Last Harvest...for the fifth time
I have the "Little Tomato Plant that Could." :)
I keep taking 'last harvest" pics, just to go out a few days later and find hidden gems. I am starting to take down the tomato plants now, though, and will prepare the beds for either winter gardens, or clover.
The raised lasagne style beds have been fabulous. I have never had tomatoes plants that were so big and bountiful. The eggplant is still producing and ripening, the peppers are all well, and I am FINALLY getting some beans. My rasberries, highly neglected, are benefiting from my neighbors consistant watering habits.
We also have some new family members....
One of the tomatoes I pulled up. Look at the size of the root, vs. the height of the box. Roots went right through clay earth :).
