Some Late-Summer Holdouts

Here are a few of the summer plants still struggling to finish up in this unusually chilly fall we've been having.


Chili Pepper

Lima Beans


The jalapenos were very prolific - I made several batches of salsa, although I didn't try to can any because I was so busy this fall - and two have gone red on the plant waiting for me to pick them. I think I'll save the seeds from them and try to plant them in the spring.

Many of my summer plants didn't really get going until late July, I think because I didn't do a very good job fertilizing when I installed the new garden bed. Next year I'll do better, I hope.
