Garden hits its stride and harvesting the bounty!

Hey Everyone, we’ve been busy here on the urban homestead with planting our succession plants like cabbage and kale getting ready for that next phase in the gardens…fall. It’s hard to think about that right now with the temperatures in the mid-90s, but without the planning now we’d run low on fresh greens outdoors…before we transition back to having 100% of the greens grown on the urban homestead from the indoor grow tents.

Most of the efforts lately have been focused on the Youtube videos and getting those post-processed (meaning I’m fumbling my way through editing with kdenlive and audacity both free software on Ubuntu Linux). It’s fun to learn these new things about normalizing and equalization of the audio tracks, but time consuming. I’m not complaining though…if we want more viewers on our channel we need to put in the effort to make the best videos possible. 🙂

Weekly weekend harvest of our homestead bounty
Quick update, are these 2 pictures of our garden harvest for the weekend. We haven’t included pickin any of the cucumbers since Paula will be canning a bunch of those this week and doing the harvest too early will allow them to get “rubbery” if you know what I mean. It’s best to have them fresh as possible so we get that freshest crunch once they’re canned. Anyway, I’m rambling again…here’s the picture:

Well, it’s that time again that Paula and I have to get ready for the upcoming work week, so I’ll sign off here. I hope everyone is having a great summer and your gardens are as productive as ours have been. See y’all next week. 🙂
