Things are slowing down in the garden. I am not going out there every day, and we are getting pretty consistent rain. The fall lettuce is doing great, but the second planting of spinach has not sprouted yet. The eggplant is finished, the final tally was 21 eggplants weighing a total of 13 lbs. That was from one amazing plant! The baby lima beans are flowering like crazy and I should be picking pods in a few more weeks if the weather cooperates. What I have going now is tomatoes, jalapenos, baby limas, lettuce, and spinach.
This was a pound of jalapeno peppers and that brings the total for the year to almost 6 lbs. That is a lot of jalapenos for 4 plants. I am estimating I got between 80 to 100 jalapenos per plant. There might be a few more left, put this was probably the last good picking.
I picked the last of the cowhorn peppers this week.
I also picked the third watermelon of the season, this one weighed about 7 pounds.
Two small tomatoes, the green one was on the ground. The plants are loaded right now with green tomatoes, but I just hope there is enough time for them to ripen.
