The garden season is coming to a close. No fall/winter garden for us. Good news for the kids. It means they get to dig and play and pretend plant until their hearts are content.
Even though I always get that inevitable yearly garden fatigue when I just get sick of watering, picking and bug killing towards the end up August, I always bounce back and start to like the garden again right before the first hard frost hits. and that is going to be happening soon.
so, here's a last look at what the garden is offering my family in terms of food.
|the last rogue carrot. Somehow it managed to not get picked when the rest of them did. I noticed it last week and decided to let it stay. (BTW, those short little carrots were pretty good.)|
|Son and Daughter's plants have EXPLODED with tomatoes again. dozens and dozens of green tomatoes that probably won't survive long enough to ripen.|
|Some Juliets. Man, I love these.|
The red bell peppers are the only other things left. And they have about 6 blooms on them too. They've done pretty well even though I think I put them too close to the tomatoes for them to really have enough sunlight. Next year, I'll space better. I think I've gotten 6 peppers off and used them in omelets and spaghetti sauces. They were pretty good.
