Well, it looks like the garden season is over for me.
Last night it snowed — not one of my favorite weather events, but what can you do. When I was taking a picture from the 2nd floor window, it looks like this little bee was also a little sad about the snow and was hanging on for dear life.
I have to say, it was a pretty productive year. My husband and I were graced with tomatoes, green beans, peas, kohlrabi, broccoli, peppers, kale, swiss chard, garlic, onions, celery, tomatillos, carrots, spinach and lettuce. I had one baby cucumber and one baby butternut squash come out of all my squash plants — they all ended up getting powdery mildew since I did not spray anything on them to keep it at bay.
I think the broccoli plants were the most successful for me — they just kept producing over and over. I’d go out, pick a few heads, eat some, and then give a few to my dog. Same with the peas…who knew dogs would like green veggies?
Time to start planning for next year!
