Fall Documentation

October 5, 2009

We have entered the Fall weather limbo phase around here.  Not warm like summer, not cold like winter.  Which means not much produce left.  Still picking pole and bush beans 3 or 4 times a week yielding between 1 and 2 lbs.  I know, I can’t believe it either.  A warmer growing season and I would have been freezing them or giving these guys away.  Picked another full-sized zucchini and 2 baby Zephyrs.  Had some flowering broccoli, so I cut that.  Cut 4 green tomatoes to ripen in paper bags on the counter for a couple weeks – they all appear to be piriform red pears.  In an extremely tough year for toms, these guys pulled through somehow, so they’ll surely be in the lineup next year.

Speaking of next year, I’m already researching hoop-supported row covers for my beds so I can get things started a bit earlier.  Our season is too short to be mucking about the first week of June.  Warmer-weather things like toms, eggplant and peppers need to be in the ground by 2nd week of May, under those covers at night.
