Tomatoes are at the point we're getting more than we can eat, but neighbors and co-workers appreciate it. Still getting cucumbers, jalapenos, green onions and the yellow bells are starting to color. Squash & giant Marconi's are played out. Thinking of going with okra next year instead of green onions.

I have no idea. It would have done well this year, for sure! Who knows about next year. I've never known anyone to grow it around here.

Everything is done here but peppers. I still have a lot of Jalapenos and a few Bells and Chili's, but it's supposed to get into the low 40s at night in a couple days so they'll get pulled. It's been a decent year. Lots of Tomatoes. 😊

This past year, I grew a Salsa Garden. Roma and Big Boy tomatoes, Big Jim and Anaheim Hatch Peppers, Serrano Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers. Leaf lettuce, some Brussel Sprouts and Radishes and Onions, both green and cooking. Also grew many herbs in containers

 

This up coming year, I plan to grow some Sweet Corn, some more Hatch peppers, Serrano Peppers, Poblano Peppers, Jalapeno Peppers Cayenne Peppers and some Head Lettuce, some Tomatillo and Beefsteak tomatoes and Broccoli.  My garden is expanding by a bit more than 1/3 this year, so I do need to more to plant.

 

In the OSC seeds 2017 book, I have on order 1290,1571, 1720, 1820, 2090, 2330, 2405, 1924, 1775, 4150 for my Garden and 3140, 3045, 3105, 3155, 3090

That a lot of peppers.  Corn Takes up a lot of room, but sure is good.  We are making our garden bigger this year so we will have room for a few extra veggies.
