My germs have given up on my throat area (no more soreness) and are now attacking my sinuses and what feels like whole head area. Have been fighting a headache today so just took a walk outside in the fresh air to see if that would clear my noggin up a bit. (It didn't, but felt good to be out there anyway.)
I knew tomatoes needed to be picked but when I bent over my head started throbbing so Papa Pea came to the rescue and did the harvesting for me.
This bed of two cherry tomato plants that is now covered with a cold frame at night may look a little worse for wear . . .
. . . but it's still bearing like crazy. Hubby brought in 5-1/2 lbs. of cherry tomatoes.
I haven't covered the cucumber bed with a cold frame nor have I thought to check for full-sized slicing cucs recently because I thought it was too cold for them to grow any more. Guess I was wrong.
My fall planted broccoli isn't growing as fast as I had hoped. I think this bed is gonna need a cold frame over it if the broccoli stands a chance of maturing.
This is my best looking of the Brussels sprouts plants. Looks like it's time to remove some more leaves.
These are the same two pumpkins that are in my header photo. I think they're both about 18" across now. I have never, ever grown such BIG pumpkins! I tried to lift the one closest in the foreground of the above picture. I could just get it off the ground but think I'd have a hard time walking with it.
Our apple trees have a lot less apples on them than they did last year.
And many of them have blemishes. They're maturing a lot earlier probably because of the hotter summer.
My zinnia plants are looking a little bedraggled but are still giving me lovely bouquets for inside.
All in all, not bad for the garden the last part of September.
Happy Homemaker Monday
