Harvest Monday - Oct 28 2013

Deceptively, these harvests are all the last ones being harvest on 10/17.  We had a frost on Oct 19 this year, which is almost a whole month later than forever(or since I started to garden:).  I did not have to cover plants, protect plants or even worry about frost this year!  What a great garden year! 

For all other harvests this week, please visit Daphne's Dandelions.

These are the last harvests before I started cleaning off the yard in preparation for next spring...
Bell peppers
Eggplants, bittergourds, sweet peppers
Green chillies

Harvest Monday - 10/7/2013

I am posting two weeks worth of harvest in this post.  I just didn't get around to posting last week.  Since I don't have as much photos to share, should be alright posting them all in one post :) 

We are at the tail end of our harvests for this year.  Usually frost comes around the week of Sept 22, but not this year.  I 'm still waiting for news on the first freeze as that is the time when I go through  left over harvests and pick the garden clean.  This year, all my tomatoes are almost done ripening and so too with other vegetables.  I am totally satisfied with all the harvests and will not be scrambling to cover anything from the first freeze, like I usually do.  For a change, I am ready to let the garden go this year...

Tomatoes and apples
