We got our first real frost last night, right on schedule (our average first frost date is 9/13). I was able to start cleaning out the garden this morning; with the huge tomato plants out of the way we can finally walk around a bit. Now I have a ton of green tomatoes!
I took these photos a few weeks ago, in part to help me draw up where I put everything this year. Soon I’ll be tallying just how much I harvested this year and planning out next year’s garden.
Top Right looking back.
Plus broccoli, swiss chard,arugula, potatoes, radish,tomatoes
Peas- spring and fall lants work best.
Lala trying to nibble on the garden goodies before the goats went to their new home.
Green beans- favorite- only second to buttered peas.
Radish going to seed. Hopefully, we’ll save some seed this year.
Carrots- great harvest! Purple are Cosmic Purple and orange are Nantes.
Celeriac- looking forward to these! The tops are quite tasty too. If the boys leave me any I’ll dry some for seasoning.
Onions bulbing up.
The pumpkin patch.
Quite a few!
Picking the last of the gren beans.
The cherry tomatoes loved the fence line.
They were quite productive.
Even got some vine ripened this year.
Bok choy- Molly’s first planting- not quite where I was going to plant them but they’ve done reasonably well.
Parsley,beets, and onions-still going strong.
Radish- this one is French Breakfast.
Kale- it likes this spot, one of the first seeds I planted and still going strong.
