Early September Harvest
This weekend, I picked all of my Sweet Banana peppers and pulled the plants to make room for some fall sowings of radishes, claytonia and mache. I'm a bit late with these this year but that's what happens when your garden is overtaken by mosquitoes.
The tomato vines are looking horrible now. Our paste tomatoes are still producing but the rest have succumb to disease.
The fall berries are coming in consistently, but a little at a time. I might try to root some raspberry canes next year to expand our current patch.
Finally, I ripped out our zucchini vines last week and discovered these two monsters. They are hard and heavy at this point. I wonder if they are even edible at this stage. At the very least, we can use them as fall decorations.
