Welcome reader to my blog - a mixture of this and that. Now that we are living in a retirement community in downtown Columbia, MD my personal gardening activities are somewhat curtailed. I still enjoy visiting gardens, reading, watching wildlife on my walks, traveling, and occasional food commentary. Please leave a comment if you feel inspired to do so. I read every one of them.

September Harvest Monday



The theme of harvests this week was tomatoes, beans, zucchini, eggplant and peppers. The tomatoes are needing to be sauced and the beans are needing to be eaten. The rest have long since been used for meals.

It's time for the eggplant to be pulled from the garden and composted. I think the tomatoes will have the same fate. There are a few small zucchinis out there which may be added to dinner this week before those plants are compost.

For the fall I have beets and snowpeas growing, but the spinach is a no show! I'll have to plant garlic soon, too.

See other harvests at Daphne's Dandelions.

Those beans look wonderful! Nice harvest pictures. I found you through Harvest Monday, btw.

Ooo, that's a good looking eggplant. Over all, that's an excellent harvest for so late in the year!

There is always a little sadness for me when I have to start pulling plants at the end of the season. BUT then... there is delight in planning for the next round of crops.

Your harvest looks beautiful.

Nice looking eggplant and tomatoes, a future eggplant parmesan perhaps!

I need to get out and pull up some tomatoes too. I think they are ready to come out. Not all of them but a few plants.

Wow, it is almost garlic planting time. How the season speeds along.
