I dug up some of the potatoes. Harvested one cucumber and some cherry and sungold tomatoes. I am getting a little bit of this and that but not much extra of things for preserving! Bah humbug!
The fence we put up to keep Coco out of the green beans did not keep her out. She kept crawling through openings that were large enough for her to get through. I gave up and tore them all out. I have some planted elsewhere in the garden and hope I will get a few to eat from there. I also have a few pole and scarlet runner beans growing in the garden. I had planted the yellow summer squash and the zuchini in 5 gallon pots. Since I had too many growing in the pot, I pulled out some and planted them out of the garden area thinking maybe they would be safe. HAHAHA I had one yellow squash I was about ready to pick and then Coco got sick about 15 to 3AM one morning. Yep, she had eaten all of that yellow summer squash and it must have been too much for her little tummy. I had given her a few cut up pieces of squash in the house before but this must have been overload!! Needless to say I did not want to clean up anymore messes at 3AM so pulled all the ones outside of the fenced garden area and threw them away. Yep! I still love my little furbaby!
I am harvesting a cuke or two right along but not enough to make any refrigerator pickles or freezer dills. Bah humbug!
A few blueberries from the one bush that is producing. There are just a few more out there yet. Bowl of blackberries. The two bushes are really producing a lot this year. Two bad we are not real fond of them! I will probably make jam or blackberry syrup out of them. Or a pie!
The cherry tomatoes are really producing well. I am getting a few sungold too and I really like them.
Isn't this ugly! The three tomatoes had these ugly spots on them. The rest of the tomatoes seem to be okay now. Something had eaten that hole in the green pepper too. (Wasn't Coco either!) Bah humbug!
Lettuce, two cukes and four strawberries!!!! The strawberries were a nice treat for "wonderful gardener" and I to share!
This is a fine how do you do!!! I have two dwarf Asian pear trees. On one the pears seem to be fine. On the other a lot of them are cracked like this one in the picture. Why!!!??? We were trying to water them because we didn't get rain for quite awhile and then we did get some rain. I wouldn't think it was from too much water but what do you think???? Bah humbug!
The Hibiscus has started to bloom. I will end on a positive note with this picture. Is it time to put the gardens to bed for the winter yet!
