Are we posting our Thanksgiving garden wins? https://www.diningandcooking.com/1062317/are-we-posting-our-thanksgiving-garden-wins/
Today I had a little slice of time to work in the garden before the rain came. I got both butternut pumpkins and baby bear pumpkins mulched with the cut grass I raked up from the fields next to a nearby stream. I got halfway through hilling up the potatoes before the rain arrived. I kept gong 'til I got it done, and got a bit muddy in the process.
Pictured: Baby bear pumpkins looking quite happy.
Fall has officially arrived!
I suppose most people have something that signals Fall to them - the first leaves that turn, a chill in the air, that sort of thing.
For me it's carrots & kale lol.
We don't really have winter where I live. Even Fall is a bit dicey. Monday had a high of 82F....in November.
So loads of baby carrots & kale are my mental signal that yup, Fall is officially here. Thermometer be damned. 😂

Redid some veggie garden edge and now I've got these tempting looking holes in the bessa bricks. Considering filling with dirt and planting something in there, but would dry out so quickly. Looking for low, zero maintenance stuff to just look a little neater and maybe insulate from the sun.
Considering some of this pretty little local clumping grass 'cyperus gracillis' that's growing around the yard already. It just kind of flops over, and think I could brush it aside occasionally. Thoughts? https://www.brisbanecitylife.com.au/cyperus-gracilis/

Vegetable garden three months in. Snow peas will be completely finished by the end of the week. Still getting a handful of lettuce each day and have planted out another nine lettuce plants where the broccoli was. Tomatoes are fruiting and potatoes are starting to flower. Herbs are pretty good except for the flat leafed parsley which has finished #vegetablegardening #gardening
In other gardening news, I got the last of my seedlings into the ground today. Four courgettes and one more Cherokee purple tomato.
Next to start on sewing green beans and sunflowers. I might direct sew the beans this year?
And then the perennial beds are overdue for some love - weed/feed/mulch.
Check these monster carrots I grew! https://www.diningandcooking.com/1035266/check-these-monster-carrots-i-grew/
Apparently there is a pea straw shortage this year, which is what I usually buy to use as mulch in Summer. Another great reason to look into growing my own.
I need to investigate other mulch options that might be more plentiful and inexpensive. Any type of straw or hay can be used.
Also we live not far from a Whittaker's chocolate factory and sometimes garden centres sell bags of their discarded cocoa husks.
The last outside harvested vegetables of the season, my last tomatoes and some mostly green peppers and two tiny zucchini sneaked in between. Only a handful of aubergines are left but i brought the plants inside, same for my orange tree. Next week we will get the first ❄️ the next garden season will start in February/March thanks for following my interest here #gardening #vegetablegardening
This video is giving me some ideas. I am considering cover cropping all of my veggie beds over Winter next year.
The idea is: start cover crops in Fall. When they are done, cover with cardboard. Organic material dies and breaks down. Cardboard prevents weeds. Beds in great shape come Spring and need less compost.
Video is called "I Stopped Buying Compost for Two Years" by No-Till Growers.

Final harvest of the year (banana for scale) https://www.diningandcooking.com/1015162/final-harvest-of-the-year-banana-for-scale/
These baby bear pumpkin seedlings are ready for planting out. I'm working in preparing the veggie bed for them today, though I might not get them in the ground until tomorrow.
This is my first time growing baby bears. I wanted to try a hull-less variety. Hull-less is where the seeds don't have a hard outer shell so the seeds are easy to process for eating.

This is not an ideal raised bed, but it is fast and easy and it will do the job.
The bricks will get pushed out of place as they are just loose. It's rather low - I'd prefer at least 20cm which is what my wood-bordered raised beds are. To compensate I've mounded up the earth toward the middle, where I will plant the pumpkins. Pumpkins don't like their feet to get too wet.
Longer term I plan on replacing the bricks with wood like my other raised beds.
5) Add some organic material I have lying around (swept some dry leaves off a garden path).
6) Layer potting soil and compost.
7) Soil amendments (organic fertiliser pellets and lime).
8) Water well.
9) Throw chicken wire over the top because cats love to use loose soil as a litter box.
My raised bed process so far:
1) mow grass extra short.
2) measure out the borders and mark corners with sticks.
3) cardboard layer. 2 layers of flattened boxes, so 4 layers of cardboard total.
4) scavenge old bricks lying around the back garden and place around the edges to form a border.
(I do not recommend the bricks with holes, weeds will love them. But I ran out of the no-hole ones.)
I got overenthusiastic with the pumpkin seedlings this year. Which would have been fine but also the timing was off with the bed some of them were meant to go into. So it's time to take over more of the front lawn for veggie growing. I'm building a cheap-and-fast raised bed today: Cardboard, old bricks for a border, and some compost/etc on top. Stay tuned for pictures. I'm pausing operations now until the day cools off.

Tomato seedlings ready for potting up.
This weekend is Labour Weekend in New Zealand which is traditionally when it's considered safe to plant out tomatoes because the threat of frost has passed. (In the Wellington area).
But these babies need potting up and a few more weeks to grow up before I plant them out.
I'm always surprised by how big pumpkin seedlings are.
Baby Bears: 5 out of 6 germinated.
Butternuts: 3 out of 6 germinated.
This is why it's a good idea to sew more seeds than you need. Some may fail, especially when it's from your own seed collecting or the seed packet is getting old.
The Baby Bears are from King's Seeds. The Butternuts are from my own pumpkins grown last season.
@enog Pickled veggie + Shoyu + Rice = onigiri!
I never made onigiri before, but I had leftover salmon too, so it seemed like a good time to learn. A huge risk since my wife wasn't home! 😄 But it came out excellent. (My son approved.)
The Rice Lager from Onibi Beer Company was solid, although a little hoppy for a lager, I thought. It certainly paired well with the onigiri.

It might be really helpful if we started and contributed to a specific hashtag (something like) #ClimateChangeGardening to chronicle how garden veg/fruit are not coping with the changing seasons and offer substitutions. A lot of people are having major issues with asparagus bc of sudden hot temps in spring but there are others. We can find solutions together. ❤️
