DH and I took out our garlic, around 1300 plants I guess, it took 3 days, not the best harvest, still nice. Today I took out the cilantro, cut the plants off, so the seeds will fall to the bottom of the bag. Enough for now. All this will be nice to have for cooking. One can never have enough garlic.

I've got half my garlic dug and it also is not a great year. I will change the location this fall, from a raised bed to a low perimeter bed. I have more room in the perimeter beds and I now know which variety stores well for me. I have planted six varieties and I am ready to whittle that down. I am also learning what grows well in in-ground beds and raised beds. All in all, this is a a bumper year so far.

Thank you, Cheryl! The chicken chile verde I made yesterday with some of the peppers was delicious!

Surprisingly, my Shitake mushroom log produced quite a bit of mushrooms for me to pick today. Its been a very dry and hot summer. I just happened to be on that side of the yard doing something else, when I noticed the shrooms coming out of the logs. Usually its spring or fall when its wetter and cooler.

Thanks, it was a pleasant surprise.
Its one of those things where I spent a whole morning preparing the log ( like 6 months ago and the other 2 years ago) and then just let nature do its thing. I was actually away this weekend, and I had my son taking pics of the logs each day so I could monitor them to see if they needed to be harvested before I got home.

I froze beans today. I am not in Ontario, so I didn't have 25 lb of beans to freeze. I am going to help a friend clear out her garden today (Thursday). She had surgery and is supposed to be on bed rest. Squash, cukes, carrots, potatoes, beets, cantaloupe, watermelon, corn, and tomatoes. Acres of garden to clear--four of us.
