After The Snow Storm

I have learn something new about vegetables. Broccoli, pak choy, carrots, rapunzel can survive snows. Yup, I just found out after the storm we had about a few weeks ago. I went to my garden after a week it happened and see for yourself.

Rabe Broccoli
This is what is left of my pak choy. I have so much seeds, some are big and fertile and the other are tiny and the looks of it will never grow from them.

Pak ChoyI don't have a pictures of the carrots but they sure are growing big. My garden is filled with so much weeds now. I pulled one of my sweet potatoes but turn out to be yams. They biggest one is as big as my thumb. I'm not really sure if they will still grow because the leaves are dead from the snow get got.

Hubby wanted to mix the soil but they are still too wet. Maybe we will do it when the ground is frozen, at least it's dry and hard...:)).


Gourd (Repost)

Can you see four gourds here. Yes, and that is only from one vine. First year with this gourd was very nice, then it went downhill because of the weather. Not enough warm months from where I am.Gourd/UpoThis was taken three years ago when my gourd had plenty of fruits. My father was so surprise when he saw that we got so much.

Gourd/UpoThis one was the old fashion ones that came from back home. I still prefer the mini ones because with the big ones I had to eat it all week long. That is just too much for one single person.



An Update

My peaches fell off the tree because of the strong wind. DH only found two of them and now I can't find the seed/pits that I tried drying outside. I think the wind blow it somewhere else.

I even tried locating where I put it to dry but no luck. Hopefully I can get some pits next year. They are small than the ones I can see at the local market. However, I guess that's there regular considering I do not put anything but all natural soil.
