Big Russets and a serious head of broccoli. I feel like a real farmer. I really enjoy running down to the garden instead of the supermarket! We ate these immediately. Pan fried potatoes, sliced thin and steamed broccoli. Yum!

  • That's great. I'm glad to hear that Mom. You just have my spring planted broccoli too. I love the way it has produced all season. I think I will plant twice as much (for me anyway) next year.

  • Your potatoes look much bigger than ours. Must be the better soil–or perhaps the warmer weather.

  • Nothing better then broccoli right out of the garden or for that matter potatoes right out of the garden… or anything right out of the garden 🙂

  • Hello, I know this is off topic of the broccoli and the taters but we are having a lot of trouble with researching which fertilizer is the best to lay down this fall for next spring. We need to know whether to buy manure and till it in or just throw leaves over the garden and till in? Or both? Any advice? Thank you in advance to anyone who may know!

  • Sort of on the subject of over-wintering the garden–My friend Jane reported that Essex Aggie has advised that the cold temperatures this winter will kill the early tomato blight spores Therefore leave the stalks out on the ground's surface. Make sure the potatoes are all up too, as they may store the blight underground where it does not freeze. This sounds like good news to me if it's true. I'd appreciate feed-back.

  • I haven't heard it advised anywhere else to leave the tomato debris in the garden all winter. Has anyone else heard this?

    I've already bagged and disposed of my home garden tomato plants and am currently planning to dig my community plot plants 3 feet under.
