Summer has almost come to a close, and so has gardening season. Here's a look at the garden bed:
The cucumber vines have all died back, but the tomatoes, peppers, and marigolds are still going strong.
The tomatoes are a big tangle of vines. I think next year I'll buy another tomato cage and separate the plants a little more. Hopefully that'll make picking the tomatoes easier too. (This year I put all four plants around one cage which has proven to be a little chaotic.)
But they're still producing mightily (averaging about 50 - 70 a day).
The pepper plant is finally doing well. We have 6 peppers growing!
I planted some radish seeds last week since our first frost date usually falls around mid-October. This variety of radish needs 24 days til harvest so we should have plenty of time. It's nice to squeeze in a little more growing right before the end of the season.
It's almost the end of days for the Black-Eyed Susans:
And a similar fate is coming for the zinnias:
Although a couple still look pretty up close.
How's your garden?
