What a beautiful day in Leavenworth County!
A good day to work at garden clean-up and catch-up.
My helpers were right there working with me.
I was picking all the tomato plants out, and gleaning what I could from them. I'll take them down to the brush pile tomorrow.
Ooops... stood right in the light... but I got about ten pounds of SuperSauce tomatoes I couldn't bear to throw out. If Kathy next door does not want them, I'll take them to the food pantry tomorrow morning.
Don't look now! There is ONE Howden pumpkin forming!!! Who knows? We may actually get a few pumpkins for Halloween!
This one is actually about at 2 pounds at the moment, the picture is a little deceptive.
There are still six small melons ripening in this barrel.
These are in the whiskey barrel next to the ones above. They are the only ones that squash bugs appeared on, and I couldn't save them.
The empty boxes... and we'll rotate next year. I guess I did leave ONE tomato in there, after pruning it down to where it was blooming again. There is also a green pepper, on the left, that is awash with tiny peppers. I left it, too.
Tomorrow (or after dinner) I'll hook the wagon up and take all the debris down to the pasture.
The last petunias of the year are on the deck of the henspa, and still going strong.
It was a great day for sunbaths, too!
