Except the pumpkins which are still hanging on. Here's the biggest:
What an awesome looking Pumpkin.

Just picked what looks like about my last Okra, I only got 2 and I have torn out a few tomatoes. I think all that we can really count on is more cukes and the fall veggies. We might get a few more grape tomatoes, even then I am not sure they will set. I think it was just too hot for too long.

Gotta share this, we canned ,(yes canned!) some pumpkin bread a couple years ago, brought them out, and Hay, they are still good! so think about it, good survival food. We are planting some herbs now, and one of our neighbors told us she got in all her fall crops , wow , she is fast . Enjoy

I got a couple more Asian pears. YES the animals did not beat me to them. I haven't bought fruit from the store in a while, thanks to them! I also got tons of cherry and grape tomatoes.

I used the tomatoes with marjoram and the garlic chives (perennial booya!) to make pasta salad. I looked at the pumpkins again...still not ready to eat...I know...but I'm dying to taste them. Yesterday I had more kohlrabi. Leaves and the bulbs as a snack.

I officially love Kohlrabi. It is delicious. Pls the couple of bux I spent on seeds are worth it. I steamed some leaves w/ rice and stirfried the rest. Feeling good as the garden is currently saving me money in terms of food.

I am currently simmering some tomatoes, green peppers, onions, and a little garlic in a big pot with some spices for hot sausage sandwiches tonight. I'm kind of making up the recipe as I go; so far, so good!

Sirron, that's my kind of food, dude. It sounds delicious. I got two PERFECT Asian pears this morning... Also got a lot of cherry and grape tomatoes. It looks like the "sauce" tomatoes I planted didn't grow. I'm definitely planting those next year. I like tomatoes, but I prefer less "juice."

I have been getting few cherry tomoatoes everyday. I have couple bell peppers and eggplants that mom will stuff with a rice mix. My garden is dwindling and if I don't put anything in the ground soon I won't have anything this fall. Any suggestions on something fool proof for me to plant.
