Technically there is still one more week of summer, but recent temperatures have been cool and very fall-like. With overnight lows in the 50s and low 60s, I think veggie production is going to slow down considerably. I think we got all we could out of our only bush bean plant--two pints! Not bad considering we started it late. Our tomato plants have slowed down a lot, but the peppers are loaded with fruit and still cranking them out. The pictures above are recent harvests of peppers and beans. Garden chores accomplished over the weekend: We cleaned a lot of pots off the deck, specifically the sunflowers and squash plants, which were dead and brown and scraggly.
The Sweet Chocolate peppers are FINALLY starting to ripen into their dark brown color--I think. They look a little orange right now.
