    Default Late season harvest

    It is beginning to cool down here but some of our plants in the backyard are refusing to surrender to the season.

    This is the section east of the greenhouse. The tomatoes and peppers are starting to go dormant for winter. But the eggplants just keep on growing.


    Here's Madison helping me harvest some of the eggplants and other goodies.


    Success! (With her "Rock Star" glasses)


    Hmm the tomato plants dont look so good anymore.


    Having a hard time finding the sugarsnap peas. The pods blend in so well with the rest of the plant.


    My wife caught Madison trying to pick the unripe pomegranate

    She is so cute, John! She reminds me of my youngest niece. I bet she does like to help out in the Greenhouse as well as the garden.

    Cheers,

    Your daughter is beautiful and not camera shy!
    I think I need to wear star glasses too when I take care of my orchids!

    Next year try planting your tomatoes in one of those hanging bags... it has a little hole in the bottom the plant grows through... like a cute upside down tree, keeps away 99% of the bugs and pest...
