Spent a good portion of the day picking all that I could before frost and pulling some tomato plants. It has taken a good portion of the day to clear two 8ft tomato beds and pick a bunch of odds and ends.
|one last pile of beans will make a nice side one night this week. I thought they were done, they surprised me.|
|The raspberries are still going, there are several more blossoms out there. I don't know if they will make it past the frost though...|
|The one and only Dills Atlantic Giant, ha! It never did fully mature before the SVBs destroyed the vine. 2 more sugar pumpkins. That gives me 3 more to steam up and freeze! That is the last of them out of my garden for this year though.|
|Black Cherry tomatoes|
|small sweet peppers! Hopefully a good many will still turn! Otherwise, DH will be eating a lot of green peppers cause the kids don't like them green!|
|Matt's Wild Cherry. I still have not gotten all of these! I chopped off a huge portion of the plant and it is still 8 ft tall and the other "little" one, is not so little anymore!|
|Stole a shelf in the garage from DH. This is all the larger tomatoes. Those beds have been cleared.|
Lots of work while still trying to get over being sick. Blech! Was tempting to just leave it all. But I got most of it.
Anyone plant parsnips over winter? My mom keeps telling me that that is how my gramma grew them in MI, over the winter. Thinking about trying it. I have a box of parsnips that will be picked soon that were planted in spring. But now that I got the tomato bed cleaned out, I thought about putting some in there. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
