Garden Update for November

I wish the weather everywhere in the country was as nice as the weather we have been having.  We had a bit of a cool down mid October with temps dipping into the 40’s at night, but for the most part we have been having 50’s and 60’s at night with low to upper 70’s in the day.  Needless to say, the garden is happy.  My late summer garden has done quite well.  I’ve gotten lots of cucumbers and beans, and a few tomatoes.  I’ve gotten no squash, peppers, or eggplant.  If the first freeze comes late this year, I may get get some squash, I think they are delayed from the battle with the worms, but the worms are gone and there are a few tiny squash.  The peppers still appear to be very immature, maybe they need higher temps to do well.  Also, the eggplants has been blooming but have no fruit.  I don’t think it is a lack of pollination as I have seen bees and my cucumbers are getting pollinated.  I did plant them late so I’m guessing that is the problem.  But overall I am quite pleased with the results from my second summer garden.  The fall veggies I planted are doing very well, but that will be another post.

Cucumber and beans from the garden

Kahlo loves beans, though she didn’t appreciate having her picture taken as she was getting her “treat”.

The chickens love, love, love beans.
