|Carrots (but you knew that, did you not!)|

Next (below) is my biggest garlic plant. I picked it too soon, I think, but it is very fragrant and I think potent. I think I was supposed to fold down the stems in order for the bulb to enlarge. I was too anxious though and wanted to see how it grew. I left four more smaller plants in the ground and will probably get them just before the next threat of frost.
Pumpkins! Tiny, tiny pumpkins. This is the biggest one, and I have three about this size. I should have just plucked the plant and all out of the ground, but I will let it go for as long as possible to see how big it will be by Halloween. This was a bad year for pumpkins. Even Lesters Farm had to ship pumpkins in this year as their crop was so bad.
Getting back to the chickens..................................
