I don't often see folks growing Kohlrabit - it is an acquired taste but one I grew up with. Sauted with shallots or scallions, mushrooms and some vegetable stock .. dinner is served :!: Well part of it anyways. Goes real good with Pork Hock and Spaetzle mmmmmmmmmm tasty

Picked young ( about 3 inches around or so, its a great mild radish tasting snack....Sliced with a little salt....Minus the heartburn ( and as you know Rudi, I got only part of my Pancreas)...Dave

We've been hard at it here in Indiana.
All from our farm:
60+ # strawberries
5 gal bucket of garlic
100+ dozen ears of sweet corn
92# of carrots
70 canned quarts of green beans (and several folks who came and picked and took home)
A couple hundred onions
300+# of red and white potatoes
20+ quarts of peas
15# rhubarb
Rasberries and black berries (unknown amount, they get ate before weighing)
Peppers and tomatoes coming on strong now. She's made quite a few jars of ketchup, tomato sauce, juice, and soon salsa.
We've been busy!

My tomatoes are slow coming, this year. Rest of the garden is doing well. Got rid of the deer, by plowing up the red clover cover crop, on one side of the garden. They grazed there, then snacked on the garden, for dessert!. Planted Sorghum Sudan grass, in place of the clover. Will produce lots of organic matter, limited nitrogen, but limited Deer interest,which is worth more to me, than the nitrogen. Ed

Yeh, I was talking to a lady the other day at a local farm stand....She asked if I had any ripe tomatoes....I said a few...She said normally local guys would supply her with tomatoes, but everyone is saying their slow to ripen this year...

Oh yeah, I been going to order a few fall plantings (bush cherries)...I read in a review that someone used " 1/2" Bar of Irish Spring soap hung on a stick to ward off Deer from eating their cherries and limbs....Last for a couple of years and worked great...
