The last few weeks have been a last gasp for the garden. Pumpkins are ripening. Tomatoes are finally turning red. The peppers are changing. A final few cucumbers are dangling on the dying vines. The Patio Baby eggplants have been overly productive and we’ve had to be creative in finding ways to eat them.
I’m hoping the carrots and beets will be ready soon too. They were a touch small when I pulled a few up last month, so I’m hoping that they have added some width and will be ready to harvest. I’m tempted to try putting in a winter garden with some garlic and overwintered kale too.
