All my okra could blow over it wouldn't hurt my feelings any.

(Probably) final post of the year, since we've had frost warnings a few days in a row:

The carrots did so much better than expected, and so much better than potatoes, that we will definitely grow them again. They taste good, too. I forget the variety, being too lazy to go down and look at the seed packet.








Cilantro had always bolted on us...not now! It's freezing here, and they're in a pot with beets:





My little volunteer tomatoes are still growing, with about nine small fruits. I wonder if we can keep them alive indoors?

I've been asked to ID the carrot variety. They were Danvers 126---the only packet left when we looked for them. These are a full-sized carrot, so I feared they wouldn't do well in the container. But maybe it worked in our favor? They grew FAST. Like, boom!

Well I am about to visit our small farmers market in about an hour. There will be only one vender there today. He has a great all garden, but even he is running out of produce. I think he said this is his last week. All we have left is a lot of basil. I am bringing it in today, going to make a huge batch of pesto to last through the winter and then put the plant in the sun room. I want to see how long I can keep it alive. That's it for this season.

actually just checked the weather, it looks like no frost this coming week, just temps in the high 30s for the low. I am still not taking a chance, the basil comes in today.

I am determined to clean up the garden today. It is still in the 80s this week, but I shouldn't wait any longer, lest I get caught doing it when its cold out.

I can't believe my pepper plants, long hots and cherry hots, are still producing! I'm in NJ and we've had frost and freeze already! I planted them on 05/02/15 and they are still going strong. I picked a bunch yesterday and made about 4 pounds of chili. So good! I don't know how much longer they will go but this has been the longest yet. This has been my best year ever for all my veggies. I don't know if it was due to the weather or that I grew everything in containers this year.

I love coming here and seeing everyone's pictures!

Garden this morning. The green in the upper right corner is Kale. Apparently nothing kills Kale.

The final harvest of the year...maybe.



No hard frost yet, and about a dozen infant peppers, and of course the cilantro/beet greens are still going.

a quick gardening tip:

Many plants benefit from their neighbors in different ways. For instance, strawberries taste more flavorful when grown near thyme and corn provides a natural trellis for bean plants. Planting a bright marigold border around squash plants discourages squash bugs from devouring your crop.
