Garden update

Well, here is a pic of the self-ripening tomatoes and their friends. I picked some Jalapenos and another Red Hot Cherry pepper.

I love all the different colors in this tomato as it ripens.

As for the rest of the garden, the jalapeno plant has one or two more to get a little bigger and be picked, the red hot cherry pepper plant has one more that needs to turn red, and the other plants . . . well, the squirrels or someone's cat keeps getting into them. A couple of the herbs have been completely demolished buy something digging holes in it. They haven't touched the chives yet though, which I think I am just going to leave and see if they come back in the spring, I would put them inside, but no room really. The strawberry plants will get trimmed back soon. The rose bush is dying or hibernating . . . not sure, the little buggers keep digging around in there too. I had already brought the cacti in a week or two ago since it gets rather cold at night. I will be trying to continue the life of those little guys. Pretty much, the garden is left up to the attempts during next spring.

  1. I wish we had some fresh produce from the garden. Sadly, it is cold here already (well, what I consider cold).

    Thanks so much for your comment on my syncopated hat. It is so soft!
