In past years this would be the time I would ponder putting the garden to bed. Not this year. The tomatoes are still doing well yet other things have been yanked out. Making room for a few experiments.
I planted these a couple of weeks ago…
Will they be ready before the frost? I dunno. But I would never know if I didn’t try! We shall see.
Today I added these…..
30 days to maturity. Maybe.
42 days. Maybe.
I’ve had a new helper in the garden this year. One of my daughters has moved back in (until further notice) and brought with her, her four legged friend. Ms. Elsa (aka: Salsa, Sausalito, Monkey, Bubby, and so and so on.).
It has become a daily ritual for her to check on the veggies with me. Oddball that she is, she has taken to eating a few things that I harvest.
She loves freshly cherry tomatoes and peas. Today I offered a sweet banana pepper.
Yup. She liked that too.
It is with mixed feelings that I say goodbye to summer (not yet, but soon!). I do welcome the cooler temperatures for sure. Enjoy the waning days!
