Of The 2015 Growing Season!

 

Wednesday night we had a light frost even though the recorded low for the night was 40 degrees. David checked all the plants. He said the butternut, acorn, and yellow summer  squash had all been nipped pretty good. The cherry tomatoes were just slightly nipped. He checked the weather reports for tonight we are under a freeze warning with temperatures falling between 25 and 30 degrees.  So he spent the afternoon bringing in the last harvest of the season.

 

 

The tomatoes spread out on newspaper on the floor of the spare room so they can continue to ripen.

David Harvested Some Squash Today

I washed all, now I have to find places to store it.  🙂

There are 13 butternut squash and 11 acorn squash.

Some of the butternuts have scars from an early season hail storm.

They are still going to be good eating!

Radish and Spinach Garden Spot

Ready for a replant.

This morning I picked all the radishes. I pulled all the sickly little spinach plants. I dug the soil up and raked it out. I dug trenches around my pepper plants placed fertilized potting soil around them. I then covered that back up with the earth soil. I hope that will give them a boost so they can put on peppers before to long.  I plan to replant some radishes and spinach tomorrow or the next day. I will keep them both to my left facing  Ricky Racoon this time. I think it was too sunny for the spinach on the right as that gets the sun from sun up until almost 2 in the afternoon. I also moved the one pepper plant that was in the shady corner over between the two  in the front row of peppers. We will see how this works out.   🙂
