Its getting close to the end of Summer. The days are getting shorter and cooler. Its also a time when you are rewarded for your work caring for your crops. The wife has gotten,carrots,beans and green onions. We tried some Red Russian Kale. We got some plants from some Amish folks that sell Plants and fruit trees for the garden.Tomatoes are coming on and we’ve been enjoying sweet corn from a local farmer. Its really an exciting timeĀ  of year for the back yard farmer.

Some sweet onion we grew in our raised bed.
