It's almost time to get the garden closed for the year. I don't do a fall garden. Once school starts, I've moved on. We picked the last pumpkin, which bring our total to 5. W pulled up the rest of the sweet potatoes. There were a few small summer squash, green peppers, and one weirdly shaped eggplant left.
I'll be retiring my gloves! I trimmed and cleaned up the blackberry bushes and killed my poor fingers. I pulled 7 thorn splinters and have a dozen more!
These lovely guys were planted in my white boxes. There was a rumor at school that a little farm stand down the road had beautiful big mums for $5.50. Awesome price for this size!
I picked about 3 gallons of green tomatoes and there are still about that many on the plants. I ran out of time and energy.
There were a number of ready tomatoes as well. I wish I had the time, or really more, the energy or motivation to can one last batch. A friend suggested I freeze some. I did, but I'm thinking the flavor will be really off.
