Garden Update #17

Now that we're roughly half way through October, the garden is starting to dwindle down to its bare minimum. There's carrots, broccoli rabe, scallions and some perennials left, but that's about all. In this update, I'll show the current state of the garden as well as catch up on the rest of the harvests from the season!


The above photo shows the garden as it sits today (10/14). Carrots, scallions, broccoli rabe, an olive tree, Kangaroo Paw flower, and a Norfolk pine tree are all that remain. 

Below is a photo from the last day the tomatoes and peppers were growing. On October 8th, following a frost on the fourth, most of the garden was cut back.

10/8 Final Pepper & Tomato Harvest

10/10 Since the Heinz Tomato plant was small enough to move indoors, I was able to salvage the rest of the tomatoes left on the plant.
