Last of the Garden

Not much left in the garden now. Today Erin and pulled the last of the carrots and beets. The late zuchinni is setting on some fruit now and I hope it keeps heading in that direction. The kale got hit hard by cabbage moth larvae, so Joe sprayed it with some neem and hopefully that will kill the worms and it will come back. The green beans in the raised beds have produced nicely and I have put 5 quarts of beans in the freezer, more than I had expected. The cucumbers are having a cuke now and again and have climbed above the weeds now where I can see them. Tomatoes are sporadic, but nice enough when they show up. The San Marinos (similar to romas) are quite loaded if all goes well might be sauce in the future.

I made a tomato pie though it didn't turn out quite as I might have liked, still delicious but too much juice in the tomatoes made bottom crust soggy. It still got eaten :)

I can feel Autumn in the air now. Rain expected tomorrow tonight, some storms maybe and then a cool front with temps dropping. I don't mind that. Summer is not my favorite season though I do love the veggies.

I am ready to move on from this summer. I love Autumn.

I appreciate living in a place where we have four distinct seasons.
I am grateful for my daughter's help with the carrots.
I am grateful for the produce we have harvested this year and for the lesson in which I learned I didn't appreciate the productive years as much as I might have.
