    Traveled thru Jersey in the late 60's, never had a desire to live there. Of course "the garden state" may have had a draw if id seen anyything other than Ft Dix and the interstate going thru to Boston.

    Thanks Rose, and Umbra for stoping by.

    Back in the 60's we would watch miles of trucks filled with tomatoes going to Campbell Soup in Camden.

    7AC6B2BA-AAA4-4FB9-8E91-EDD3776D403A.jpeg We had a very light frost last night, nothing the outside Kale couldnt handle. We've got some kale, green beans, cukes, lettus, celery and 5 kinds of mint rocking along in the greenhouse still. Im about ready for a break!
    As things finish up im reamending the pot soil and storing it all in 32 gallon brute cans. Each can got a one gallon milk / mollassas latte and soon as the teas done they'll Each get a gallon of it as well.

    Ive also got a tote of kelp that ill dry a bit of then work the rest into the compost pile.

    Thanks for following along this season.
