Summer Gardening Coming to an End

Our garden has blessed Andrew & I with a ton of veggies!  At times, we had so many that we were giving our neighbors bi weekly deliveries.  Now that summer is officially over we have decided to start getting ready for winter gardening.  We went out to assess our plants and tear out any barren ones but our garden is not ready to be replaced yet!  I must admit, the last week we have slightly neglected our garden and couldn’t believe how much it is still producing!!!  We started our winter seeds and should have a greenhouse built by the time they are ready to go in to the ground!

Garden Update

It has been a while since I posted about my garden… or about anything at all!  Our garden has grown quite a bit!  Some plants have definitely grown more than I even imagined and they have been a lesson to us in spacing for our garden next time!

 Watermelons

Herb Box which has become all green onions and basil

These are my grape/squash/pepper plants… I was originally growing grapes on this lattice that Andrew and I made but I had some left over soil from plant seeds that never grew so I through the extra soil onto the grape plant.  A few days later a squash and pepper plant started growing!  I guess the seeds just needed some more sun!

Heirloom & Bell Shaped Tomatoes

Summer Squash


Swiss chard

Eggplant

Peppers

Jalapeno & Habanero Peppers

I think these are beets but they may be just more swiss chard

We have been eating squash, tomatoes, herbs and peppers like crazy!  I am so excited for eggplant!  Growing our own garden has been so much fun and I have such peace of mind knowing where our food is coming from!
