Friday Photo: Last Taste of Fresh Corn

October 6th, 2017

Corn from Dr. Bashioum's garden

It’s about time to start putting the garden to bed this year. While it has been a challenging growing season with a cool spring and lots of rain, I always enjoy sharing my freshly picked harvests with family and friends. Pumpkins, squash and cassoulet beans are about the only remaining things to harvest later this fall. I just picked the last of the corn you see in the photo today, which we BBQ’d on the grill and it was delicious! With colder temps expected soon, I still need to bring all the tender fruit trees and herbs inside to the garage in the next few weeks. I guess it is time to start planing what new stuff I’d like to try next year. Happy Fall

Rhubarb Sprouts: Spring is Coming

April 7th, 2017

Dr. Bashioum's garden rhubarb

Taking a little survey of my garden, now that the weather has started to warm up. Found these early rhubarb sprouts starting to come up as I was completing the pruning and final clean-up. I’s always a joy to find indicators that winter has finally past, but as all Minnesotans know, we gardeners hold our breath until May! Happy weekend and here’s to hoping a rhubarb pie is in my near future.

Just saw a female turkey cruising past the garden, foraging for bugs– a welcomed helper.
