These pictures were taken exactly a week ago, but I've not gotten them into a post until now. I'd be interested in knowing how they compare to your garden.
My lone cherry tomato plant that isn't a cherry tomato plant is proving itself worth the garden space because we've had three very nice, ripe tomatoes from it so far. More to come if the weather cooperates.
These couple of Swiss chard plants obviously liked the fertilizer in their raised bed. They are a good three feet tall. I've also got plants in another bed that look much the same. I planted too much Swiss chard.
The morning glory plants around this tepee trellis could hardly be more lush. Has it produced many morning glory flowers? Not one. (Mangels for the poultry are planted on the left, beets on the right.)
The two standard sized little tomato plants I "inherited" have grown. And are producing great big tomatoes. In the week's time since this photo, that one on the right has gained a lot of color.
This is our largest jack-o'-lantern pumpkin. It's about as big as a beach ball.
And here are some of the pie pumpkins. I should have enough for making puree plus fall decorations for the window boxes.
With the luck of a bit more warm weather, we should harvest enough Red Kuri winter squash for ourselves and some to give away. They're well on their way to turning almost red which will signal that they're mature.
Our weather has definitely transitioned from summer to early fall. This next week's weather forecast is calling for highs in the 50s, maybe low 60s, but in the low 40s (eeep!) at night which will not help the last of the garden mature. You never know this time of year though. Mother Nature may be kind to us up here in the northwoods.
