The Fall Garden

Cabbage, Brussels sprouts, chard, beets and tomatillos remain the features. A new crop of romaine, cauliflower, radish and beets are in.

On the other side of the yard the cucumbers are finally ready for harvest. It's been the tastiest crop of cucumbers ever. They were slow coming on, but worth the wait. Sweet, crisp and juicy.

I lost all of my squash and pumpkin to the vine borer. But the tomatoes and raspberries still won't quit. I have made five pots of tomato sauce to can. We've eaten eight jars already. There are twenty-two more to store for the winter so far, and still I'm not done.
