Garden notes August

Tomatozilla! It's a prudens purple, and luscious. It weighs 18.6 ounces, and I think it's our biggest ever. The vines are full of lots of big ones, though, so we may top it this season.

And C. dug up this interesting mutant spud with a waistline. It's a Yukon gold, from the dry, neglected orchard area where she found some neglected (and large) cucumbers and patty pan squash. It weighs 17.2 ounces (in case you were wondering).

Next year, we need to:
• widen the paths
• plant more Amish paste tomatoes – those suckers are HUGE.
• improve our deer-proofing
• bring the silo from the Ancestral Home to serve as a garden shed
• come up with a watering system for at least some of the beds
