What happened to September? I feel like I missed a month!
Rain finally came. After the first bout one of my tomato plants dropped dead. I’ve not had a blight problem in the past and don’t know if blight killed that plant, but I decided not to risk it and pulled out all my tomatoes. Green tomatoes came inside and all the plants have gone to the city compost (I didn’t want to risk putting them in my home compost). I’ve frozen bags and bags of chopped tomatoes and pickled all the green cherry tomatoes. I even made a batch of homemade ketchup and tried a tomato ferment (it failed).
My winter greens are up and thriving, I’ve already been harvesting as much as I can use. Depending on how cold our winter gets, I may be harvesting plenty all winter. In the past I’ve gotten as much kale and collards as I want, and if it is warm I may get chard and lettuce.
Greenhouse construction is still underway. I’m excited to have a new type of space to experiment growing in.
