Mmm. I love collards, but I’ve never grown them. I remember coming home from my first semester of college and getting to request the meal: chili, cornbread, and collard greens.I've got my winter garden started, traditionally LaborDay around here. I planted my Collards a couple weeks before LaborDay (to see if I can get a harvest a little earlier). Seems like I used to have fresh greens with our Thanksgiving dinner several seasons ago but not lately.
We have been dumped on with the rains here. And like mostly, it's 'hurricane rains' with inches at a time. Last couple, were like 4" in 40 minutes type stuff, then none for a time. It's hard to farm around here.
We just ate our first garden cantaloupe of the season. Hales Best. Oh my goodness was it ever good! Full sized and extra sweet.
So far my plant has delivered about 148 tomato's plus there are about 52 more ones on the same plant--these are green different sizes...This plant has been productive I think and is this amount normal? I went to wiki and got this address for tomato's.. How are your veg..doing?
We are having record low temps for October and this is on a weekly basis as well as daily. Our garden is shutting down, with only the cold tolerant plants remaining. Lemon trees have been moved into the greenhouse. Time to plant garlic soon.
Trying something new this winter. I just pinched 3 suckers off a tomato plant, dipped them in hormone, and stuck them in my aloe Vera pot. Maybe I'll be able to start all my plants from suckers this spring.
San Marzano. The prospect of being able to start in March with plantlets is intriguing. If the experiment works, future years could have suckers planned to give ripe tomatoes a month or so after it gets warm enough to plant them.I’ve never tried keeping a tomato going all winter, but I’ve definitely enjoyed creating new plants from suckers. In the absence of foliar diseases, I think that sounds like a great way to get a jump start on your season. What variety is the tomato plant?
