Going on in the PNW from Scratch Garden – November 2015

In spite of peaks newly blanketed with snow, down here we have not yet had the first frost of the year. We must be getting close, it was 38 (F) last night. The wood stove is going full blast today, working hard to keep the edge off.
Still, the garden keeps going. This is what we have been munching on…

Northwest Grown Pomegranate!

The newest addition to our Pacific Northwest edible landscape, Angel Red Pomegranate. Hardy in USDA zones 7-11 means it can stand a freeze down to about 5 degrees (F). That, plus it is reported to produce sweet juicy choice red fruits! So last spring when I stumbled upon this exotic edible landscape plant at my local nursery and read all that it promised on the tag, I couldn’t help myself. I had to have it.

The Deer Win… For Now.

The deer don’t usually even start pressuring the garden until mid-August, but this year was just so dry they started early. Unfortunately, my grass actually was greener, and they knew it. The deer have won. For now. Time to reassess and strategize.
