Grape (cherry) tomatoes will be the veggie to send to the orbit. Apparently they survive extreme heat of Florida. If you let them lie outside through Canadian winter, they will still grow in spring by themselves.

grape tomatoes, yellow pears and regular ones. It will be in the 30s tonight, but not freezing. I think our green beans have had it and our cukes, very strange. I even thing I will dig up the sweet potatoes next week. Of course we will wrap all the taters in newspaper so they can ripen slowly. Now I am making plans for next year.

Sorry, I'm done for the season. my container garden was on my deck, north side of the house and now with the fall/winter sun so low, there's no more sun (stopped like clockwork Sept 1st) . I did plant lettuce seeds in planters and have them on my front sidewalk, but my gardening out there is very restricted due to neighbors driving by all the time and seeing my pots strewn across my front walkway. I'm sure the HOA loves it. However, I have harvested lettuce for salads as well as some baby kale.

Yellow pear tomatoes, collard greens and broccoli. But it's pretty much done otherwise so around the middle of the month I am going to turn it over and add the mulch and manure for the winter.

Tomatoes, winter savory, basil, mint (chocolate, pineapple, peppermint, cocomint), strawberry plants, succulents (they just keep the veggies company & hide from the deer with the veggies behind a fence).

Its been 28 degrees at night, so not much is still growing. We are going to harvest the pumpkins, banana squash, and hubbards tomorrow. We still have onions and garlic growing. The Swiss chard is going to be picked by tomorrow. We also need to pick more sage and whatever else is left in the herb garden.

We have tomatoes, radishes and carrots.

We are preparing the ground right now for beets, spinach, cabbage and broccli. I am picking up an aged load of donkey manure. It should really give a kick to the veggies!
