Carrots to the left of me, parsnips to the right, here I am stuck in the middle with you. 

My apologies to the Stealers Wheels band for messing with their lyrics.

BTW I have dropped 30+ pounds in weight since mid summer of 2018. Some of that was planned by cutting out junk food and sugar. The rest has occurred since my PCa diagnosis and going on a whole food plant based diet. My BMI is now down in the normal range.

Well it looks like tonight is going to our first frost and hard one as we dip down to -2C (28F).  At least the parsnips will taste sweeter after the frost.

We are cooling off tomorrow to less than 90*F.  I am not sure whether our warm weather is better than your cold weather.  I think we need something in the middle.

Nice haul, TD!  I don’t think we are getting a frost tonight, but not far off!  

You look good, eat well, I know you do.  All that good veggie power is terrific!

Thanks SR.

After we got home tonight Mrs TD and I went out with a flashlight and brought in most of the semi-ripe and green tomatoes, as well as a few remaining peppers, before the hard frost hits. Got two bags of pickings.

I still have some big maters out there, waiting on the big F, still not happening, so will wait.

Love your strawberry popcorn!

I tried popping one by putting it in a paper bag and microwaving it.  No popcorn but almost burned the house down .😀

Third radiation treatment done today. Another one tomorrow (Friday) then I get a break for the weekend. Forecast is for a cool but sunny weekend so I need to get some more things done in the garden. Still lots if parsnips and a few carrots to bring in as well as beets, kale, chard, and raspberries. Sadly I will not be collecting and mulching leaves for composting this Fall

Found enough energy this afternoon to clean up four squares, add compost, plant garlic cloves, cover with straw and add a hardware cloth protective cover.

Will try to plant six more squares of garlic in this bed before the end of October.

Tried again to pop some of our Strawberry Popcorn.  More success than last time.  The kernels pop to a bright white, sweet tasting, popcorn.

Were the kernels drier or more mature than the first one?
