What's Going in the Garden?

What's growing?!

Grapes came on this year. Few and small, but still exciting to see the grape come back.

Cucumbers--first time ever planting them and they've pretty much been left all alone--but four big boys have come off the vines already.

Asian pear produced 3-5 lil guys this year! Taste amazing!

Volunteer pumpkin starter! We'll see how this guy does as the plant started from seeds that spilled from our old Jack-O-Lantern out front last year! I've just let it grow where it started :)

Kiwis are still growing, carrots are still ready for harvesting, tomatoes are just turning, the pepper is finally turning, artichokes are just about done for, cilantros gone to seed, and the lettuce is getting out of control.

What didn't produce? Green beans, peas, zucchini, green onions, kohlrabi, and the strawberries never put on fruit. While this year has been slimmer pickings than last, I ironically preserved more food from the garden this year. 

If I stick around, I just might even attempt some fall and/or winter gardening....I could see uses for some winter greens, more carrots, perhaps some turnips.....
