Sunny September Garden

Well, the pumpkin patch has withered, and left only shocks of orange in the gray mud. I have plucked them from their vines and they now sit proudly on my front stoop to finish turning orange. I still have one left on the vine, a late bloomer that will hopefully be orange in a couple of weeks. The snap peas left a large number of dried pods on the vine, and I have more than I need to plant another crop next year. They have been cleared, and compost has been turned into the soil where I will plant my bounty of garlic cloves in a week or so.

I still have carrots, kale, celery, peppers, jalapenos, and some little baby romaines…we’ll see if they get any bigger. It has threatened frost a couple nights, but since it’s only been down to about 3 degrees we’ve been safe.

Time to start thinking about next year…corn again, with a fence this time? Green beans? Beets? The return of tomatoes and cucumbers? Perhaps only one or two kale plants though, I have more than me, my workmates, and friends know what to do with. One thing is for sure – I’m getting some straw mulch! I’m too close to an unkempt ditch not to have some protection against the weeds.

  1. Yes to beets! And onions are easy too. Very easy to “season” so that they can be stored all winter.
