Garden Update

I am torn in the garden between still clinging to summer by taking time each day to slowly harvest the squash and tomatoes that keep coming in, and pulling out beds and getting them put to sleep for the winter.  It still feels a bit like summer around here, but I feel like it is only a short time before the frost really sets in again.

We are still searching through the fields to find pie pumpkins hidden in the grass, and already they're making their way into the house in the form of soups and other treats. Thanks to some late plantings, we are also still getting lots of tomatoes for paste and sauce and salsa and ketchup, and everything else we can think of.  The cold cellar is rapidly filling up and the new chest freezer is being loaded up with goodies.









How's your garden growing?

Each Friday I share photos from our garden with an update about what we're doing, what's growing, and what we're eating.  I invite you to come play along, I love seeing what others are trying.  You can join the fun in 2 ways:

  • If you blog, I welcome you to write a post or share a post from that week about what's growing in your garden 
  • If you aren't a blogger, I invite you to join my gardening flickr group and share photos of your garden from this week
  • And last - if you don't want to blog or share photos, just follow along and check out all the links and photos and maybe share a comment with your own gardening experience from the week
