End of the Summer Garden

This year’s garden wasn’t especially pretty but we did get a lot of food out of it:  cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, green beans, carrots, kale, onions, cabbage, chard, pumpkins, potatoes, summer squash and a nice assortment of herbs.  Not a lot of tomatoes, though.   Still yet to ripen:   apples and corn.  All the fruit-  cherries, raspberries, and apricots-  were eaten up by the birds, I think.  Somebody ate them and it wasn’t me!   We didn’t have gophers this year but that little white butterfly that lays gray eggs on cabbage-family vegetables which hatch into voracious green worms-  we had plenty of them.   The grape vine was very pretty but never had any grapes.  Maybe next year.  Here’s a few photos: pumpkinsgrapevine
