Picked the first lot of blackberries from the garden, they're a thornless variety.

Today's pickings included broc, cabbage, radishes red and white, and the first turnips of the fall.

Turnips seem to be an underappreciated crop in my part of the World, but I love them.

I just peel, slice and chill. Make a great snack.

First freeze predicted tomorrow...so today was a good time to harvest.

The sugar snap peas probably were the most vulnerable, but I just kept going thinning out several other plants. Cauliflower, broc., cabbage, radishes, turnips, and thinning out the carrot row.

Even found a lonely volunteer cherry tomato as a bonus.

That is a very photogenic pile of veggies! When in east Texas do you set those crops? I assume they are outside?

"Set" crops? Is that an Alabama expression? :) Thanks for the comment.

Carrots I start from seed in the ground when temps start to moderate in Oct. They then provide continuous supply from about Dec. as shown above to March as shown below. They, like the Long Island improved Brussels sprouts grow all fall/winter here and need to come out before temps start getting above 75 deg.

Southern slow mouth rules require me to leave out verbose or woody phrases. When do you set them out-sow-transplant etc.? Sorry to "sow" confusion with my lazy ways!
