We have been picking tomatoes, peppers and pole beans for a couple of weeks. I have just put in 5 varieties of garlic for next year. Tomorrow, I will be pulling 5 pounds of carrots to make dilled carrots. I am eating my spicy dilled green beans as I type.
Here is a picture of today's harvest.
This is the time of year that I really love. Every day without frost means more harvest. At the first forecast of frost, I will cut the tomato plants and hang them inside to ripen the last few. We don't really start cleaning up the garden until after the first frost.
I have tomatoes put down, 16 jars of salsa, strawberry jam, dilled green beans and bags of the best garlic around (he looks over his shoulder for an argument from Dave Omak).
Here in the mountains it is not as warm as Florida or California and we may have to work more for it but we still enjoy home grown vegetables.
