Harvesting Soup Peas & Lots More

The garden is constantly producing lots of produce now, I've just set to harvesting my big batch of soup peas and trying to make sure I keep on top of everything else. 
Here's another video showing what's happening in the garden.

  2. Peas. We have so many peas. In salads and soups, with rice and noodles. Peas. Good thing we like them.

    1. Peas would be a real key to self sufficiency in this country.

  3. Great video! I'm interested in learning how you process the quinoa. I'm surprised it's grown so well!

    1. I'm interested in that bit as well. not grown it before but my girls are great at thressing crops so I should have no problem knocking it out of the seed heads. It's grown like mad!

  4. Great video. Questions: do you make a plan in the winter as to what crop will follow what and where ( I may have missed this, sorry if I did)? how long have you been expanding your growing area to get to this size?
    I grew quinoa last year or the year before, don't remember - ended up feeding to chickens. Will be glad to see what you do with it.
    Also, I posted that antique Apple I can't ID, stop over and take a peek if you get a chance.

    1. Each year I expand a bit, but last year I didn't and covered the whole far garden with plastic and only had about 16 beds in the main one. I was working full time then and the boy was only 6 months old. I always bite off more than I can chew though!
      I have a planting plan but this is the first year I've really had so many multicropping beds, I should get three crops out of some of them, two from most. My plans will be for each bed. I keep a record and make sure that no crops follow each other. but I divide my crops into growups of about 8-10 families, so for instance I don't have "roots" I might have carrot family and beet family, they can follow each other if they have to.
