Wow! It's the end of October and I never expected to still be posting about the garden. However, the weather is changing and snow is predicted for the weekend. So, it's time to clean-up. I came home yesterday to my husband doing just that and he had found all kinds of goodies. Here's the list:
1. tomatillos - 7+ lbs
2. tomatoes - 4 lbs
3 peppers, mixed hot varieties - just under a pound
4. beets - didn't weigh but there was a bucket full
5. beet greens
6. squash - 2 varieties, didn't weigh
7. green beans - about 1 1/2 lbs
8. spinach - 2 or 3 lbs
9. romaine - about 1 lb
10. broccoli - 2 or 3 lbs
What a list! That isn't all that is still out there either. The broccoli was left to see what would happen with the coming weather because it might still be productive and the chard was left. I will some chard this afternoon just to make sure I have some for the coming week.
So, the garden is mostly cleaned up now. The spinach bed was picked and then covered for spring spinach. The garlic is growing. It is always sad to say good bye to the garden. However, it does mean that there will be more time for sewing and I do have lots of sewing plans.
Happy Gardening (or is that sewing)!
