oh my…it’s been awhile

oops…been so busy starting another blog, that i guess i forgot to keep up with this one, but, its not like the garden(s) have forgot.  what’s new…and old.  the okra is pretty much done.  i have left a lonely burgundy okra on the plant to hopefully get seeds for next year.  actually, that’s the only plant that has slowed down.  basil will be ready to pick again in a week or so.  The lima beans are still producing. The marconi peppers, california wonders, and the poblanos are going nuts.  I always thought of them as a hot weather plant, but when fall gets close, they really turn up their production.  they tomatoes are still coming on.  which is good since i still want to can pasta/marinara sauce.

the fall/winter planting has begun.  soy beans, green beans, leeks, onions (my experiment), rutabaga, beets, radish, and lettuce, have been planted and are up and growing.  in the next few days, i will plant peas, carrots and more lettuce.  just finished an interesting trellis for the green bean.  i will post that later this week.

and now for the photos…
