That's one of the best smells ever.
Sweet potatoes are cured and time for some fries in the air fryer. I definitely will plant them from now on.
Root cellar is filling up.

I haven’t had sweet patio fries in at least a couple years! Use to make them all the time. Mix them up in preferred seasoning or spices and veggie oil and bake to a crisp!

We lease a field to a farmer.  Last year they grew oats.  This year blue potatoes they sell to Terra Blue Chips.  We pick up what is left behind after harvest. 

 

 They make excellent fries.  The color is more deep purple cut open.

It's amazing the color you find in potatoes. Very diverse veggie  8) and many of us just use white or yellow flesh ones.  ;D

I tried planting Adirondack blue potatoes one year but didn't get many. Yours look like my beets.

This is why I don't grow broccoli. Went to my local Amish store today and they had fresh local broccoli for 69 cents a head and they were almost as big as a dinner plate 8).


 
Can't wait for them to start picking cauliflower.

I cooked a cauliflower cut into florets inside a tinfoil packet with sea salt on the grill for the first time.  It was delicious. 
The fries turned out good.  Before fryer pic.

Local farmer here was hauling in a load of boxed cauliflower as I was coming home. I have seen his stuff once in awhile in the local Atlantic Superstore (grocery store) in Woodstock.

Spud harvest has started here this week to. The farmer here by the house has no crew on the harvester, they are at the potato house when they unload. They dig 24 rows at a time I believe. And he has a lot of trucks. The harvester alone is a $600,000 machine, but there are smaller machines that gather other rows and pile them into the rows he digs (wind rowers). He grows 900 acres.

They haven't started harvesting potatoes by me yet. There are a couple thousand acres of muckland they use for them and onions and Its amazing to watch the old army 6 x6s fitted with 20 ton potato boxes go buy. They have a fleet and one goes by about every 15 minutes for a month. Love the sound of them coming up the hill. There used to be a bump in the road in front of my house and I would collect about 50 pounds of potatoes each year from ones that bounced out and hit the grass. To bad they redid the road 3 years ago. Nothing like the sweetness of muck grown potatoes.

I took a stroll down to the garden yesterday and had a look over the squash vines. What was green and small 2 weeks ago, has yielded another 6 squash that are sizing up and ripening.

We've got lots of fresh big beef steak tomatoes to finish out the season. We've made sauce and canned all we want. Only so much you can eat. The rest can feed the worms. :D

Those bell peppers sure produced this year, still lots more coming on. Wish I was into pickled peppers, but not a big fan. We've got lots frozen for meat dishes. The plant stalks are pretty stout and look like small tree bark. :D

Aside from critters chewing on stuff earlier in the season, I'd say the garden has been very successful. Just amazing. :)

The temps dropped but most likely will rebound some .Then it dawned on me I'd best get with it and do some fried green tomatoes while I still have some .I use the method they use in Dolly Wood and got it right from the cooks there but it's on the internet also .

I harvested some beets yesterday and dehydrated most of them. Some were giants but still sweet. My first time trying this and they have 100x the flavor of a cooked beet. Too strong to enjoy so they will be ground and used for flavoring.

It's hard to plant enough just for fresh produce for two old folks .I threw away more this year than we used in just two raised beds .We don't can or freeze and her kids are in Toledo and mine are in Columbus and the only thing  left is to  feed the ground hogs .What they don't eat if they germinate will become a jungle next year .Saying that the season is about over .
