Fall Harvest

Sorry for the long delay, but I’m back!!

Green OnionMy garden woes this year have been well documented in this blog, from the non-producing tomato plants to the stolen cantaloupes. After the third time I discovered an eaten cantaloupe out there I basically washed my hands of the garden. I decided enough was enough and didn’t even worry about it. I stopped watering and never even went back there to check on things. I was so frustrated with the lack of production over the summer that I forgot all about how things always pick up quite a bit in the fall. Same as happened last year, when the weather cooled a little bit the garden started growing again. Despite my neglect (as you can see from the sorry state of my “jungle”, there was some serious neglect) the garden has rebounded quite nicely. We have already harvested some green onions that were put to good use, there must be at least 15 tomatoes growing in the jungle, and I even spotted a couple of cantaloupes growing. I’m not keeping my hopes up for the melons because I’ve been burned too many times already, but it’s nice to see some production.

Looks like we won’t be stuck with just the one $20 tomato. Maybe we’ll have 20 $1 tomatoes instead. :-)

  1. Yipee!!! So glad things are picking up again! We’ve already pulled out our tomatoes. All it took was one cold night and all the leaves turned black! That’s alright. I got 19 pints of tomatoes and 4 pints of marinara sauce out of them. Hope you get your $1.00 tomatoes!

  2. I am so glad you are back. I was really wondering about the garden and the critter capers. I still think you should build a little cage pver your mellons. Maybe I can help you when we get down there next week. See you soon.
