Getting things done.

My kudzu season is on it's way out. But I was able to get pick 6 half pints worth of flowers last night. And I realized some of ya'll dont really know what kudzu looks like so here ya go.

(Mind you, the flowers are about all gone.)

Now I didnt get a good landscape photo. But imagine this covering a whole field.

So more kudzu jelly will be made tonight. That gives me a total of a pathetic 12 half pints.Which is about half of what I was hoping for. But maybe I can head out again in the next week and really strip the vines clean.

Next, I finally purchased a tiller that actually works. Crazy the tiller troubles I've been having this summer. 
The camera battery needs a charging so I have no pictures of it. But It tilled up the cold weather garden like a champ.

Speaking of cold weather gardens. It's finally in. I was about ready to give up on it. But I finally planted everything. This is what we got.... atomic red and cosmic purple carrots, a gourmet salad mix, watermelon and easter egg radishes, chiogga and detroit red beets,blue curled kale, and a row of potatoes. I'm way way way behind so no onions, cabbage or brussel sprouts.
It's a proper punishment for being about a month behind on everything....


  1. This whole year is going so fast--I feel like I'm finally catching up in the garden and am ready to enjoy summer----and it's GONE. Rats!
    Really, I swear I just planted............and now I'm decorating for fall????

  2. Nice to meet ya! What part of the country are you in? I'm jealous of your garden, I got out a few turnips and the last of my green onion sets.(sigh)

  3. Thanks for commenting on my blog. Keep blogging -- I enjoyed peeking through your posts! Kudzu jelly??? I'll have to try that some day!
