Harvesting: the last of the potatoes, chard, herbs, lemon cucumbers, green cucumbers, stunted carrots and tomatoes.
Planting: Still have not put in the ‘fall’ planting…maybe this weekend? Is it getting too late for more spinach, kale, winter cabbage, ect?
Growing: tomatoes, green beans, potatoes, lettuce, spinach, grapes, blueberries, zucchini, pumpkins, cucumbers, green beans, chard, herbs of all sorts
