|Garden at the end of September.|
Contrast this with the fresh spring view of April.
|Early spring garden view.|
September was a busy month in the garden and by the end of the month most of the leftover summer veggies such as beans and tomatoes have become chicken food. We did can and freeze the last of the tomato crop and I think we managed to put by 70-some quarts of tomatoes and 60-some pints of salsa.

Although the summer garden is done, the fall garden is doing well. We always plant greens and broccoli which always do well in the cooler weather.
|Broccoli ready to harvest.|
|Brussel sprouts....so far all Brussels and no sprouts.|
We also have a few Italian fig trees that are doing very well this year and have provided us with quite a few figs.
|Green and ripe figs.|
October will signal the end of most of the garden plants so we'll be able to send in the clean-up crew.
