Garden Diary and Photo Update!

Hi, First thank you for your message and wishes.

Time of year when Harvest is in full swing. Apples Pears, Peaches, Raspberries, Strawberries, plus all the annual garden fruits; Tomato, Melon, Cucumber and Squash. Eating, Canning, Juicing and Sharing a wonderful time of year.

Soon the harvest from the container grown plants will start and continue through Winter. So be prepared to check and clean to make sure no uninvited guests travel with them into their winter quarters. Nature has been doing a good job all summer of balancing prey and predator, now you and the cooler weather will slant the balance towards the ‘prey’ [pest]. So start now to look over your plants and remove any issues that are hiding there. The best of us will not see every single issue with one quick ‘look’, so do this once week for at least the first 4 weeks after moving your source of fresh winter fruits inside. Then every two weeks after you have just ‘turned’ the plants to balance light, look for any sticky residue on leaves, then search above this area. A little bit of effort yes, but picking clean fresh fruit when the snow is outside makes it all worthwhile.

Blossoms Are Starting & The Greenhouse is Bearing Fruit.

A Garden Update from a Customer!

We received this great update from Kristin, and she was kind enough to let us share it with you. Doesn’t her garden look great?

“Hey there!

It’s Kristin from Niagara Falls(Incase you don’t remember me, I think I was one of your first customers in spring lol and bought a bunch of great trees) but! You guys were so kind to give me a yacon and I just wanted to send some pictures and update you guys that it grew very well(at least I think so? having no experience lol) 😃 Anyways, I harvested a 5 gallon pail full, ate a bunch and am over wintering some tubers with my fig trees to plant for next year!! So thanks again!! Some pictures below…😊

#1 is a swallowtail butterfly caterpillar that was munching on the Brown’s select satsuma I got from you! Such a gross and neat lil guy

#2 is a nice sunset over the citrus “grove” in warmer times

Here is the guava I got from you, pic was from mid summer, but right now its holding a couple 👍🏼

The banana aka the beast!! Overwintering in the house by a huge window

And finally the yacon!! So the pic is crappy, it was the night of our first frost so I was in a rush to dig it up. But I’d say it got to 6′ tall(picture is deceiving) over the season and with no fertilizing! lol it was a lazy year….The picture below is of the tubers that will be stored for next year’s planting!!

Thanks for looking at the pics and thanks for the great plants!! I’ll be in touch very soon about a citrus order 😃

Sincerely Kristin”
