Tiny tiny azur kohlrabi. Worms ate their leaves so they wouldn't grow bigger.

We've been harvesting lots of chili peppers from our windowsill-plants. Probably about 25 in total? And the plants are already full of big new ones, waiting to turn red.

Image
Got about 5 or 6 of these, although we planted the seeds late.

Almond potatoes.

I'm super jealous of everyones tomatoes.

god they're beautiful!!!!!!!!!
i wasn't planning to plant tomatoes this year but somehow managed to put in about two dozen plants.... the cherry seeds germinated (they're 4+ years old) and the starts looked so good.... we'll see what i get.
this weekend we had an entire meal's worth of snow peas. And i've been eating so many mulberries i'm thinking about making a pie. Have to pick twice a day otherwise they just end up on the ground.
I also just pulled out all my spinach yesterday, it was starting to bolt, and that plot didn't get much emending, so i decided to just pull it all out and bury some rotting veggies there and let it sit for a month or two.
so we had some just-barely-wilted spinach with garlic, olive oil and salt last night. stellar.

Today! Tons of woody-stalked basil for the bunnies, a few jalapenos, and surprise cucumbers! I thought all the cucumber vines died this summer, but some were hiding in the weeds. I'll let them go crazy and see if I get any more by the end of summer (we'll have at least another month before our first frost).

Yesterday I got a bunch of Black Beauty Eggplants, one Ichiban Eggplant, a couple of cucumbers, two white eggplants, some tiny bell peppers, and a ton of jalapenos & serranos.

We're now ready for winter! :)

They're all adorable, Jessica! We haven't had frost yet, but the cool, rainy weather killed off all the warm season crops months ago and provided nirvana for slugs. We're competing with each other over the winter greens, which also host an enormous number of gray aphids.

I ate my last butternut squash we had stored from the garden yesterday. Now I want to start gardening again, but it's below zero and snowing.

i have so many string beans that i don't know what to do. bean salad, beans as dippers, roasted beans, i've done pretty much everything but puree them.
same thing with tomatillos, but i can just eat them out of hand and be happy as can be.

I have had decent luck this year. Lots of Jerusalem artichokes -if you don't know what these are, they are the root of a sunflower that looks sort of like ginger and tastes like a globe artichoke heart. Melting sugar snow peas coming on. Broccoli is great, Cauliflower is doing good, as are the lettuce, carrots and celery. My fall potato crop tanked. The third time I replanted strawberries, the nurseryman asked me if I knew what I was doing. I said, "maybe not. I've only been a horticulturist for 35 years. I can still barely tell bee crepe from wild honey".

Some people say there ain't no hell, but they never farmed, so how can they tell?
