Well, it’s Fall. So happy fall folks! Here on the urban homestead we are trying to squeeze out another round of summer crops before it gets too cold.
The late/fall summer garden is growing nicely, though with the continue roller coaster weather pattern (hot a couple days then cool) not sure how long the summer crops will last.
Actually while I was walking through the yard the other day admiring the bees the garden looked to me like an early summer garden instead of a late summer/fall one. Normally at this time of year one needs a machete to get through the tiny paths or have to yell out looking for someone due to the towering “giant” vegetables (10 ft tomatoes and even eggplant). But it’s not the case this year. You can just sense something is not quite right and even the “look” of the garden is obvious that something is definitely off this year.
Very weird, very weird indeedy.
Late summer garden – tomatoes, squash, peppers, beans, eggplant.

Pepper harvest! Time for me to pickle a peck of peppers
Homegrown tomatoes- finally!
Zukes alive! I suspect Farmer J is letting these beauties grow a little bit larger to pad the poundage?
One of my favorite fall crops. Pomegranates!
