As summer turns to fall, just a few personal observations:
The last of the tomatoes are ripening. I remembered most of what I'd forgotten about canning so I'll be dining on salsa for quite some time.
We are in prime pepper season, as green turns to color. Best of all, the biggest of the big pumpkins is close to picking.
Not quite big enough to store a two year old nephew, but success. Guest blogger Hayden has learned about the negative effects of juglone (walnut stuff) and offers his latest on the garden:
JOHN'S FURY PART 3
