My big pumpkin rotted...so I decided to pick the other fully orange ones. I also picked my teensy butternut squash and the chinese pumpkin my mom gave me seeds for. I made pumpkin soup with soymilk and herbs from the garden.

Thank goodness, too. I don't really have any fresh veggies in the house and I have been gardening ALL day long. I planted trees and shrubs, transplanted a few ferns and things and mulched. I am supposed to wait until next year...but I really want a couple of azaleas... just say no.

I need to do a lot of weeding tomorrow and I'm going to follow mnita's excellent example and start pulling up a few things to make way for the oodles of lettuce I hope to grow.

I love radishes - the Philadelphia white box radishes were very good. I suspect the purple plum and misato rose varieties will not make it to maturity before the cold weather arrives as they are growing slower than the packets said they would even though we've had great weather.

up came the okra plants today, or let's put it this way, I cut them down to the ground, now lets see if they dry up, so I can get them out of the ground. It was amazing how much new growth the plants had. I did pick some cherry tomatoes and have a bunch more, plus a lot of grape ones (they are huge) I just don't know if they will rippen. I think I will play it by ear. If they are still completely green in a couple of weeks, I will pick them before we leave and wrap them in newspaper.

Cherry tomatoes and a green pepper! I babied the green peppers in late winter...but I transplanted them to a bad spot. I moved them, but with the rain and cold I thought they were goners! I saw green peppers today! I think I got a "chocolate" variety, but I wanted to eat at least one before the bugs get them, so I put it in a salad.

I had a few cherry tomatoes and green peppers too. My okra is still looking OK, I am hoping it will produce couple more pods. This afternoon I found a bunny in my tightly fenced patio, mom told me she saw one and I didn't believe her, here he was just looking at me and not moving. I chased him and boy he runs fast and he went out thru the gap between my fence and my neighbors. I have to block this gap soon before I plant any new greens.

I have a few ripe cherry tomatoes that I intend to make a salad today. I have 5 small eggplants in my fridge waiting to be cooked soon.

How about reviving the thread? I had lunch with my overwintered cabbage. Steamed.

If only weed was a super food, I'd be the healthiest guy in the world.
