All Played Out

Our garden has weathered this hot, dry, summer very well; producing 4 varieties of tomato, white squash, bell peppers, anaheim peppers, cucumbers, a few baby corn, 5 juicy cantelope, 2 acorn squash and a pitiful butternut squash.
(Not to mention lots sticker burrs as well!)

But the time has come to dig it up- weeds and all & all the weeds- and get ready for fall. We will leave the okra, peppers and some tomatoes, since they are still producing, but the rest is getting ripped out... this weekend I hope!

(Pictured above are the 3 lg tomatoe varieties:
Old German- yellow/ orange
Purple Krem- deep red
Early Girl- bright red

and one of our delicious cantelope!)

So long juicy, summer fruits-
it's time to make room for roots and gourds!
