They are cowpeas.  Similar to blackeye peas.  I harvest mine immature (green, not dried) and cook them just like you would blackeye peas.  But they are smaller and better tasting.  I actually like Pinkeye Purple Hull cowpeas better.  They love hot weather so, after potatoes, shell peas, broccoli and garlic are finished I have plenty of room for the cowpeas.

As much as I liked the tulle, I think the agribon is working even better. After months of discarding bug-chewed leaves, I've finally starting to get some nice Swiss Chard and Russian Kale. We had this on bread with cheese for lunch (it's served kind of like a half-wrap sandwich) :

Tonight as part of our lamb hot pot evening meal we had from our garden :-  two onions , a carrot ,  some of the last baby beet roots , a small kohlrabi & the last of our red climbing beans .  The lamb itself was civen a thick layer of mashed white potato , sweet potato  fine chopped fried onion ( from yesterday ) and a few spoons  of left over grated  Lymeswold cheese .

 I must confess it was far better than it sounds ( I'm still drooling about the taste of it three hours later ) .

Harvested the last of the first picking of asparagus. We get lots of different types of lettuce, kohlrabi, lots of different types of kale, dandelions, and sweet basil, Thai basil and parsley. 

Life is good.

Onions, carrots, potatoes, garlic, celery and Swiss chard in a wonderful wild rice and mushroom soup!  It was delicious!  

Only one onion left this year ( had a bad harvest) so that is a bummer.  

Here is the recipe;

Kale smoothie -- now with extra entomophagic protein!


That's pretty much how my kale came out before covering with agribon. I thought brassica family members were supposed to be too bitter for insects. No, insects love 'em.

Here's the current harvest. But I don't think anyone here will drink kale smoothies. They'll probably go into stir fry:

And here's the covered agribon gardens:

They haven't had a real rain yet -- hopefully they'll hold up to it.

So, do you really have llamas ? That would be pretty cool.

One great thing about growing Kale, Swiss Chard, and Spinach this time of the year is that the cabbage moths are gone for the year and there will be no more cabbage worms on the leaves.  During the summer months, I keep them sprayed with Bt or Spinosad to keep the cabbage worms under control, but I don't have to worry about that at this time of the year. Picked some beautiful Dinosaur Kale today. There is spinach and chard ready to pick, but there is no room in the fridge for it right now.

Well, we have the worms and also mildew on the dinosaur kale all year, though at reduced levels from now until spring. Is there particular brands of Bt or Spinosad you recommend? The dinosaur kale in the front yard is now on it's 3rd year. It's probably time to start over since it's flowered. But mostly it's the bugs that are a problem. I've had one's that grew to about 8 feet before they fell over.

Mark, I use Bonide Thuricide Btk (Bacillus thuringiensis v. kurstaki) when I can get it - the local stores seemed to stay out of stock this summer for some reason - or Bonide Captain Jack's Deadbug (Spinosad) when I can't get Bt.  Spraying the Btk every 7 days completely controls the cabbage worms for me. But, the Spinosad I have to spray when I spot eggs or worm activity.  The Bonide products are available here at the local Lowe's store.

My kale will keep producing until a heavy freeze kills them, usually about the 3rd week of November. The Swiss Chard will take a light freeze, but it is stunted after that.

It's a recent laboratory designed & developed cheese  gven a traditional sounding name .. it's a light yellow and a bit plasticy  with not a lot of flavour the sort of stuff you might grate ove cooked cauli before putting them under the grill to brown up a little bit 

Lymeswold cheese - Wikipedia

[url=https://duckduckgo.com/?q=lymes wold cheese+site:en.wikipedia.org]What are you eating from your garden today? - Page 11 Wikipedia[/url]https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lymeswold_cheese
Lymeswold cheese (1982-1992) was an English cheese variety. Many English cheeses are named after regions but Lymeswold was not; the name was the result of a public competition to name it, the winning name may have been derived from a quintessential English place name Wymeswold.

Tonight for evening meal we had last years canned  home grown carrots in a tortellini & tomato based sauce slop made with canned toms our own onions onions shop purchased ...red pepper , mushrooms & garlic . on the side of the plate home grown broccoli & this years fresh carrot as butter fried batons . 
 More than a bit heavy on the carbs though so I doubt I'll have lost any weight by the morning.  

I've lost 15 pounds  in a month so far , just by leaving out fried food , sugar and high carb processed stuff like bread, pastry , biscuits etc.  The best thing is I've not missed them or felt I've gone on a diet as I'm always feeling full after the meals .

Here in Maryland, I am still harvesting my fall lettuce.  Had a salad made with it tonight.  Also have some good collard green plants that I plan to harvest for Thanksgiving.  It's been a good year.

Yesterday's lunch included garden grown celeriac, roasted in a solar oven with onions. This is about half the batch since I didn't grab the camera fast enough:

What are you eating from your garden today? - Page 11 YpEpAUJ

It tasted something like celery-flavored potato bits. I'm not sure it justified a year or so of growing. Though, during the spring and summer, we also used a lot of celeriac foliage for stir fry. The main thing is that, once you get it started, it requires very little maintenance.

Picked lettuce out of the cold frame today, and had a delicious salad with it for dinner. Last winter was mild enough that we harvested lettuce all winter long, don't know if we'll be so lucky this year as they are predicting a colder than normal winter.
