The time has come to take one last look at what’s going on in the garden, which isn’t much, to say the least. Last weekend we cleared most any fruit off of the plants, except for the peppers and pole beans. A number of those plants are still going fairly strong. However, Mother Nature threw us a curve ball these past couple days with bringing our first frost a couple weeks early. It’s going to get warmer this week, so there’s still hope for at least a few plants. And we brought a couple of our potted pepper plants (say that five times fast) inside, so hopefully we can keep them going for awhile longer.
Back outside, we decided this year that instead of pulling up all the plants out of the bed and composting them, we’d simply cut them down and compost them in the beds themselves. We started doing that a little, but we still have a long way to go. Taking that as a nominal segue, let’s get on with the gallery!
So that’s going to do it for our last look at this year’s garden. We’ll recap all the ups and down next week in what we be our final blog post of the season. Hard to believe 2015’s gardening season is coning to a close, but now it’s time to get on with winter prep. So much to do!
