Late season morning glories in the veggie garden
This is another reason why I try to pull morning glories BEFORE they go to flower. They are so darn pretty that Once they Do flower, I have a hard time dispatching them.
I know what it will do for next year, but that is six months away and they are here when the rest of the garden is starting to die out. I've got them in this purple, white, blue, and multiple variations. It just isn't fair.
I believe we have found enough good recipes that the rest of our yard-long beans are going in the freezer, not shared around Tullahoma and Shelbyville. In fact, I probably should not have given away the last batch. For more on yardlongs, go to http://www.gardengleanings.com/
Speaking of yard longs, our banana squash has just about taken up the whole yard, or it would have if I had allowed it. As it is, one single plant has extended out to all four corners of our garden and is now producing 8-10 more monster squash.
We have yet to clean and cook the one I kept after the garden meeting, plus the Cushaw. I planned on doing it while the weather was cool, but it looks like I will have to wait another few weeks for my next opportunity.
It is time to clean up some of the garden rows and prepare them for garlic and the rest will be heavily mulched for winter. I have a bag of buckwheat that I planned to seed last month as a cover crop, but.... "the best laid plans".... Hopefully they will last for next year.
I have some Chinese cabbage growing but I am going to seed some more that I plan to protect in my tub gardens. Also need to see if there is any discounted packs of lettuce, spinach and swiss chard seeds.
