The Garden Winds Down

Leave a comment

The garden produced prolifically this year.  It was a great year for watermellon and corn.  Heck, even the squash lasted for several months before it was wiped out by the squash beetles.

Some of the last of the bounty is coming in now.

The tomato plans and the peppers have lots more production to go before they peter out. Meanwhile, the corn and the sunflowers are done. So down they come.

I will stand up the husks in a typical Fall display, probably tomorrow.

The best way to garden in the Fall is apparently to go to Norway. Then when you come back, it is actually Fall and time to move wood and gather in the last of the garden.

The garden is quite the disaster.

But hiding behind all of those brown corn and sunflower stalks is a bunch of good stuff: pumpkins, sweet peppers, cayene, jalapeño, habañero, carrots, beets, and watermelon. More to come too!

Mini pumpkins hide under the grass and weeds.

An entire basket of peppers with more to come.

Fin.
