Checking Off the Homesteader's To-do List
✔Pulled all the beets. That bigger one was the only somewhat "big" one out there. I brought in about a dozen of the smaller. None to freeze this fall.
✔Started digging up potatoes. They are very small and few. Less in pounds than what we planted sadly. NO sweet potatoes so far. I'm still digging, so...
✔Emptied last water barrel, flipped over for winter storage
✔Pulled gladiolus bulbs
Picked the last of the jalapenos. If we had had a full grow season, I would have been able to stock up cowboy candy for 3 years. The plants are getting so tall and it's the end of our season.
