigger picture and how committed we are to our family and restoring this property. It also helps to stay busy and do very little thinking.😊 . . . . . #lettuce #farmher #getoutside #rockroadliving #sustainableliving #growyourown #growyourownfood #organicgardening #organicfood #homegrown #knowwhereyourfoodcomesfrom #gardening #garden #diyfood #horticulture #backyardgardener #gardentotable #gardenofinstagram #growsomethinggreen #greensboro #northcarolina

WINTERIZING ROSES FOR COLDER, DRY CLIMATES. . CLEAN UP: If roses have grown excessively, they may be subject to snow and wind damage. To prevent this, prune tall plants by one-third of their height in November. Otherwise, mid-April pruning is best. Around Thanksgiving, remove all leaves and debris from the ground; this will help prevent the spread of some fungal disease. . DIRT MOUNDS: When the night temperatures drop to 20 degrees Fahrenheit (6.667 Celsius) for several days, mound soil over the rose crown eight to ten inches deep. Bring soil in from other parts of the garden to avoid disturbing the roots of the plant being covered. . MULCH PROTECTION: Otherwise, gardeners can mulch heavily around the base of the rose. Use pine needles or boughs, leaves, rotted manure or shredded newspaper. Mulching roses is important to retain warmth and moisture.  Rose collars are available at garden centers or cages can be built from wire, to hold the mulch around the base of the rose. Mulch should be removed gradually in the spring after the danger of hard frost has passed. . BURLAP: Roses, especially climbers, can benefit from being completely covered with burlap during the winter to prevent desiccation from wind. . SELECTING APPROPRIATE VARIETIES for your climate zone, choosing the proper planting site, following good cultural practices, and minimizing insect and disease problems during the growing season will maximize overwintering success. Shrub roses are usually the hardiest and best-performing roses for colder, drier climates. Included in this group are the English Roses developed by David Austin, Canadian Shrub Roses and Dr. Griffin Buck Roses. There are over 100 varieties and most are repeat flowering and fragrant with the flower form of the Old Garden Roses. . https://denverrosesociety.org/winterizing-roses/. .

Pagi ini kacang kacangan bertambah lagi jenisnya. Biasanya hanya kacang panjang sama kapri, hari ini bertambah dua macam lagi yaitu buncis dan koro. Kirain koronya nda mau berbuah. Soalnya daunnya rimbun sekali dan lama tiada tanda tanda buah sementara kacang panjang dan kapri malah sudah mau selesai berbuah. Pdhl mereka ditanam bersamaan. Mgkn memang kacang koro butuh waktu lebih lama. Tp begitu muncul bunga dan buah...langsung banyak bersamaan. Bakal panen banyak koro dan buncis ini....alhamdulillah Yg lainnya jg tetep buah. Brokoli yg sudah dipotong bunga utamanya masih menghasilkan bunga kecil kecil lagi di samping sampingnya. Yg baru juga ada rainbow chard...masih baby aja cantiiiik Masya Allah. Apalagi kalau dah besar. Ada juga penghuni baru sorrel dan cabe gendot. Rameeee...!!

Our first zinnia flower versus our second zinnia flower. I dont know if the first is a runt or the second is impressive. We have never grown them before. They are pretty awesome though. Learning every day that things I think might not belong in the desert can do well here. at Blythe, California

Want not, waste not. These will turn into pickled goodness. This was my first year growing our own food. Having been raised in Brooklyn, I’ve never had access to outdoor space until now.

THE LIFE CYCLE OF FERNS. . Ferns, unlike other plants, do not flower in order to propagate. Instead, they reproduce sexually from spores.  The life cycle of a fern is different from the life cycle of other plants. While many plants grow a mature adult form straight out of the seed, ferns have an intermediate stage, called a gametophyte, which then grows into a mature fern.  There are two distinct stages in the life cycle of ferns. . The first stage is that of the gametophyte.  Spores are produced on the underside of mature plants. These will germinate and grow into small, heart-shaped plants called gametophytes.  The gametophytes produce both sperm and egg cells, and will fertilize itself, or others. Once the fertilization occurs, the adult fern will begin growing. . The second stage in the life cycle of a fern is the adult stage. The fertilized gametophytes begin to look like a mossy growth.  After some time, young fronds will appear, rising out of the moss. If direct sunlight falls onto the young fronds for an extended period of time, the plant may die easily. This is because the tiny stems are not strong enough to sustain direct light and will dry out. . Once these tiny fronds grow larger, the plant has a better chance of survival. When the veins are matured, moisture from the ground will be transported easily to the outermost leaves and the plant can withstand periods of direct sunlight.  After the plant is large and mature, it will grow spores on the undersides of its leaves and the life cycle of a fern will begin again. . https://www.naturehills.com/blog/post/fern-life-cycle/. .

GROWING KANGAROO PAW FERNS. . KANGAROO PAW FERN - Microsorum diversifolium are native to Australia. The scientific name refers to leaf forms on the plant.  Kangaroos belong to the animal family, Macropus, a reference to their big feet, and the fern that bears their name is characterized by up to 6-inch long (15 cm.) leaves. . GROWING KANGAROO FERNS -  Kangaroo fern grows from rhizomes. The rhizomes can be divided, when mature, to make more ferns. Grow kangaroo foot ferns in indirect light. They are tolerant of partial shade and in their native regions, are often seen growing up trees. Kangaroo ferns may be epiphytic, meaning they will grow in tree crotches, logs and cracks in rocks. . They need consistent humidity and moisture but should not be in boggy soil. As an outdoor plant, kangaroo fern is ideal in U. S. Dept. of Agriculture zones 9 - 11. All other zones should treat this as an indoor specimen, but it can be brought outside in summer and situated in partial shade. The fern prefers acidic, well-draining soil that is consistently damp but not soaked. . KANGAROO FOOT FERN CARE Water kangaroo fern regularly. In winter, the plant is not actively growing and watering should be reduced to half. . Fertilize every 3 weeks with a good soluble plant food. Repot plants that have become overcrowded in early spring in a mixture of half potting soil and half peat moss. . Divide the rhizomes by cutting them apart with a sharp knife. Each new plant needs several healthy fronds and rhizomes. Keep young plants in low light and enough water to keep lightly moist. Resume normal care once new fronds have formed. See companion post today about the ‘Life Cycle of Ferns’. . https://tinyurl.com/Kangaroo-paw-fern. . Source Bonnie Grant. .
