More from Sharon’s garden

Broccoli, cooling off from the recent crazy heat, cut back a bit, fertilized and amended with mushroom manure, should produce nicely all fall into winter. Potatoes have been growing in the foreground, and all stems/leaves have died down, indicating potatoes are ready to dig. However, I am leaving them in the ground as an experiment, planting a whole lot of previously-seeded starts of Asian greens called ‘tah tsai’ – little spoon-shaped, glossy green rosettes on top of the potato area. I hope to harvest this crop for stir fries & dig the potatoes at a later date. Many are the ‘fingerling’ type which have been growing in this garden in various places for many years. They’re waxy, and yummy in salads!
