Wayback Wednesday: Garden in Happier Days

Tonight, after harvesting the last of the green beans, cucumbers, and peppers, I began to dismantle the garden in preparation for fall. Since the growing season here in New England is so short, even though there were still flowers on the pepper plants, the first frost would be here before the fruit was ripe so I pulled the pepper plants; the same with the cucumber and bean plants.

Here is a look back at the Kitchen Garden of 2008

This weekend I'll plant the fall spinach and lettuce, prepare the soil in the containers for a long winter's sleep and when the snow flies in February there will be canned tomatoes from the Garden of 2008.
