Fall Cleanup Begins
Yesterday was a busy day in the Demonstration Garden. We had a lot to harvest, and then some plants to pull out and some seeds to plant!
Our fall beans were ready to pick. They don’t have a heavy crop, but they sure are delicious! We also pulled a few beets that were planted in the middle of the summer. (They weren’t very sweet…not sure if that is due to the variety or the weather!) Of course, there were tomatoes, eggplant, and peppers again.
We also fertilized the peppers and all the containers of flowers, since they are looking rather yellow and peaked due to lack of nitrogen. The little bit of fertilizer should help them be productive through the fall.
We pulled out 3 of the 8 cherry tomatoes: Chocolate Cherry, Italian Ice, and Ildi. I think Suncherry may go next week. The others are still producing and growing okay. Sun Gold actually has tons of blossoms on it right now!
