We ate a watermelon today ,it was sweet, I think they should take some time to ripen though. Im waiting for the sweet poetatoes, I wonder how many well get? We started with two I wonder how hearty they are? We also planted a little spinach today and Stacey worked hard on the compost which will be ready for next year . I read that you can lay it down when its half done ,in the fall, and by the time spring comes around its ready. I collected watermelon seeds today, and callindulla seeds too

There isn't that much work now as the season nears an end. We recently planted parsley, lettuce, spinach and today radishes in areas where crops bolted or became unproductive and had to be removed. Today we harvested scallions, tomatoes, collard greens, kale, swiss chard and turnip greens. The wormbim is in its second time producing compost and the two outdoor bins are slowly but surely becoming compost. The End.
