In between the rain and drizzle, we’ve had a few warm temperature days.
Not warm enough to dry anything out really. Just good weather to get outside for a few more precious hours.
The garden is muddy and weedy; the sunflower seed heads are even molding.
I wanted to harvest the last vegetables, before it gets much colder.
A dishpan full of red and green peppers.
I’m surprised there were that many red ones, but it is October, so they’ve had long enough to turn.
Quite a nice batch of jalapeños. I’ll just wash them and pop them whole into the freezer.
Some beets. Sweet golden beets, and a fun striped variety. Dark red ones I’ll get another day.
And some green onions and raspberries!
The raspberry bush is still full of potential berries, so I pick a few every other day or so.
Overall, the vegetable garden did very poorly this year. Some poor planting decisions I made, a lot of rain, not really enough heat.
But the critters didn’t do much damage, I had lots of flowers, and the gourds were a success.
And there’s always next year to try again!
