today's haul

I have my work cut out for me over the next couple of days. Yes, this is  a large wheel-barrel with a large tote on top of it all. I pulled the last  few of the winter squash this morning along with the last of the water melon. There is still one melon almost ready for picking  but I lost several due to splitting this week so decided to pull all the plants but the one. The thai  melon is also splitting, so I pulled those plants too and fed the split melons to the chickens. The green bag is full of okra  and I found some carrots that some how did not get pulled this spring.  In the tote is tobacco leaves on top and the bottom has golden delicious winter squash and  some acorn squash. There is also the tomatoes , a spaghetti squash and a delicata squash  down in the heap. I have more to say but  it will have to wait, I gotta go  get busy.


  1. Wow, that's a lot of stuff... You'll be very busy...

  2. Nice harvest dilli. I had some great looking plants from the thai melon seed from our seed swap. They didn't make it though after the ducks got in the garden & went after the blossoms.

  3. lol Michelle... dang critters... we used to free range the chickens here but they tore too much up so we started confining them.. they would fly over the fences to get in the gardens even
