What's Growing Wednesday?

I think it's a good thing that I only have one more of these posts to do after this one. My garden is getting boring and I'm feeling less and less inspired each week to post about it. It's slowing down and I'm okay with that.

We're getting a couple "chance of frost" nights each week and so every evening we go out and cover the vegetables. We haven't had frost yet but we're prepared for when it does.

The tomatoes are basically done. I'm still getting a few off my yellow brandywine and black cherry plants but I'm pretty sure by next week, they'll be ready to pull up.

The beans are still producing but it's getting more and more annoying to pick them. I have to really search and then I only end up with a few small handfuls. But I'm not going to pull them up yet, as long as there's still beans on them I'll keep picking!

The peppers are still going strong though! We had a crazy good crop of peppers this year and they still seem to have quite a bit of life left in them. My only concern is that they won't ripen before it gets too cold. But for now, they seem to be slowly inching their way towards picking time.

I still have swiss chard, beets, carrots, green onions, cucumbers and broccoli not pictured here. The rest has been harvested and is safely in my cold room or freezer.

And I have one more picture to share, of our little raspberry plant that is happily producing raspberries in September. We've already eaten 7 off of it and have a few more to pick.

That's it for this weeks garden share. Be sure to check back in next Wednesday for your very last What's Growing Wednesday post!


  1. I'm still waiting for my peppers to ripen too, I might try transferring them inside.

  2. Jackie - Are your peppers in pots? Because I think mine wouldn't do well with transplanting to indoors.
