As we say adios to many of the summer crop, she’s not through yet. The peppers, eggplant, bean, tomatoes and even the squash are still growing and we hope to they continue to produce until the first frost – which usually happens in November or December.
The second summer crop of tomatoes are doing well; the first, however, are starting to come down. Yep, the massive 10 ft tomatoes are pretty much spent and it’s time to take ’em out and put in the peas.
On the leafy green front –still battling those darn harlequin bugs. Not even the strongest natural insecticide seems to put a dent in their destructive habits.
Not that we are hoping for ccccold weather but frost does help when it comes to natural methods of control of unruly pests.
Here are a few snapshots of what the garden looks like in October.
