SHOOT, Shoot, SHOOT!!!!! I forgot to take pictures of the garbage bags full of the beans and tomatoes I pulled. The zipper peas are about to come out of the garden this next weekend as well. The black ants have found them and for some reason, they suck the juices from the stem of the plant and then the pod turns a yucky yellow like an old bruise and dies. Oh well. They were fun to try. I'll try to make a point of taking a picture of that carnage when I rip it out this weekend. The peas in the other corner yard are about to go as well. There isn't any sun there in the fall and winter and now we've gotten down to 2.5 hours of sun. I'll pull those plants while I'm at it.
Sooooo!!! Here's the conundrum.....when do I pull those sweet potatoes? I'm not deluded that I'll get a harvest like EG. I've tried to dig down and haven't found anything worth while, but I'm getting antsy. The low temps for the next week are still in the 40's and the highs in the low 70's. Should I call it a day and do it this weekend or wait another week? Oh the decisions, the decisions!
