Garden Update for August 25th

This week's garden update~ Just a few pictures & captions

August 26th- Garden Overview

August 26th- Spaghetti Squash hiding like Easter eggs

August 26th- Still picking a few peas

August 26th- Overgrown Kale...Cabbage & Brussels Sprouts behind it

August 26th- 5 young cabbages growing, 2 green & 3 red

August 26th- Still waiting on the majority of the tomatoes

August 26th- Hot Pepper

August 26th- The melon vines have grown even more, lots of blossoms, 
hoping we get melons before the weather cools off too much

August 26th- Eggplant, covered in blossoms, no fruit yet

~Harvests From This Past Week~

August 20th- No explanation needed, I think we've all seen plenty of these by now

August 23rd- Another acorn squash and our first large tomato, Cherokee Purple

August 26th- Collard Greens, 2 more tomatoes- Mortgage Lifter

August 26th- A mountain of kale

That's what's happening in the garden this week.  It's time to start Fall Clean-up already.  There are lettuces that have bolted and spinach that's scraggly.  I'm hoping to have a little time in the evenings after it cools down to start pulling spent plants.  There's always, always something that needs attention.  
Happy Gardening & Harvesting & Preserving!
