It's winding down!

It's winding down!

Fall is here and the garden has done its job and provided a bountiful harvest!  The eggplant, beans, corn, etc. are gone but those powerhouse tomatoes are still going strong!  Anissa and I harvested boxes of them...Beam's Yellow Pear, Green Zebra, Power's Yellow Heirloom, Amish Paste and Redfield Beauty, just to name a few.  We managed to find a few more zucchini, cucumber, raspberries, peppers, cabbage and rutabaga as well.  Our grand total harvest weight for the day was 53 lbs!  Thanks for your help today, Anissa! 

We were amazed by the activity of the squash bugs basking themselves in the sunshine while using their sucking mouthparts to feed on the squash vines and leaves!  Good thing our squash crop is nearly finished for this year!  Here is a link to information about these insects and what to do if you have an infestation in your garden next year.
