Still getting green beans. Tomatoes have slowed to a crawl. Potatoes are making a second crop. Squash still going. Most everything else is gone and we didn't start a winter crop. We haven't got the killing frost yet.

I just cleaned up the garden this past weekend. I left the broccoli for the bees as I always do. It'll keep putting on flowers and feeding the bees until it freezes hard as a rock. That's a good 8 weeks away, at least.
Our garden was absolutely stellar this year, we used just about everything. We were totally spoiled. Having just that little strip of dirt sure made me appreciate all the years of having great big gorgeous gardens.
Suburbia is hell.

Still crushing the jalpenos. Put up 4 quarters of pickled ones on Sunday. The bushes are still loaded, as are the bell peppers. I also planted 50-60 yellow onion bulbs this past weekend. The collards are giant! I think I'm ready to start cutting them by next week. 18 plants will take me into Feb. eating one per week. I'll give away a couple. The rutabagas, cabbage, and mustard are also doing well. Still have quite a bit of time for the Brussels sprouts. Hell, they probably won't be ready until around Feb or Mar. I'll try to get some pics this weekend.

From post #305 to today - a little over 2 months. I'm cutting a collard head tomorrow. Can't wait. Peppers have slowed and have a little frost damage. I'll pull them after Thanksgiving and will plants a couple hundred more onions. Why not?

Although i was unable to plant a lot of veggies this season, I still enjoyed watching you alls gardens progress. Thanks for posting pictures.

Im over the cold weather already and it has just begun. Is it spring yet?

I know I should have taken more pictures, but I didn't. I must say this year was the most productive and easiest year yet. The square foot garden with mushroom compost is certainly the way to go. I had more bell peppers than I could handle and the plants were huge!! I also got a ton of beans (contender is a easy and quick bean) and the soy beans were awesome as well ( I need to plant closer next year). The tomato's are still producing and I got some pics of those. Thanks again Jaime, I am going to try and grow at least one of each seed you sent. It may take me 20 years, but it should be fun!

I have already started on my winter garden. It was 76 here on Saturday and I was afraid my lettuce would bolt. But it's doing good. I have some black seeded simpson, some soloist chinese cabbage, rocky top lettuce salad mix and some danver carrots. I must say these carrots are coming up waaaay quicker than before. I think that is due to using fresher seeds and carrot tape.

I'll get some new pics of it all. But again, SFG is the way to go!

Lastly, I should have a treat in the spring which I'll show you all. For now it's a secret.
