Garden Corner By Myrna Weikal -- 355-5829 - In spite of the small raccoon raiding my trees, I have more apricots than I have time to care for. Because we typically get a late spring frost I only see a crop about once every 6 years. I've felt obligated in the past to use them all, but my attitude is changing. The older I get the more practical I get about gardening, and I don't want to deal with any more produce than I'm sure I can use or give away. ("Practical" is the word I choose to use, and I don't care what some might want to call it.) I've been thinking that I might plant just half of my vegetable garden next year and let the rest lie fallow, perhaps under a cover crop like Austrian winter peas. Someone in the Weiser Garden Club suggested another good cover. What was it? Don't remember, but my seed catalog suggests sowing buckwheat, soybeans, oats, or yellow sweet clover for summer cover, or vetch, fava beans, or red clover for winter cover. I've never tried the "green manure" method before, so if any of my readers have some experience to share I'd love to hear about it. My brassicas seem to be doing quite well this year, relatively pest-free. I'm getting some nice heads of broccoli and cauliflower, nearly ready to cut, and the Brussels sprouts are coming along. This was my last-ditch attempt to grow Brussels sprouts, and though it is still a long ways 'til harvest, I'm optimistic. I planted a new kind of broccoli this year which was supposed to have "blue-green, tight domes of densely packed florets," but so far it has pale green heads of loose, open florets. I'm watching it closely, as it looks like it could bolt. I had a hard time getting cabbage seeds going, but I ended up with five heads of ruby ball, and that will be enough. In a serious case of misspent optimism I planted Watermelon seeds in the garden. To date I have a couple of. cucumbers are looking very small melons and a fine and full of blossoms, lot of blossoms. Neighbor so I won't be cuke-less. I Wade Bonner, having want to make dill pickle been told by dad that watermelons wouldn't grow in Midvale, set about proving the older generation wrong by starting them in the greenhouse. He has every chance of success, and I want to be there when he opens a melon and says, "Nyah nyah, Dad: Did everyone have problems with cucumbers this year, or is it just me? I didn't get a single plant started of my favorite variety, Fountain. A few germinated but were eaten, and the next bunch rotted in the ground. The pickling end back i pretty far, but still found them quite satisfying. The "Earlivee" corn relish. Do you have a is living dP to its name, good recipe, without ready to eat now ahead of / sugar? I'd be grateful if any readers would share. My favorite store-bought pickles, which used to be grown and pickled in my old home town, are now a "product of India7 and while I'm all for helping third-world countries, I prefer to get my edibles a little closer to home. I found out that, even though they are prickly and past their prime, artichokes can still be eaten if you cook them long enough. I steamed four for about an hour and had to trim the stem the last of the 2011 year Seneca Horizon seeds that were]planted at the same timei but I'm finding the taste of Earlivee to be disappointing. Seneca Horizon isn't available any longer and I don't care for the sugar-enhanced varieties that are so popular, so I'm going to have to look around for something new. I'm going to make some aprigot jam now, so until next week, happy harvesting. "Like you, I love riving in this area.
