Do your tomato plants look this sad?


Oh so droopy! Although I know that this is the natural course of events, I just don’t want our bountiful season to end! I planted some baby spinach not long ago and it has sprouted for a late season crop. And I shouldn’t complain because I made what is probably my last kale salad this morning. I also put some beef chili in the crock pot!

At least I’m still getting some tomatoes!

Late Summer Garden

The garden is still producing. I have tomatoes, basil, and a couple bunches of kale left. We are leaving the green and purple beans to dry on the plant, because the kids are really curious about what will happen. My 9yo wants to save seeds, and my 13yo wants to eat them dry. The cucumbers, however, are mutant pale green baseballs. Probably lack of fertilization?
