Garden Update (goodbye, see you next year!)

Well, it’s time to say goodbye to my garden for another year. 2009 was a fantastic year in my garden. I figured out how to keep the squirrels and rabbits out w/ a strong fence and marigolds so this year’s bounty was incredible!! An opossum managed to lethargically climb into the garden on 2 random nights and snatch a couple of ripe pineapple tomatoes, but he or she never returned after that (I heard some rustling in my yard, thought it was a prowler, but it turned out to be a big old ‘possum!).

I’ve picked the last of the ripe veggies and got quite a haul as you will see in the photos. Last weekend I decided to pick the green tomatoes and immature red bell peppers before the first frost. I ended up w/ 25 tomatoes and 8 little green bell peppers. I placed the tomatoes in my kitchen window in hopes for them to eventually ripen.

Here’s a photographic chronology of the last couple of months in the garden:
